Bloodstock Open Air has announced today that Behemoth will be headlining the festival on Friday 10th August 2012. Nergal’s statement about the band’s festival appearance:
“We couldn’t do the show for obvious reasons last time, I was in a deep shithole with my sickness, but I really felt obliged to come back and do BLOODSTOCK as soon as possible. We are really fortunate that they invited us back, we couldn’t turn it down, and this is the perfect opportunity to make this up to the people that missed us last time. For us it’s a great pleasure to come back to the UK after two years, and I can promise we will bring full production – lights, pyro – it’s gonna be awesome and we can’t wait. This is not only the first time we headline a festival, but also our first open air appearance in the UK, so it’s gonna be special!”
Other bands recently confirmed are Seattle thrashers Sanctuary, The Black Dahlia Murder and Swedish heavy metallers Grand Magus.
