Five more bands announced: Cancer Bats, Taake, Raging Speedhorn, SHVPES, & Resin
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’
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: https://undergroove.bigcartel.com. Brush up on your Speedhorn history on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/ragingspeedhorn/.

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’ here
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 haven’t come across Resin before, treat your eyes and ears to the video for ‘Burn’
Bloodstock will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 8th-11th August 2019. Get additional information over at http://www.bloodstock.uk.com.
