Bloodstock is the premier metal festival in the UK, showcasing the cream of rock & metal across a wide spectrum of genres. The 2017 edition takes place from the 10th to the 13th of August. Head over to the festival’s website to find out much more & pick up tickets, but be quick as it’s close to selling out!
The line-up this year is one of the best the festival has ever managed to put together. With a huge range of established & up-and-coming bands spread across the four days. Sunday is turning out to be one of the best looking days with the upper slots of the stages filled with absolutely quality bands. One such band playing second from top on the Sophie Lancaster stage is Bossk.
Having called time on their short but very successful careers in 2009, the band reformed in 2012 finally releasing their debut album, Audio Noir. Their brand of sludgy post-metal is one of the more exiting prospects of the entire weekend.
We’re very proud to bring you an interview with Bossk.
1. Tell us a bit about yourselves. How’d you get started as a band?
Started off just trying to write music that was different to what we’d done in our previous bands. But with no constraints as to what style. We wanted to cover as much ground as possible, which is why our initial songs were so long.
2. How are you feeling about playing Bloodstock this year?
Very excited. Our set in 2013 was one of the best festival shows we’d ever played. Not typically our crowd either, so was a great surprise.
3. What can people expect from your set?
The loudest riffs of the day.
4. What bands (if any) are you hoping to check out while you’re there?
Venom Prison play our day. Will be checking them out for sure.
5. What’s the future plans for the band?
Working on new material for a new release.
We’d like to thank Bossk for taking the time to speak with us. Make sure you check them out at Bloodstock & on their future tours. You can keep up to date with the band’s touring schedule using BandsInTown or Songkick.
Their latest album, Audio Noir is out now & can be picked up from all major streaming services such as Spotify, Google Play & Apple Music. You can also pick the album up over on Bandcamp. If you want a physical copy or merchandise then head over to Amazon, HMV & BigCartel!
