ANNOUNCED TODAY: CHASING DRAGONS, LOCK UP LAURA, TWISTED ILLUSION & FEAR ME DECEMBER for the DEAN HOCKING (Main) Stage whilst REVERTED join them on The METAL NATION RADIO Acoustic Stage.
Careering into view like a raging typhoon, CHASING DRAGONS are female-fronted full-throttle hard rock, with a defining punk undercurrent and moments of metal. Unafraid to step outside their realms of molten riffs, the unrelenting, rocket fuelled performance is something you could see Lemmy tipping his Stetson to in approval. The band joins SOS on the Dean Hocking Stage, Sunday.
LOCK UP LAURA formed in 2011 in Lincoln, have burst onto their local music scene & quickly had the wider public wanting to know more, including “who is Laura?”. They release a full debut album in May this year and their soaring melodic vocals and crashing guitar riffs are a welcome addition to the Dean Hocking Stage line-up for Saturday at SOS.
FEAR ME DECEMBER is a power trio originating from Argentina. After recording their first EP, entitled “Who Cares?“, the band started a 26-shows tour around Argentina which included numerous cities, provinces, plus Uruguay. In early 2014 they relocated to Manchester, UK, to continue their career and rapidly played lives shows in cities like Manchester, Leicester, Newcastle and Sheffield. FMD open up the Dean Hocking Stage on Sunday.
The majesty and madness of TWISTED ILLUSION is hard to vocalise; a band with furious fire-bearing prog rock influences from Rush and Dream Theater, with technical prowess and a heart of fist-pumping hard rock. Manchester-based TWISTED ILLUSION will be the opening band on the Saturday line-up at SOS.
Metallers REVERTED will be playing the Metal Nation Radio Acoustic Stage on Friday night. This band is London-based, formed in 2010 and released a debut album “Sputter The Worms“. They’ve supported both Evile and Fozzy in recent times, fast-building a great reputation for in-your-face metal akin to Metallica. The band brings a gritty edge to our Friday night line-up on acoustic.
SOS is presented by independent record label Rocksector Records and 2015 will be the 8th such event. Previous headliners include I AM I, GUN, Black Spiders, Heavens Basement, Absolva and Beholder.
In 2015, the event takes place on 17th – 19th July, and tickets which are already on-sale, represent outstanding value once again at £15 for a weekend, £10 for Saturday or Sunday single day tickets. Friday night is charged separately at £5 or for weekend ticket purchasers it’s included in the price.
