British madcap thrashers LAWNMOWER DETH have been confirmed for this year's edition of Bloodstock Open Air festival in the UK.
LAWNMOWER DETH were active in the late '80s and early '90s, before reforming in 2008. The band has since played a number of shows, including performances at Download festival and Damnation Festival.
LAWNMOWER DETH are due to headline the Sophie Lancaster stage at Bloodstock on Friday, 12th August.
LAWNMOWER DETH frontman PETE "QUALCAST MUTILATOR" LEE comments:
"Bloodstock 2011. Yeah, this is going to work on several levels. First and foremost, a long and overdue chance to play to the bearded masses. Never in the history of festivals has one had a reputation for spouting so much facial choppery; I can only hope that Flymo's fluff is enough to keep 'em happy. It's going to be one big facial love in. Secondly, it's free tickets for Motorbonce, so we're chuffed. And thirdly, the opportunity to headline the Sophie stage was just too good. Her abhorrent murder in 2007 is even more pertinent for me, it was only 10 miles from where I live. If the memory of Sophie on this stage can breed just a little open-mindedness and tolerance then the world is a better place. See you in the pit, beardy weirdies."
