Iron Fist On The Road At Download

Another summer of festivals has gone by and we’ve just about got rid of the mud from our boots (but not quite). We’re looking back with rose tinted glasses at the overpriced burgers, back packs of beer and questionably constructed tents, it’s left us with festival fever and we cannot wait to do it all again next year. Where else would you wade across two fields of knee-deep mud, hand in hand with a friend, following the sweet sound of Marilyn Manson’s voice? Download Festival, that’s where!

We hung out with some rad bands in our backstage suite and asked them a couple of questions for your entertainment. The beers were flowing and the blow-up couch began to serve as a bouncy castle, where we spoke to the likes of Hollywood Undead, 36 Crazy Fists, Crown The Empire and so many more awesome bands. Watch the video below for a taste of what we got up to and what to expect next year!

Black Veil Brides stopped by for a chat before they killed it on the Zippo Encore stage to a hefty crowd. We also had the likes of Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil pay us as a visit and she didn’t leave empty handed, Cristina LOVED the Slayer Fringe Muscle Tank and had to pinch it!

We had such an awesome time at Download and loved seeing all of your lovely faces in the main arena. We’ll be coming to party again next year, but in the meantime lets listen to IOWA and drink Strongbow in unison.
