THE proud and noble tradition of Northern Ireland bands battering Bloodstck is set to continue as Skypilot have been confirmed for the Jager Stage, joining Metal2TheMasses winners Lock Horns at Catton Park.
With just eight weeks to go the NI Hallion Battalion is geared up and ready to cheer on our local heroes – and maybe watch some of the other acts too.
Below is the official press release for your delictation…
There’s just 8 weeks until BLOODSTOCK’s metal weekender gets underway and BLOODSTOCK HQ have now locked in some of the bands for 2019’s Jagermeister Stage.
Belfast’s SKYPILOT bring their heavy riffs and groove to Catton Park’s Jager stage on Friday, joined by Leicester grunge/hard rock outfit, GRAVES and blues metal squad, BEGGAR. On Saturday, we welcome Irish heavy groove trio, BLACK SHUCK and one man death metal outfit FOUL BODY AUTOPSY. Then Sunday’s bill features Irish/Australian hard rockers, JAILBIRDS and you-can-work-it-out-from-their-name, WOMENOWAR! A second batch of Jagermeister Stage bands will be announced next month!
BLOODSTOCK is also pleased to announce the second wave of New Blood winners from their ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ finals, who all bag a spot to perform on the Hobgoblin New Blood stage. The finals are still taking place around the country, so get down to your local event and support grass roots music and help shape BLOODSTOCK’s line-up!
Landing a Friday New Blood Stage slot are Burnley’s winners, the Southern/doom metal squad, GRAND ELDER, Bournemouth’s black/death metal victors ANAKIM, and thrash/prog groovesters BLIND DIVIDE who triumphed in Cardiff’s final. Saturday’s lineup welcomes Wrexham’s top dogs, SCARS OF REMEMBRANCE. Joining Sunday’s New Blood fun are ELYREAN, the melo/tech thrashers who won in Wolverhampton, Hitchin melodeath victors FEAR BOUND, and instrumental tri-guitar Stoke champions, LOST IN LAVENDER TOWN.
