Downloading At Donington
Posted on February 12, 2008We're happy to report that Murderdolls and Stone Sour will be performing at the forthcoming Download Festival at Castle Donington on May 31 (Murderdolls) & June 1 (Stone Sour) - headlined by Iron Maiden and Limp Bizkit.
What was the reaction at being added to the bill? We caught up with Joey Jordison, who had the following to say:
"I have just received word that the Murderdolls have been chosen to play at Donington with Iron Maiden this summer. I am blown away and speechless... I just dug out 'Killers' in celebration of such an honour. Being that this is the first Iron Maiden album I ever bought with my allowance - and still one of my favourites - I can't put into words how much I am proud to be a part of this. Anyway, here's to Iron Maiden... Cheers!"
Also appearing will be Audioslave, Deftones, Marilyn Manson, Disturbed, Zwan, Less Than Jake, InMe, (hed) Planet Earth, and Ministry over the 2 days and there are still more bands to be added!
