one of the headlining acts for the 2010 edition of Supersonic Festival.
GODFLESH will be returning to their roots for the highly acclaimed
Supersonic Festival, which is held in the band's hometown of Birmingham,
England. This special headlining appearance will be GODFLESH's first UK
show in over ten years.
GODFLESH founding member JUSTIN BROADRICK comments:
"We cannot even recall specifically the first Birmingham Godflesh show.
Oddly, we think it was supporting Suicide in 1988, just after the release of
our first Mini LP on Swordfish, the record label of Birmingham's best record
shop. So it's only natural that the first Godflesh UK show in its original
form in over 10 years, comes home to its birthplace, and for whom better
than Supersonic, the organisation responsible for keeping Birmingham on the
map with underground music, be it metal or otherwise. It is with great
pleasure that Godflesh returns to its roots."
Supersonic Festival takes place from the 22nd to the 24th October, 2010 at
the Custard Factory in Birmingham. View the flyer at
