Bloodstock Festival Announces GraViL Plus Band Unleash New Music Video 'Detonate'



London Metallers GraViL Added To Bloodstock Festival Line-up & They Release New Video 'Detonate'!


The latest announcement by Bloodstock Open Air this past Tuesday sees the London melodeath group GRAVIL confirmed for the prestigious Sophie Lancaster stage on Sunday 14th August. This new addition to the bill once again demonstrates Bloodstock's commitment to championing new bands in the metal community.

"We are honoured to be a part of Bloodstock Open Air 2017" says GraViL vocalist Grant Stacey. "Each year this spiritual home of heavy metal somehow betters the year before. We have each spent a lot of time on the hallowed ground of Catton Park, witnessing stunning new bands, the earth shattering veterans of the main stage and embracing the metal music community that we have come to call our family. Now we are privileged to grace the SOPHIE stage, whose very name represents the strength and pride of our brotherhood. See you there!"

2017 has seen a resurgence for GraViL. Their sophomore album 'No More Forgiveness' was released in May and has being going down a storm with media and the band's fanbase. With various premieres by the likes of Metal Hammer, Scuzz TV, Terrorizer and more, GraViL have now unleashed the music video for elite track 'Detonate'.

This new video clip shows the group in a high-octane performance which also features three versions of the mysterious woman, 'Obliti'... the present broken self, a lost dream of grandeur and the self-loathing dark entity which destroyed it.

"'Detonate' is a personal song drawn from a negative situation", explains Stacey, "The video captures the lyrics perfectly... it tackles loss, taking charge and using the anger, rage and sadness to triumph over the overwhelming paint that the loss entails... hence detonating."

Whilst the song and video reflect important issues in our society, it didn't stop the band from taking time out to have fun on set and inflict 'crabcore' on non-believers.

"On the way to the video shoot we discussed how low our guitarists get to the floor during live shows. Sparx (bass) mentioned it was called crabcore and a confused Charlie (Webster, guitar) refused point blank to believe there was such a thing. Like a red rag to a bull this spurred us onto mischief, leading to the band shouting "crab it" during the performance sections and band members having to get as low as physically possible to the floor without taking the soles of their feet off the ground."

The Crobar - Famous London Rock Bar Launches Crowdfunder
