BOSSK are the latest act to be confirmed for Damnation Festival 2016!
Following yesterday’s confirmation that AKERCOCKE would be playing at this year’s edition of Damnation Festival, the event’s organisers have announced that British avant-garde post-metal act BOSSK will also be appearing.
The band are set to play their EP .1 in full, alongside first airings of material from their debut full-length album Audio Noir, which was released last month.
A statement from the band reads:
“It’s crazy to us that our band has reached its 10 year anniversary. We have talked about doing the first record in full for sometime now, to celebrate its release way back in 2006 and what better place to do it than at
Damnation Festival? We played our first show in Leeds at the Fenton in 2005, and we have always had a very strong alliance with the city. After our return in 2012 we played Damnation and it was a very big factor in us wanting to continue making music. Now with the new album out it is time to return to the Damnation stage. We will be playing the first record .1 in its full extended form, along with first live plays of tracks from Audio Noir. This is the ONLY time we will play this set. It’s going to be one to remember.”
BOSSK are set to play the Eyesore Merch Stage at the event, which takes place at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 5. For more information, including ticket links, visit the Damnation Festival website www.damnationfestival.co.uk
