Hatebreed were recently announced to play Bloodstock 2014 and since the band were recently in the UK for the Vans Warped Tour, Nuclear Blast’s UK team decided to quiz frontman Jamey Jasta about his favourite memories from the band’s 2012 appearance at the renowned festival. The video interview can be viewed down below.

Bloodstock will be held at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 7th-10th August 2014. Tickets for 2014’s event are still on sale at special EARLY BIRD prices – a total snip at £115 for a 4-day weekend ticket with camping. There is only a limited number of early bird tickets left. When they’re gone, they’re gone, and tickets revert to full price! Get your tickets at this location.

With the three 2014 headliners already announced, the event is shaping up to be the strongest yet. Friday night’s bill toppers are New Orleans sludgemeisters, Down. Joining them to head up Saturday night are black metal overlords, Emperor and closing out proceedings on Sunday are the mighty thrash legends, Megadeth. Also announced so far are Carcass, Hatebreed, Children Of Bodom, Decapitated, Lacuna Coil, Primordial, Amon Amarth, Obituary, Crowbar, Saxon, Prong, Flotsam & Jetsam and Evil Scarecrow.

When Francesco Artusato (The Francesco Artusato Project and All Shall Perish) and John Sankey (Devolved, ex-Fear Factory, ex-Divine Heresy) got together in order to expand their music creativity, Devil You Know was born. Over a dozen songs were written before they settled for a singer, who would eventually be found in Howard Jones (Blood Has Been Shed, ex-Killswitch Engage). “We were unsure if Howard would be interested,” says Sankey. “Yet, when he received the material, a creative ideal began to solidify.”

Working with Logan Mader (Gojira, Five Finger Death Punch) in what will become the debut album of Devil You Know, the band has a lot to thank the producer for: Logan definitely helped us realize and define our sound. He went from producer, to unsung member, to friend.”

Through Monte Conner, Devil You Know just got a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment, that should release the aforementioned album early next year. Also international touring plans and a full touring lineup will be announced soon.

Since their first full-length album, Machine Head have released all their works with Roadrunner Records. 18 years later, they decided it was time to part ways… sort of. The band has spent the last year in search of a new label and has finally decided to settle with Nuclear Blast Entertainment, the recent division of Nuclear Blast Records, founded by the latter’s owner Markus Staiger and former Roadrunner A&R chief and long-time friend of Machine Head, Monte Conner. Quoting Rob Flynn: Monte Conner has believed in Machine Head for 20 years, his belief has never wavered, and we are extremely proud to work alongside him once again.”

The first release under the new label should happen in early 2014, as Machine Head are about to enter the studio and give shape to the successor of “Unto The Locust”. Also a massive worldwide tour should follow suit, in order to promote the band’s eighth studio album.
