Download Festival, Donington Park, UKBRIT ROCKERS SKUNK ANANSIE ADDED TO DOWNLOAD BILL!

Skin and the band are back, and are set to take Donington by storm in June.  The band rose to fame in the ‘90s, and thanks to hits including Hedonism, Weak and Secretly, became one of the loudest and most prolific bands on the touring circuit.

In November 2009, SKUNK ANANSIE released their greatest hits album Smashes and Trashes, a 15-track release that also contained three brand news songs.  Last year they unveiled out the forth studio album Wonderlustre, which threw the gates wide open for some hugely anticipated live shows.

Their presence on the Download line up will be one of their biggest sets of the comeback, so don’t miss what promises to be a raucous set when SKUNK ANANSIE play Donington in June.

Download Festival, Donington Park, UKSEVEN MORE BANDS ADDED TO DOWNLOAD LINE UP!

Despite all the negative criticism so far to this year’s Download Festival line up the freight train shows no sign of slowing up, with seven more bands just added to the bill!

This announcement is a juicy one, and includes new kids on the clock VERSAEMERGE (tipped to be the next Paramore), actress Taylor Momsen’s rock outfit THE PRETTY RECKLESS and mighty US rockers PUDDLE OF MUDD, who are returning to the UK for the first time since 2002.

Roadrunner signings TIMES OF GRACE, featuring Killswitch Engage’s Adam Dutkiewicz and former Killswitch vocalist Jesse Leach will perform, along with West Yorkshire heavy metal outfit EVILE.  Completing this new lot of bands, SUICIDE SILENCE will be back, as will UK hardcore punk rockers YOUR DEMISE.

Editors note:
In our humble opinion here at e-tainment news we support the organisers of all festivals having to deal with all the logistical problems of running a large scale public event as well as trying to satisfy the needs of everyone who attends.

Of course in an ideal world everyone would love every single band but that’s not what festivals are about, they are about hanging out with friends, listening to music and possibly discovering a band you haven’t heard of before, drinking beer, eating crappy burgers and having a good time in the sun (hopefully).

One thing is sure and you will not like or be able to see every band on a line up that consists of over 150 bands over 3 days, so people have a little more patience and remember your favorite band might not be available this year so please keep criticism to a minimum and if you truly don’t like any of the bands playing at a festival THEN DON’T GO!

Anyway nuff said we are sure all of these will be raising hell with this year’s Download crowds – Sounds like it’s gonna be a loud one.
