LIVE: Download Festival @ Donington Park – Friday (10/06/2011)

Date: June 10th, 2011
Venue: Donington Park, Donington
Website: www.downloadfestival.co.uk
Facebook: www.facebook.com/downloadfest

Note: As only two members of the site were able to attend the festival weekend, we were sadly unable to cover every band performing throughout the day.

It goes without saying that Download Festival is easily one of the pinnacle and most respectable festivals for rock, metal and alternative music in the UK. With years and years of success and acts gracing its grounds, such as AC/DC, Guns N Roses and Slipknot to name just a few of the more famous ones, 2011 is set to keep the festival’s sterling reputation strong and high. On its Friday bill of acts, there’s a range of names both old and new across its four stages, including a return from The Darkness after their indefinite hiatus:

Rating:

Back in their ‘homeland’ the UK for the third time, Asking Alexandria will want to make sure that this short stint of shows are their best to date, and with many critics hot on their tail waiting for the band’s inevitable implosion, they can hardly afford to put in a bad showing on this, the first date of this run of headline shows.

ALBUM: Asking Alexandria – Reckless & Relentless

Release Date: April 5th, 2011
Label: Sumerian
Website: None available
MySpace: www.myspace.com/askingalexandria

Rating:

Love them or hate them, Anglo-American quintet Asking Alexandria are the buzz band of the moment. In the run up to their hotly anticipated sophomore album, there’s been a lot of talk about the band, some good and some not so good, but on ‘Reckless & Relentless’, they aim to silence all of their critics and prove that they are in fact deserving of the status they seem to have achieved.

NEWS: Asking Alexandria ammend upcoming UK tour dates!

Asking Alexandria have altered and ammended dates for their upcoming UK headline tour this April/May. The band have released the following statement about the tour date changes:

“As you are all aware at this point in time, we are in the unfortunate position of having to reschedule a few of our UK tour dates. Please understand that this was not an easy decision for us and has taken a lot of thought and consideration to come to the conclusion that we have eventually reached. The reason for these shows will become clear in the coming weeks as we are unable to make public just now. You, our fans, are the reason for this bands success, your love and support has made this band what it is today, and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for that. We are asking you, and hoping that you will all understand and support us at this time. We have been presented with the most amazing opportunity which we feel could really take this band in the next step of our careers. It is a goal we have had since day one, and again it has been made obtainable due to your support of this band. Rather than just cancel these shows we have re-arranged them to another date, not far from the original date they were scheduled for. Thank you so much for all of your understanding and support in the matter. We really cannot wait to hang out with you all and see you at the shows.

Much love and mutual respect,

Ben Bruce – Asking Alexandria”

APRIL 22 – LONDON, Electric Ballroom (same date as before)
MAY 03 – BIRMINGHAM, Academy 2 (new date – tickets purchased remain valid)
