In case you missed the news earlier this week, we’re teaming up with Songkick Detour to try to bring some of the best bands in the world to London. Some of them have split up (but occasionally threaten to get back together), some of them have reformed but just not made the trip over to the UK yet, and some of them have never been to these shores. This week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist will hopefully remind you why you need to pledge to see these bands.
We’ve already had enough pledges for American Nightmare to get the ball rolling insofar that a promoter has already been found for the show – but the more pledges our picks receive, the better the chances we’ll be able to get these bands over. Want details of how to get involved? We’ve written this handy blog post for you. Our picks are the aforementioned American Nightmare, SikTh, Botch, Old Man Gloom, Blood Brothers, Muck, Primitive Weapons, Super Snake, All Pigs Must Die and I Am Heresy. Want to get pledging ASAFP? Get thee to the Thrash Hits Songkick Detour page then!
Spotify is available to most of Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and a load of other countries for free – though obviously you’re better off shelling out either £5 or £10 a month for one of Spotify’s premium packages, as then you can listen to our Slaylists without having them interrupted by adverts. For our readers in countries not currently serviced by Spotify….go put on a Slayer album and listen to that instead. Don’t even try to tell us you don’t own at least one Slayer album. Don’t be that guy.
