Heavy hitting Florida metalheads TRIVIUM are revealed as Friday’s Main Stage headliners in a UK exclusive for 2015.
Always effusive in their praise of UK audiences, the band are stoked to be making their first appearance at BLOODSTOCK. Frontman Matt Heafy raves, “The UK is where the world first took notice of TRIVIUM, and to pay true homage to that, TRIVIUM will be playing the most Metal festival that exists in the UK: BLOODSTOCK! We are thrilled beyond words to celebrate our first time at BLOODSTOCK with the the UK’s Metal elite.” With a new album on the cards in 2015 via label Roadrunner Records, BLOODSTOCK should be on the ‘must attend’ list for any TRIVIUM fan!
Swedish power metal titans SABATON are elated to be locked in as Friday night’s special guests. Bassist Par Sundstrom comments, “We just had a kick-ass tour in the UK with lots of sold-out shows! With this fresh in our mind, we cannot wait to return to these shores again and this time we can actually bring our full production to BLOODSTOCK! It will be the first time we have done a show like this at a British festival!” Can’t wait ‘til then? The band also have a one-off show on Jan 12 at The Forum in London, with support from DELAIN and BATTLE BEAST.
Portland, Oregon’s ‘dark folk’ metallers, AGALLOCH also join the bill for the Sunday. Having released fifth studio album, ‘The Serpent & The Sphere’ this summer, the band are excited to bring their atmospheric and progressive new material to Catton Park.
