Witchsorrow, Dripback and Battalion added to Bloodstock

Bloodstock Open Air have announced three additional acts for the Sophie Lancaster stage at this year’s festival.

Necro Skull of Witchsorrow comments on their return: “We are truly honoured to be returning to cast a shadow over Bloodstock once more. We promise you total doom annihilation, a celebration for the damned as the end of the world looms at the end of this wretched annum. To be in the company of such excellent bands as Watain, Alice Cooper, Orange Goblin, Grand Magus and Winterfylleth is a grand thing indeed. God curse us, every one!”

Dripback will be returning for the second year in a row to perform for fans. “For us it’s all about being intense in tents, so this really is the perfect festival slot for Dripback. We’re all so buzzing about playing with Crowbar, Hatebreed, Testament and all the other awesome bands, this really is the best festival.”

Battalion complete the new additions and will make their UK debut at the festival. “It’s the first time for us to play in England! What a fucking start! We’re looking forward to kick some ass there!!! See ya Bloodstock!!! Cheers from Zurich, the Battalion-Bastards”

Bloodstock Open Air 2012 takes place at Catton Hall August 9th – 12th. Tickets are available from www.bloodstock.uk.com
