Dying Fetus, Warning & More Announced For Damnation Festival 2017

By on 27 March 2017

The mighty Dying Fetus and recently reunited doom legends Warning have just been announced for this year’s Damnation Festival, alongside post-rock duo Nordic Giants and US death metallers Gatecreeper.

Warning will be playing their classic ‘Watching From A Distance’ LP in full for the only time in the UK. Vocalist/guitarist Patrick Walker had this to say about the news:

“I’m happy to be able to announce that we’ll be performing a sole UK-exclusive date at Damnation Festival. Following the regrouping of the band this year, I was determined to play one show in England and I am particularly delighted to be able to bring Warning to Leeds in November. As a performer, this festival has always been a privilege to be a part of, offering something unique to both audiences and artists, and always imbued with an unusual degree of kindness, generosity and warmth by the fans and the festival team. I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to play our ‘Watching From A Distance’ album, if for just this once in the UK, at Damnation.”

Meanwhile, Dying Fetus frontman John Gallagher seemed similarly enthused:

“We are ready to bring some brutality to Damnation Festival this year with some songs off our new album, along with the classics. See you in the pit!”

The festival will also mark the first ever UK performance for Gatecreeper, who seem pretty chuffed too:

“We are excited to come over to the UK and very fortunate to have our debut at Damnation Festival. People having been begging us to come over and we can’t think of a better first appearance than at Damnation Festival.”

There are still another 23 bands to be added across four stages, so watch this space for further news.

Damnation Festival is due to take place on November 4th at Leeds University Union. Tickets are priced at £40 for the day, and are available from Damnation’s site and Leeds Tickets.
