More SOS Festival Bands Announced
Yet more excellent additions to the SOS festival line-up have now been announced including Chasing Dragons, Lock Up Laura, Twisted Illusion and more.
"Careering into view like a raging typhoon, Chasing Dragons are a female-fronted, full-throttle hard rock band with a defining punk undercurrent alongside moments of metal. Unafraid to step outside their realms of molten riffs, the unrelenting, rocket fuelled performance is something you could see Lemmy tipping his Stetson to in approval. The band joins SOS on the Dean Hocking Stage, Sunday.
Lock Up Laura, formed in 2011 in Lincoln, have burst onto their local music scene & quickly had the wider public wanting to know more, including "who is Laura?" They release a full debut album in May this year and their soaring melodic vocals and crashing guitar riffs are a welcome addition to the Dean Hocking Stage line-up for Saturday at SOS.
Fear Me December is a power trio originating from Argentina. After recording their first EP, entitled Who Cares?, the band started a 26 show tour around Argentina which included numerous cities, provinces, plus Uruguay. In early 2014 they relocated here in Manchester to continue their career and rapidly began playing lives shows across the country. We're delighted to have them open up the Dean Hocking Stage on Sunday.
The majesty and madness of Twisted Illusion is hard to vocalise; a band with furious fire-bearing prog rock influences from Rush & Dream Theater, with technical prowess and a heart of fist-pumping hard rock. They're Manchester based and we are very happy to add them as the opening band on our Saturday line-up at SOS.
We are also delighted to add metallers Reverted to the Metal Nation Radio Acoustic Stage on Friday night. This band is London based, formed in 2010 and released a debut album Sputter The Worms. They've supported both Evile and Fozzy in recent times, fast-building a great reputation for in-your-face metal akin to Metallica. The band brings a gritty edge to our Friday night line-up on acoustic.
SOS is presented by independent record label Rocksector Records & 2015 will be the 8th such event. Previous headliners include I AM I, GUN, Black Spiders, Heavens Basement, Absolva and Beholder.
In 2015, the event takes place on 17th - 19th July, and tickets which are already on-sale, represent outstanding value once again at £15 for a weekend, £10 for Saturday or Sunday single day tickets. Friday night is charged separately at £5 or for weekend ticket purchasers it's included in the price."
