On the second stage this year:
High profile tours with bands like Architects and Your Demise, a handful of festival appearances, plus the release of their second studio album ‘Old Lies for Young Lives’ in April 2013, has seen Heights’ profile hit the roof. And they’re hitting ours in September.
‘Exciting’, ‘fresh’ and ‘different’ aren’t words used to describe many new bands nowadays, but you can certainly apply them all to djent rap metallers Hacktivist. We’re stoked to have them at Butserfest.
Want some music with frenzied pace, attitude and fire? Liverpool’s, Kerrang! Award nominated, alternative math quintet Marmozets will deliver it by the shedload. Strap yourself in!
Subtle punk with slivers of more punk, topped with shavings of punk, and garnished with a touch of punk, all wrapped up in the sounds of the sea lapping Brighton’s shores. Okay, the last bit was a tiny fib. Welcome Gnarwolves to our lineup. They’re punk, yeah?
Victory Records’ recently acquired Continents do Welsh hardcore at its best. There’s no messing around with these fellas. Check out their latest video for Idle Hands.
Guildford’s done some good things in its time, like Palm Reader. Frantic, in your face and loud, they’re going to make you forget where you left your head. It’s the truth, honest!
Having wowed on the main stage two years ago Southampton’s The Valiant return to Butserfest. Blending splendid melodies with crushing choruses, it’s straight up metalcore for the metalcore masses. Take a look at their video for ‘Home of the Grave’.
Brussels, Belgium has a secret, and it’s in the shape of Now, Voyager. A recent European tour with Bury Tomorrow as well as a couple of stints in the UK has put them in good stead for more British invasions. The time is now.
Who needs two vocalists when one pretty lady can do the job of both? Well, that’s what Birmingham’s Aurora think, and who are we to argue eh? Take a look and judge for yourself.
With many more bands to be added to the festival lineup Butserfest 2013 is shaping up to be an amazing year of music and activities.
Tickets are on sale now for £20 (plus online booking fee of £1.75). Go to the tickets page.
