Lost Society aren't very big, their last UK tour took in venues like The Boston Arms in London which is 200 capacity according to google (either way it's small from when I've been). Think Svalbard have more name value as they've managed to support a diverse range of bigger bands so probably given that push up.
Given more festivals are cancelling and now it's reaching festivals in July I'm starting to wonder if BOA will go ahead or without big line up changes. I don't know if bands will find fewer dates viable or conversely take whatever dates they can to make something.
As for the announcement, big meh
Lost Society- Used to be really good but changed their style to become quite bland with their latest. Would probably watch them but would of been better having got them on their last album.
Gravelines- Bored me to tears when I saw them as a support act in February, will avoid
Vexed- Support all the time around my area, seen them enough times to skip them.
Video Nasty's- liking what I'm hearing, picking up the mantle where Entombed left it.
Wolf Jaw- Bog standard rock, nothing amazing.
I say all this yet I know if everything is in the clear for BOA I'll have a good time line up or not
