Bring Me The Horizon will play Download Festival 2014, it has been confirmed.
The UK band, who released their fourth studio album ‘Sempiternal’ last year, lead the latest raft of additions to the heavy metal event’s line-up. Sepultura and Twisted Sister have also both been added to the bill, while other new names include Sharon Den Adel, Within Temptation, Behemoth, Radkey, The Howling, Press To Meco, Fozzy, Collibus and Christian metal band Skillet. For all the new additions, see Downloadfestival.co.uk.
Speaking about their slot, Bring Me The Horizon‘s Oli Sykes said: “We’re over the moon about playing Download. Before we got confirmed I had already asked for guest list as there was no way I was going to miss Linkin Park play ‘Hybrid Theory’ in full. When we were offered to play on the same day and on the same stage just a few hours before, it was a no brainer. I’m crowd surfing to ‘Papercut’, mark my words!”
The rock festival will be headlined by Aerosmith, Linkin Park and Avenged Sevenfold as well as seeing previously announced appearances from Alter Bridge, Rob Zombie, Sikth, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Fall Out Boy.
Slipknot, Rammstein and Iron Maiden all played headline sets at Download Festival 2013 with support from 30 Seconds To Mars, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mötörhead, Enter Shikari, A Day To Remember and Bullet For My Valentine.
