Metallers set for first UK festival since the death of their drummer
The band play before headliners System Of A Down in what will be their first UK festival show since their drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan passed away.
The band also spoke about how they’re coping without Sullivan, with Shadows adding: “It’s tough. The guy was such a big part of our lives. It’s like a hole we’ll never fill. Everything seems a little bit darker and a little bit number.”
The band added that their new drummer Arin Ilejay was settling in well and that he was “a good fit for the band right now.”
