Bloodstock have announced another four bands for their 2018 metal weekender which include crossover thrash legends Suicidal Tendencies and classic rock luminaries Mr. Big.
Joining Friday’s main stage bill are Suicidal Tendencies, who play Bloodstock for the first time in their storied 38-year career. The revered band’s twelfth studio album, ‘World Gone Mad’ landed last year, featuring ex-Slayer drum icon, Dave Lombardo at the kit.
Also landing a debut slot on the bill is the Duke of Spook, Wednesday 13. Channelling shades of two previous BOA headliners, Alice Cooper and Rob Zombie, Wednesday and his band are set to bring some schlocky horror fun to Friday’s main stage.
Florida symphonic/power metallers Kamelot join Friday’s main stage line up. The Tampa-based band are hard at work on the follow-up to their 2015 album, ‘Haven’.

Earlier this summer, Frontiers Music released Mr. Big’s ninth studio album ‘Defying Gravity’ which saw the acclaimed musicians reunited with producer Kevin Elson for the first time in 21 years.
