DYING FETUS confirmed for Download Festival 2014, Euro tour with Hypocrisy and Heaven Shall Burn

Posted 11/6/13

DYING FETUS have been confirmed to play the 2014 edition of the Download Festival in the UK. The death metal powerhouse will play alongside headliners Aerosmith, Avenged Sevenfold and Linkin Park at the festival that takes place in June at Donington Park, Derbyshire.


Public pressure for the band to be added to the line up has been mounting since Monday, when in response to Metal Hammer UK's announcement of Avenged Sevenfold as headliners, one disgruntled fan questioned, "Why not Dying Fetus?". A social media whirlwind followed, with #whynotdyingfetustrending on various social platforms.


John Gallagher (Guitar, Vocals) comments: "The people have spoken and now it's time to piss in the mainstream! This started as a joke but has turned into something truly incredible! Never under estimate the power of the internet. Big thanks to all our undying fans for making this happen and for the promoters of Download for having the courage to invite us on the fest! Cheers!"


Download festival promoter Andy Copping comments: "When #whynotdyingfetus started circulating on Monday, it gained too much momentum to ignore, so calling the band and asking them to play at next year’s Download was a no brainer. I’m thrilled to say that they seem as excited about it as we are. ‘Why not DYING FETUS?’ you asked. We say ‘Why the hell not?"
