Unearth Moved Up To Main Stage At Download Festival 2010

This Friday, June 11 at 3 pm UNEARTH will hit the Main Stage at the legendary Download Festival on the Castle Donington grounds alongside AC/DC and Them Crooked Vultures.

"We get to share the same stage as one of our collective all time favourite bands AC/DC as well as rock giants John Paul Jones, Dave Grohl and Josh Homme of Them Crooked Vultures. I would say it is an understatement to just say that is pretty damn cool," said UNEARTH frontman TREVOR PHIPPS. "Being part of that stage with those bands is a huge honour for us and is something we are looking forward to more than words can express."

UNEARTH are joined at Download by Metal Blade labelmates As I Lay Dying and Whitechapel:

Friday June 11, 2010
UNEARTH – Main Stage (Maurice Jones) – on stage 3:00pm
AS I LAY DYING – Third Stage (Pepsi Max) – on stage 6:20pm
JOB FOR A COWBOY – Third Stage (Pepsi Max) – on stage 7:15pm

Sunday June 13, 2010
WHITECHAPEL – Third Stage (Pepsi Max) – on stage 5:15pm
