Dozen More Bands Confirmed For Download
Joey Tempest’s Europe head the list of a further 12 acts which have just been confirmed for this summer’s Download Festival. Come inside for the full rundown… and videos of each (well, most) of the dozen bands.
Download – headlined by The Prodigy, Metallica and Black Sabbath – takes place June 8-10 at Donington Park.
The full current roster of artists and ticket details are here.
Besides Europe (watch them playing the wondrous Carrie below)…
…The other 11 newly announced bands include the Anti-Nowhere League. Here’s A-NL’s Animal in full flight, mangling, manhandling and mistreating Ralph McTell’s Streets Of London:
…American deathcore outfit Emmure. Here they are getting severely in your face with the magnificently intense Demons With Ryu:
…Greek metallers Firewind, featuring Ozzy’s guitarist, Gus G. Here they are Breaking The Silence with guest vocalist Tara Teresa:
…We’re big fans of Halestorm, featuring Lizzy Hale. Their version of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance always goes down a storm at their live shows; expect it to do the same at Download:
…Cambridge-based melodic post hardcore combo Mallory Knox have also been added to the Download bill. Here they are playing Oceans:
…Floridians Stellar Revival, we hear, ‘aim to bring back honesty, rebellion, and a new way of doing things into good old-fashioned rock’. See if you agree by checking out The Crazy Ones:
…Canadian rockers Theory Of A Deadman have been featured heavily on the CR website in the past. This is one of our favourite songs of theirs: Bad Girlfriend.
…British prog metallers The Safety Fire boast that they have Huge Hammers. See if it’s true below:
…Here are Norwegian punksters Turbonegro and the rather splendid Sell Your Body (To The Night) from back in 2003:
…And keeping true to the ‘Turbo’ theme, here are Bristol’s own Turbowolf with the stupendously storming A Rose For The Crows:
…The final band of the 12 are ‘infectious hard rockers’ Broken. We couldn’t find a vid of them – sorry!
