They are announcing some main stage bands at the Bloodstock weekend?

Watching the Download film last night, I can safely and happily say I don't mind if they keep booking these awful emoscreamocore bands - At least they're not booking rappers.

Yes, but no headliners like they originally said despite all three being locked in.

I saw this on Facebook and the number of people asking who either of these were leaves me despairing.

The new Thy Art Is Murder song seemed to go down well though. :(

It was on a Bloodstock page, maybe the post by Vicky herself. Can't find it now though.

One of the Facebook admins has already had to shoot down a Bring Me The Horizon rumour. It's not great that people took it seriously !

Looks like Code Orange have had to cancel all of their summer festival dates including bloodstock. Absolutely gutted. :(

Interested to see who replaces them though. Quite a big slot to fill fourth down...

Deicide are in Europe that weekend, free on the Saturday and are about the right size.

So looks like we'll get a Sophie band bumped up to Dio.


Expect it's probably too late to get another band of that size. Shame though as I was hopeful after Code Orange cancelled but if all we're gonna get instead is one of the nobodies from the Sophie stage then it's hardly anything to get excited about.

CO are not a band I care about at all but unfortunate at this stage.
