Speaking on the confirmation, Moonsorrow stated: "We are truly excited to take part in Bloodstock Festival 2012. It's been way too long since we played on the British soil in 2008 and we know that lately there has been a huge demand for Moonsorrow to play in the UK.

Ex-DragonForce vocalist ZP Theart announced his return with new band I AM I. The band will release its debut LP "Event Horizon" on May 26, 2012, exclusively on USB stick through the official website, and make its live debut on May 27, 2012 at O2 Academy 2 in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
In addition to Theart, the band features drummer Paul Clark (Manowar deputy drummer on 2011 European tour), guitarist Jacob Ziemba and Neil Salmon on bass. In late April, the band will post a promo video for the track "Silent Genocide" as a taster.
"Event Horizon" will mark the first ever Heavy Metal album to be released solely on USB. According to the band "[a]s the major record labels are almost certainly going to cease production of compact discs by the end of 2012, I AM I are one step ahead of the game by releasing this groundbreaking album in a groundbreaking format."
Tickets for the 27th May debut show at Birmingham's O2 are limited to 600 and will also be available from the Official I AM I site next week. 600 special commemorative t-shirts will be produced for the gig and are an exclusive free gift for fans who buy tickets. The shirts will be numbered and will correspond with the ticket number and are sure to become collector's items.
Theart commented on the new album: "It's an album of message. It's about past meeting future and everything in between. It's about warnings for the current generation not to go down the same road in the future as we are doing now as that will surely secure our demise. To see and not to perceive, to hear and not to listen, is the downfall of all...
"It's a new age of enlightenment and there's a lot of messages in the songs that will hopefully kickstart a few people who are slow on the uptake.
"My whole career has been leading up to this point and I've never been more proud of anything in my life and this album will definitely live up to it's name." More...
