Over 270 applications were received for the Headliner’s Choice competition, which puts the decision this year in the hands of SikTh and Deaf Havana. Each headliner chose the band that personally blew them away and the results are in…

What’s more, the remaining acts who were not chosen will have a further opportunity to get on stage at the festival during the Public Choice vote. They will go head to head to win the support of social media users to compete for the last remaining festival slot.

Regrettably Dead Harts have had to pull out of Breakout Festival since their announcement, but a replacement will be announced shortly. Festival Director Stefan Curzon-Price said: “We are sad to hear that Dead Harts will be unable to join us at Breakout, but the good news is we’ve already secured a real crowd favourite to fill their space on the line-up.”

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…

Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…
