Grindcore Supergroup Lock Up to Headline Terrorizer Stage at Damnation Festival 2009
Grindcore supergroup LOCK UP will headline this year’s Terrorizer Stage in what will be their only show of 2009 and likely the band’s last ever live appearance.
The almost mythical extreme metal behemoth – which will feature AT THE GATES frontman Tomas Lindberg, Anton Resisenegger of PENTAGRAM on guitar, NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury and ex-DIMMU BORGIR drummer Nick Barker – will perform live in the UK for the first time in almost ten years.
Shane Embury revealed the one-off show is set to be the last time they ever take the stage together. He said:
“LOCK UP has not played the UK since the summer of 2000 when we did a small tour with Poland’s Decapitated – in fact the band has only ever done around 15 shows since we formed ten years ago. We have had so many requests over the years from fans to play again that we thought ‘let’s get off our arses and do this one last time’. So our appearance at this years Damnation Festival will be a total “7 Churches on vinyl or fuck off!” exclusive show.”
Damnation Festival will take place at Leeds University Union, on Saturday, October 24.
The line-up so far is:
Lock Up, Therapy?, Destruction, Electric Wizard, Jesu, Rotting Christ, This Will Destroy You, Akercocke, A Storm of Light, Mistress, Negura Bunget, Minsk, Extreme Noise Terror, Manatees, Gates of Slumber, And So I Watch You From Afar, Charger, Stand-Up Guy and Rinoa with more bands to be announced.
