Despite all the rumours about The Darkness being set to reunite to be second on the bill to Def Leppard at Download Festival 2011, festival booker Andy Copping has said that they won’t be. We may have been totally right about Leppard headlining but we still live in hope.

It’s interesting that when the same rumours circulated last summer, Justin Hawkins popped his head out to tell everyone it wasn’t true. He hasn’t done that this year. Hmmm. We still want The Darkness to return.

Who do you want to see headline the summer festivals in 2011?

November 18th, 2010

With Andy Copping Twittering about having “two Download headliners locked in” and Sonisphere’s people flyering at the Deftones gig in Brixton last night, the UK summer festival season of 2011 is well and truly under way.

Slayer
No Slayer, no thrash. Right? Following their four classic ’80s albums, Slayer’s four ’90s albums received a varied reception as the band branched out in style. During this last decade, Slayer have succeeded in cementing their classic status thanks mainly to God Hates Us All and the return-to-form Christ Illusion. Dozens of metal’s biggest names have toured with Slayer since the turn of the century including In Flames, Children of Bodom, Biohazard, Cradle of Filth, Lamb of God, Marilyn Manson and Amon Amarth.

July 18th, 2008

This autumn, the UK’s bigger clubs will be quaking to their foundations thanks to the latest instalment of the Unholy Alliance tour, headlined by Slayer and featuring Trivium, Mastodon and Amon Amarth on the bill.

Previous jaunts included Slipknot and In Flames and received much acclaim, but there’s a sneaking feeling among Slayer’s rabid fanbase that perhaps some space on the bill could have been allocated to newer, more extreme bands this time around. Thrash Hits .com put this to Tom Araya this week, as well as asking him to clarify his band’s future.
