With just over a month to go, excitement is building at Ticketmaster HQ for what must surely be the heaviest double bill the UK has seen in some time.
Here’s five reasons why you should not wait a minute longer before getting your ticket to While She Sleeps and Cancer Bats’ co-headline tour next month.
1. While She Sleeps CAN’T play Download
Because of the unwritten two-year rule, While She Sleeps won’t be returning to Download for a second year in a row. So if you were hoping they might announce a trip to Donington… they won’t. This might be your only opportunity to see them this side of summer.
Cancer Bats’ cover of the Beastie Boys classic is always a set highlight – but after we saw Korn and Slipknot do THIS back in January, we’re even more pumped to see it again!
3. Brainwashed could quite easily not have happened
WSS vocalist Loz Taylor underwent TWO bouts of vocal surgery which delayed the making of the album for a whole year. The fact it’s here at all is worth a celebration, let alone that it looks set to be one of the best metal albums of 2015.
4. Arsenic in the Year of the Snake.
I’m just going to leave this video here…
5. Because THiS is the kind of thing that happens at While She Sleeps gigs…
Whilst playing a shoe store in Camden, the band decided to finish their set OUTSIDE, in the middle of the street, in front of some confused tourists and commuters. Who’s to say that won’t happen again?!
