The organizers of the Bloodstock 2014 festival are thrilled to announce the addition of four more metal bands to the main stage bill, issuing the following statement:

"The very mighty New Orleans sludge metal crew, Crowbar make a return to Catton Park in 2014 for a UK festival exclusive. Led by riff lord, Kirk Windstein, who recently stepped down from his longtime tenure with Bloodstock headliners Down to concentrate energies full time on his own band Crowbar, Kirk and the boys are hard at work on a brand new album set for a 2014 release. Kirk loves Bloodstock and is looking forward to a return visit, enthusing, 'Crowbar can’t wait to bring our NOLA doom back to Bloodstock in 2014! It’s our 25th anniversary, so expect a few surprises in our set. New record, new bassist and a whole new Crowbar attitude!'

"Florida death metal pioneers Obituary are also set to lay waste to Bloodstock’s main stage. The band have been working hard on their ninth studio record and accompanying documentary. This will be their first new music since 2009’s ‘Darkest Day’ and is set for independent release next year in the wake of a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign (which saw the guys raise more than 6 times their original target). When not making music, the band are involved with drummer Donald Tardy’s feline welfare programme, Metal Meowlisha, and organise fund-raising initiatives such as ‘Headbanger’s Furball.'

"Finland’s Children of Bodom is set to play their only UK show of 2014 on Bloodstock’s Ronnie James Dio main stage. The band released their eighth studio album, ‘Halo of Blood’ in June of this year and you can check out the video for lead single, ‘Transference’ here.

"Bloodstock also favours hard-working bands from the UK, and are excited to welcome back the hugely popular Evil Scarecrow; this time to an opening slot on Saturday’s main stage! Having packed out the Sophie tent last year, the Nottingham band are more than thrilled at the prospect. The band are hard at work on their new album which is planned for a 2014 release, and hop over and check out the Pledge Campaign for their 2013 Bloodstock DVD here. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation."
