Reunited British industrial metal pioneers GODFLESH have been confirmed as one of the headlining acts for the 2010 edition of Supersonic Festival.
GODFLESH will be returning to their roots for the highly acclaimed Supersonic Festival, which is held in the band’s hometown of Birmingham, England. This special headlining appearance will be GODFLESH’s first UK show in over ten years.
GODFLESH founding member JUSTIN BROADRICK comments:
“We cannot even recall specifically the first Birmingham Godflesh show. Oddly, we think it was supporting Suicide in 1988, just after the release of our first Mini LP on Swordfish, the record label of Birmingham’s best record shop. So it’s only natural that the first Godflesh UK show in its original form in over 10 years, comes home to its birthplace, and for whom better than Supersonic, the organisation responsible for keeping Birmingham on the map with underground music, be it metal or otherwise. It is with great pleasure that Godflesh returns to its roots.”
Supersonic Festival takes place from the 22nd to the 24th October, 2010 at the Custard Factory in Birmingham.
Supersonic Festival is organised by Capsule, which also runs ‘Home of Metal’, a project celebrating heavy metal music from the West Midlands, including such legendary bands as BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST, GODFLESH and NAPALM DEATH.
