After Earache Records tremendous first year at Glastonbury in 2017, they return to Shangri-La this year with a killer lineup on the Scum Stage. Idles, The Damned, Black Futures, Gojira and Vodun will be joined by Wales’ Venom Prison, who will perform twice at the festival.
Regarding the announcement, Venom Prison commented, “We are incredibly honoured to announce our debut performance at Glastonbury Festival 2019. For a band to play at a festival that wouldn’t normally have music or people like us in attendance for that matter to be this welcoming is amazing to see. We’d like to pay special thanks to the team at Earache for firstly having the audacity of swindling a stage out of Glastonbury in the first place but also inviting us to play, you all rule. The grind is real. See you in the fields.”
The announcement follows a full-on start to 2019 which saw the release of Venom Prison's critically acclaimed second album, Samsara. The band will also head out on tour this month supporting Fit For An Autopsy.
