Not ones to be outdone by Download’s recent mammoth 43 band announcement, the folks over at Bloodstock Open Air made their own mammoth announcement - albeit in a more roundabout way.
On stage at their recent show at London’s Alexandra Palace, Aussie metalcore titans Parkway Drive announced they’d be back rather sooner than expected at the UK’s premier metal festival - something echoed in an announcement by Bloodstock themselves who confirmed the legends were not just appearing, but headlining the Saturday night of the festival.
Frontman Winston McCall told Bloodstock: “We’re pretty damn excited! This will be our first shot headlining a UK festival. Bloodstock has a hell of a reputation and is renowned for having one of the best festival sites and atmospheres going. We’ll be bringing full production, we want to give Bloodstock a set that’s worthy of a headline slot! We’re psyched! Thanks for having us!”
If their current arena run is anything to go by, there’s bound to vicious breakdowns and pyro aplenty and they are definitely not one to be missed.
