Blood Rock Fest 2015 update
With only two weeks to go, in a Blood Rock Fest first, no one has pulled out at the last minute (yet…), however there’s new additions & helping another deserving cause!
Joining the already massive lineup featuring King Parrot, Blazin’ Entrails, Puck, Chainsaw Hookers plus many more are local heavy metal outfit Tempest Rising who have been touring all over the world since their formation in 2012 and OHM Rune, a two piece Stoner/Doom/Metal band playing their 1st ever show!!
Every year Blood Rock Fest make a donation to charity. This year we will be donating to beyondblue with proceeds from raffle tickets and 10% of merch sales going to them. Prizes include donations from our sponsors Monster Management, Joynt Venture, 78 Records and Matchless Music and developmentfrom bands playing on the day!!
In another exciting delvelopment, Neigbourhood Brew have joined forces with BRF and The Rosemount Hotel and we now have a Blood Rock Fest exclusive beer special available only in 459 and the main room with part proceeds going to beyondblue.
In Their own words….
“So Neighbourhood Brew is about rad craft beer, but also about supporting our local artists through our events. We hold art shows with the launch of our new brews and create apparel with the designs of our core group of artists. We’re especially proud to be donating part-proceeds from the sale of NBHD to Beyond Blue, as we’ve either been through depression ourselves or had ones close to us go through it.”
And finally, As well as headlining Blood Rock Fest, King Parrot will also be playing a sideshow at Prince of Wales Hotel in Bunbury the night before alongside Chainsaw Hookers, Ganbaru and Death Dependent.
Once again BLOOD ROCK FEST will set up camp at the Rosemount Hotel, North Perth on the 31 October for the 8th installment of the notorious punk/hardcore/metal extravaganza. Featuring over 20 bands playing throughout the day between 2 stages, with a killer line-up that you will not want to miss.
This year’s Halloween edition will be headlined by none other than King Parrot. Fresh off of their ‘Dead Set Regional Rampage Tour’, the brutal 5 piece will show you why Phil Anselmo (Pantera/Down) rates the band so highly!
If that’s not enough, we also have Melbourne heavyweights WOLFPACK, who have so far raised over $17K for animal welfare charities all over Victoria. COFFIN WOLF will be fresh of their month long South East Asia tour, BRF alumni, GANBARU, who played the 2013 edition, will be back with a brand new album. Rounding out the East Coast bands is Acoustic Folk Punker Mitch Primer playing his first show out of his home state Adelaide.
