As a performer, this festival has always been a privilege to be a part of, offering something unique to both audiences and artists, and always imbued with an unusual degree of kindness, generosity and warmth by the fans and the festival team. I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to play our Watching from a Distance album, if for just this once in the UK, at Damnation.” DYING FETUS‘ John Gallagher adds, “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!”
