BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR FESTIVAL is thrilled to reveal that New Orleans sludgemeisters DOWN are to headline the Friday night at BLOODSTOCK 2014. The show will be a UK exclusive.
2014 also sees the pencilled release of ‘DOWN IV: Part 2′, the second in the band’s series of EPs. The opus follows in the footsteps of ‘DOWN IV: Part 1 – The Purple EP’, which hit stores last winter to a flurry of critical acclaim. The band have been hard at work in recent weeks demo’ing material at frontman, Philip Anselmo’s infamous ‘Nodferatu’s Lair’ studio, outside of New Orleans, LA.
Arguably one of the finest metal frontmen of his generation, Philip Anselmo is looking forward to setting foot on BLOODSTOCK’s hallowed soil, stating: “We are more than elated to be a part of BLOODSTOCK FESTIVAL this coming year! This should be a blast, and I hope everyone shows up to support this great event!”
Bassist, Pat Bruders adds: “I’m looking forward to another great time at BLOODSTOCK FESTIVAL! When I was there two years ago with Crowbar, it was a blast! DOWN is getting ready to tear it up at BLOODSTOCK in 2014, so get ready people! Let’s BRING IT!!!!!”
Tickets for 2014’s event are already on sale at ‘early bird’ prices, a bargainous
