Cancer Bats, Taake, Raging Speedhorn, Shvpes & Generation Kill Confirmed For Bloodstock 2019

It’s almost Valentines Day and BLOODSTOCK’s true love is metal of all kinds! With that in mind, BLOODSTOCK’s got five more bands lined up for a hot date at Catton Park this summer.

CANCER BATS land a Ronnie James Dio main stage slot on Saturday!  Hot enough to melt the snow, perhaps you already caught one of their blistering UK shows in the last couple weeks? The Canadian hardcore squad recently released their critically acclaimed sixth studio album, ‘The Spark That Moves’ via Bat Skull Records.  Check out their brand new video for ‘Inside Out’ at:

Yeah!  Mutha fucking BLOODSTOCK!!!  Many hails to our dark lord Lucifer for allowing us to grace the stage on this truly metal day!  We’re stoked to rip this fucker with all our UK brothers and sisters! Let’s DO this!!

Cancer Bats

BLOODSTOCK’s pleased to declare that Norway’s TAAKE are set to headline Saturday night on the Sophie Lancaster stage.  The Bergen-based band’s most recent release, ‘Kong Vinter’ was released in 2017, but get a visual taste of TAAKE with the video for ‘Nordbundet’, taken from their 2011 opus, ‘Noregs Vaapen’.

Brit crew RAGING SPEEDHORN will be joining us from Corby on Friday, as special guests on the Sophie Lancaster stage. Following on from their 20th anniversary show in London last year, you can now grab a 100% official bootleg via Undergroove at:

Birmingham metalheads SHVPES jet off to the US on tour next month, but will be back in plenty of time to take up a spot on Saturday’s Sophie bill. Not familiar with these guys? Have a listen to ‘Afterlife’ from their Spinefarm-released latest album ‘Greater Than’ at: 

GENERATION KILL are also added to the Sophie stage line-up on Saturday.

Fronted by former Exodus frontman, Rob Dukes, GENERATION KILL have been hard at work on a brand new record, which includes a guest solo from Slayer/Exodus axeman Gary Holt. Here’s hoping it’s out before BLOODSTOCK! The band debuted new song ‘The Rat King’ during a recent radio interview – take a listen at (the song starts at 6:30):

BLOODSTOCK ‘Metal 2 The Masses 2014’ alumni, RESIN join the Sophie stage gang on Sunday.  The Leicester based post-grunge rockers released their ‘The Cycle of Need’ album in mid-2018.  If you’ve not come across RESIN before, treat your eyes and ears to the video for ‘Burn’.
