More bands announced for Download
KORN, VELVET REVOLVER, DRAGON FORCE, DEVILDRIVER, LAMB OF GOD, DIMMU BORGIR added.
In just 100 days the first major festival of the season arrives on 8, 9, 10 June with the best alternative line-up in the UK. Headlined by My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park, and Iron Maiden, organizers of the Download Festival are delighted to announce the addition of Korn, DevilDriver, Lamb Of God, Dimmu Borgir, Dragon Force and Velvet Revolver to the ever expanding bill.
Korn’s Download 2006 set saw vocalists from Ten Years, DevilDriver, Skindred, Stone Sour and Trivium fill the breach when Jonathan Davis was taken ill at the eleventh hour. Determined to give the performance the fans were waiting for last year, Korn have now been confirmed for Download 2007.
Jonathan Davis explains, “I am so looking forward to coming to the Download Festival this year. I was heartbroken to pull out last time. So this time I am very happy to be coming back and we promise to rock the place! I will definitely make-up for missing the last one. You can expect an amazing Korn show!”
Korn are one of the most influential bands of a generation. They have sold in excess of 25 million albums worldwide, their catalogue consists of seven consecutive US multi-platinum studio albums, and to date have been nominated for six Grammy Awards, winning two.
Capturing the public imagination on a massive scale, Velvet Revolver’s meteoric rise saw them play Live 8 in 2005, a year after the release of their multi-million selling debut album ‘Contraband’. A veritable supergroup, Velvet Revolver are Scott Weiland, Slash, Duff McKagan, Dave Kushner, and Matt Sorum.
Velvet Revolver lead singer Scott Weiland said – “I have to say, I ‘m a big proponent of “the true rock and roll extravaganza”. Although I might have to add that the Download Festival might have been a better handle”.
Dragon Force made their mark right across the globe with a colossal run of shows to promote one of the year’s most remarkable releases and sensations of 2006 ‘Inhuman Rampage’. After three extensive world tours, they have picked up a host of fans including Metallica and Zakk Wylde. This will be their second performance at the Download Festival, they return with their blink-and-you’ll-miss-it audio-visual extravaganza.
Dragon Force guitarist Herman Li said “We’ve had so many requests from fans asking us play to Download this year, and Dragon Force is always up for a free piss up, so there is no way we can let our fans down. We’re really looking forward to coming back for another rampage with more songs at Download 2007!”
