Death metal heavyweights Dying Fetus and reformed British doom band Warning are among the first bands to be announced for this year’s Damnation Festival, which takes place at Leeds University Union on Saturday 4 November.
Dying Fetus are scheduled to release their as-yet-untitled eighth studio album this coming summer. Frontman John Gallagher said: “We are ready to bring some brutality to Damnation Festival this year with some songs off our new album, along with the classics. See you in the pit!”
Post-rock duo Nordic Giants and American death metallers Gatecreeper - who will be making their debut UK appearance - also join the Damnation bill. Twenty-three more bands across four stages are still to be announced.
