Lawnmower Deth, Conan, Lotus Eater and more join Bloodstock line-up
With Bloodstock finally happening next month (!), the festival have made a couple of line-up changes due to international bands being unable to travel to the UK.
The biggest change on the Catton Park bill is Thursday’s Sophie Lancaster stage headliner The Night Flight Orchestra dropping off the line-up, and being replaced by English thrashers Lawnmower Deth. The band say: “We are truly sorry you’re not going to get The Night Flight Orchestra. They’re terrific and awfully melodic. Naturally as the B‑TEC replacement for them, we sound exactly the same, so your disappointment should be somewhat abated. Just think melodic Swedish hard rock, with balloons.
“However, the chance to get in a field, well a tent, with you lovely lot and some beer, did we mention beer, is the bar open yet? Bloodstock, we’re coming! At our age, slightly slower, but we’ll be there. Bring beer. And dancing shoes. And beer.”
Elsewhere, Conan are replacing Soen on the Friday night, teasing: “We return to Bloodstock, dead eyes ablaze, breath like frost in our lungs as we arise from our slumber. From a lake of frozen souls, all hail Conan!”
Lost Society will be replaced by Divine Chaos, while Lotus Eater (fresh from their killer new Oli Sykes collab) are taking over from Savage Master. On top of that, Shrapnel replace Noctem, Necronautical replace Blasphemer, and Spectral Darkwave join the bill on the Sunday.
