UK Rockers GRIFTER Gearing Up For Bloodstock Performance
UK-based dirty rock n' roll trio GRIFTER have announced a string of live dates leading up to their appearance at this year's Bloodstock Metal Festival.
The Ripple Music recording artists will be performing on Sunday, August 11th, the same day as Slayer, Anthrax, Gamma Bomb, Exodus, Devil Driver and Amorphis. Specifically, the boys will be taking the stage to support legendary metallers Wolfsbane, as well as Breed 77 and Gormathon!
Bloodstock Open Air (B-O-A) is the UK's biggest independent METAL festival. Held at the picturesque location of Walton on Trent in Derbyshire, B-O-A has won the hearts and minds of fans of heavy ROCK AND METAL by consistently showcasing the strongest metal line up on UK soil. You can expect some 15,000 metal heads descending on Derbyshire in August 2013 for 4 days of unadulterated full on Heavy Metal!!!
Meanwhile, Grifter is finishing recording the follow up to their self-titled 2011 debut, which will appear later in the year on Ripple Music on CD and...VINYL!!!! Guinness splatter vinyl no less!!!
The working title for the album is The Return Of The Bearded Brethren and will feature artwork from up and coming tattoo artist Jamie Campbell. Tracks from the album will include 'Braggard's Boast,' 'Black Gold,' 'It's Not Me It's You,' 'She Mountain,' 'Princess Leia,' 'Fire Water,' 'Paranoiac Blues,' 'The Return Of The Bearded Brethren,' 'Bow Down To The Monkey' and a cover of Black Sabbath's 'Fairies Wear Boots' that has become a popular fixture of the live set.
