We’re a bit excited about this.
FNM have announced dates in Glasgow and London after their Saturday night slot at Download. Pre-sale tickets are available from Wednesday with general on-sale on Friday. We will see you down the front.
The original line up of Primus are set to return to the UK for 3 very special ‘An Evening with Primus’ shows, consisting of 2 full sets and encores.
‘Primus & The Chocolate Factory’ will be performed in it’s entirely, an album born out of a New Years Eve Willy Wonka-themed Primus show. Claypool says “…it felt good… I don’t think we’ve ever had a better combination of elements,” it felt so good, in fact, that he decided to take Primus into the studio to prepare the soundtrack for an album release. Claypool admits that he’s always, “in some way, wanted to be Willy Wonka,” and, also, that he’s always wanted to work a cover of “The Candyman” — a memorable number from the film’s soundtrack — into Primus sets.
The dates are;
23rd June – Brixton Academy
24th June – Manchester Apollo
25th June – Birmingham Academy
Tickets are available from 10.00am on March 6th
In the meantime, enjoy Winonas Big Brown Beaver
We’re getting excited for the summer so here’s our top ten tracks we will be losing our shit to come June.
10. Clutch – Electric Worry
The Friday afternoon main stage slot is sure to be a rocking affair with Neil Fallon and his merry men set to unleash some pure rock fury on us all.
9. Crobot – Nowhere to Hide
Crobot are ace! Fact. Zombies shouldn’t run. Fact! But this video is still aces. Fact!
8. Bodycount – Institutionalised
This take on the Suicidals classic should get shit stirred up when Mr T brings his guitar wielding death squad back to our shores.
7. Marilyn Manson – Third Day of a Seven Day Binge
Mazza has really come back strong with The Pale Emperor, headlining the 2nd stage on Saturday this song pretty much sums up how we’ll be feeling by the time he hits the stage.
6. KISS – Love Gun
5. L7 – Shitlist
These girls know how to get shit done and it’s great to have them back. Shitlist is and always will be a go to track for shit losing. Expect a massive queue at lost shit property department afterwards.
4. Butcher Babies – They’re Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-Haaaa!
Brutal and beautiful. Butcher Babies are going to tear Download a new hole. Guaranteed!
3. Slipknot – Custer
Cut, cut, cut me up and
Fuck, fuck, fuck me up!
Pretty much the odds on favourite to create a frenzy of insanity when they unleash this beast on Donington.
2. Judas Priest – Painkiller
Still one of the best bands around, and this just reminds us of dislocating fingers while trying to play it on Rock Band. Epic.
1. Faith No More – Falling to Pieces
Speaking of Epic, FNM are sure to be Epic and Epic will definitely be Epic, but we’ve gone for Falling To Pieces.
We cannot FUCKING wait for Faith No More. Fat Bastards!
What tunes are you looking forward to?
In alphabetical order they are:
Heart of a Coward
In Hearts Wake
New Years Day
The One Hundred
The Pink Slips
Sirens In The Delta
Pretty damn sweet eh!
They had us at Faith No More to be honest.
