Commented singer Eduardo Chacón: “Bloodstock 2012, are you ready? Sight of Emptiness is COMING HOME! Many amazing things have happened to our band since we won the 2007 “Unsigned Competition” and played the Main Stage. We have released one more album and have another one ready for 2012, won two ACAM Grammys (in Costa Rica), played shows in front of 15 000 people, shared stage with MEGADETH and much more. BUT having another opportunity to play Bloodstock has been huge on our want-to-do list. Looking forward to see all our UK friends and together destroy the Sophie Lancaster Stage. – Get ready Europe… We’re coming for you!
Commented guitarist Rafael Castro: “This is the fruit of many years of hard work and we won´t let go not even the slightest chance. We´re ready”.
