MISTRESS, the UK’s finest purveyors of noise, will reunite for one last aural assault, exclusively at the 2009 Damnation Festival. The boys from Birmingham will treat fans a final dose their sludgey mix of grind and thrash following their sudden break-up in March last year.
Frontman Dave Hunt quipped, “Well, we saw what happened with Carcass and we thought we’d cash in too! Nah, in reality it’s just that we never had a ‘last gig’ and that left a sense of unfinished business. Our paragraph in the book of heavy metal should have ended with an exclamation mark, not a comma. The Damnation guys suggested a one-off and we thought fuck it, we’ll have our final stand after all. The last grinding hurrah of blood, snot and spleen.”
MISTRESS will join previously announced acts; THERAPY?, ROTTING CHRIST and A STORM OF LIGHT at the three stage event which will take place on Saturday, October 24, 2009 at Leeds University Union.
Northern Irish post-metallers STAND-UP GUY have also been added to the bill, playing the Rock Sound endorsed stage.
