Über Rock Introduces… Bakers Eddy

Now and again, a young band comes along who pique our interest sufficiently to make us want to delve more into their story and give them a little more exposure than a mere single or EP review… So it was that our resident gigaholic recently took a break from travelling the length and breadth of the Über Kingdom to fire up ye olde Überfone to the Antipodes to catch up with pop punk newbies Bakers Eddy, who last month released their latest single and also have just signed to Ivy League/Mushroom Records.

The Über Rockin’ Guide to… Bloodstock 2019 (Part Two)

In metal, you adapt, or you die. The genre has evolved continually since the first howling notes of ‘Black Sabbath’ wailed into the world (and if we’re honest, long before that too) and so with it the scene has had to grow ever more adventurous and expansive. Naturally that means that its festivals too must grow and evolve – so Bloodstock’s move to book Parkway Drive feels both entirely natural and like an enormous gamble on their part. But then, if you don’t play, you don’t win.

Rapidly growing since its first iteration in 2005, Bloodstock has grown to become the UK’s most beloved metal-specific festival, attracting both legends and up-and-coming titans in its quest to put on some of the hottest festival bills in the business. The 2019 edition of the event looks set to push the festival further than it has ever gone before, moving away from more staunch underground/traditional heavy metal acts to encompass massive behemoths from the modern metalcore/hardcore movement.
