Dillinger Escape Plan Announced For Damnation Festival

Mathcore pioneers The Dillinger Escape Plan are the second band to be announced for this year's Damnation Festival. The frenetic five-piece will bring their devastating live performance to Leeds University Union, on Saturday, November 6, 2010. The Dillinger Escape Plan are the second name to be confirmed for the sixth installment of the UK's premiere metal event with British metallers Earthtone9 announced last week.

Festival director Gavin McInally said: "With their blistering, uncompromising live performance it's hard to think of many bands more suited to take the stage at Damnation Festival than The Dillinger Escape Plan.

"It's often said that bands are going to tear apart a stage but with The Dillinger Escape Plan it's rarely a figure of speech. Their set at Damnation is sure to be explosive."

Damnation Festival returns this year for its sixth installment, promising to deliver the finest chapter in its proud reign as the UK's premiere metal event.

Against all odds, the country's most cutting-edge metal festival has continued to support emerging, home-grown talent while attracting the finest extreme bands from across the globe and was voted UK's best metal event in 2008 by Terrorizer readers.

And with the dedicated support of thousands of forward thinking fans, not satisfied with the watered-down, ticket sales focused bills being hosted across the UK, Leeds University Union will once again host the most vital day on the metal calendar on Saturday, November 6, 2010.
