Hear ye! Hear ye! Here are the final names for GROEZROCK 2015…
Let’s face it. It’s been 5 years since THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES came to visit us. That’s way too long. So we decided to give the ska punk legends a call and knocked on wood. The impression that we got is that they’re f*cking stoked to come back!
Back in 2008 a cool FAT WRECK band from Philly played early in the afternoon. The band never really broke up. It just got real quiet after their “Distractions” EP from 2009. Singer DAVE HAUSE however made a name for himself as a solo artist and played the Acoustic Stage twice. Now, we’re far from tired of his solo work, but we thought it would be amazing if Dave and his buddies would play some tunes together for the first time since quite a while. So yes, rumors are true. THE LOVED ONES are coming to Groezrock 2015! And we are stoked beyond belief.
If these names did not floor you, be prepared to get beat down by Belgium/Germany’s NASTY. These guys just finished the Taste Of Anarchy tour so they are all warmed up and ready to go. You will get your ass handed to you as they unleash hell at Groezrock.
BRUTUS is a new Belgian trio that has been making quite a name for themselves the last year with a blistering mix of post rock and punk. Yes, having a really good female drummer/singer might seem something of a gimmick. But this trio more than deserves a spot at Groezrock after a couple of awesome 7-inches and about a gajillion awesome live shows.
That’s it folks… if you haven’t bought your tickets yet, we suggest you do so now. The VIP tickets are already gone and the combi tickets are going fast as well. Don't wait that long!!!
We will also be announcing the names for Groezrock’s pre-Fest at the irritatingly slow pace of one name per week. Last week we already told you that We'rewolves will be playing as part of the Lokale Helden (Local Heroes) initiative by Poppunt but you will have to wait a couple more days to find out all about the next name.
Excited? Good. Annoyed? Even better.
