Sabbat Confirmed For Download Festival 2009

British thrash metal veterans Sabbat has confirmed that they will be performing at this year's Download Festival. A message from guitarist Andy Sneap reads as follows:

"We are pleased to announce that after months of being really annoying and badgering the fuck out of Andy Copping, the man responsible for Download, he finally broke down and added Sabbat to the bill on Sunday (June 14th). We have to be the most local band ever to play at Castle Donington (I'll refer to it as Donington from now on and pretend its still one stage in 1984) having been in attendance most years and even walking to the festival a couple of times. I must say I have been somewhat disappointed in the lack of pigs heads, bottles of piss and turds thrown in carriers bags during the latter years, kids today just don't know how to enjoy a good festival! I personally am looking forward to getting one half of my face sunburnt Richard Dreyfus style and feeling like George Best's left kidney on the 15th. Should be fun!"
