Hard rock / metal band Fury UK have been confirmed to play the Bloodstock Open Air Metal festival 2008 on Saturday 16th August, at Catton Hall, Derby, on the Lava Stage. This will be the band’s Bloodstock debut & is a thrill not least due to the international artists also playing the event e.g. Nightwish, Opeth, Iced Earth, Evile & many more. The festival, which is justifiably right at the top of the gig calendar, takes place over 3 days in-all on 15th, 16th & 17th August.
This is an excellent addition to Fury UK’s exciting times currently as the band has a full gig schedule & have recently announced a September tour of the UK, including two dates with Greek power metallers Firewind, & several dates with the Swedish metal band Core Of Nation. The tour takes in London (two dates), Manchester, Bury, Leeds, Shrewsbury, Liverpool, Doncaster & Oswestry.
This year has seen things really take off for Fury UK, following the release of their “Salvation” EP. Clive Leighton, Head of Marketing for Bloodstock Festival says “Bands like Fury UK are exactly what we want at Bloodstock, representing the real future of hard rock & metal for many years to come”.
