Festival News: More names added to BMTH day at All Points East
Just when we all thought Bring Me the Horizon’s curated All Points East line-up couldn’t get any better they go and add the ever popular Sleeping With Sirens!! The Florida outfit have been consistently building their craft since their debut release in 2010, recruiting an army of fans along the way. This summer is a looking like it might be a special one, frontman Kellin wrote on Twitter that they were in the recording stages of their 6th studio album, he dropped a few hints saying that it would most likely sound closer to their earlier work which as we know is a bit heavier; no doubt we shall hear a preview of these new songs at All Points East!
In addition, the line-up for the Firestone Stage was also released, a chance to catch the best and brightest newcomers:
Where once was 4 is now 2, Scottish band Vukovi are back, now as a duo after a short break away recording their newly crafted album! Frontwoman Janie has confirmed that they sound of this new material will be slightly different but will still have the heart of Vukovi with their usual gigantic riffs and catchy chorus’s!!
Second on the Firestone Stage is industrial punks Black Futures, who have had an incredible start to 2019; just coming off a tour supporting Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes which grew their fan base massively. Secondly the bands latest’s mind bending single ‘Me.TV’ featuring Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie has been said to feature on the duo’s debut album! A must watch at All Points East, the bands mix of classic punk and post-apocalyptic synths works perfectly, a non-stop fun filled show.
PENGSHUi are also set to take to the Firestone Stage, their red-hot mix of Metal, hip hop and dance music fuses into one fantastic musical smoothie! The band have major roots in the metal scene, playing in bands since they were young but more recently collaborating with some godfathers of the bass and hip-hop scene such as Flux Pavilion, Foreign Beggars and even Goldie!
Strong willed anti-pop singer tiLLie joins the gang also, only having released a handful of singles has already gained this Atlanta singer a budding fan base, it also landed her a support slot on fellow All Points East act Yonaka’s tour. This firecracker of an act is a must watch, with the way she’s going she will be huge in a few months!
Bring Me the Horizon definitely know how to create the dream festival line-up, with the announcement from frontman Oli Sykes that the band will be performing a 2-hour career spanning set and the already amazing line up featuring the likes of Architects, Run the Jewels, IDLES and SCARLXRD; this is looking like possibly the best weekend of the summer!!!
