Bring Me The Horizon and Billy Talent to play with Korn at Aerodrome Festival!
The third edition of the Aerodrome Festival will take place at the PVA EXPO Letňany in Prague on 15 June. Besides American rockers Korn, whose participation was already announced, the festival confirms the other two bands that are hugely popular in Czech Republic – punk rockers Billy Talent hailing from Canada, and one of today’s most successful rock bands, Bring Me The Horizon from Great Britain.
Billy Talent, who debuted in 2003 with their eponymous album, are seen by many as the punk-rock voice of their generation. With millions of records sold in Canada, and nearly three million recordings purchased by listeners around the world, the band have earned multi-platinum sales status for their albums Billy Talent I, II and III, and gone certified platinum of their latest album, Dead Silence (2012), which was followed by a greatest hits album in 2014 simply titled Hits.
Over their career, Billy Talent have won seven prizes coming from 20 nominations for Juno Awards, and 10 prizes coming from 32 nominations at the MuchMusic Video Awards – making them the most nominated band in that contest’s history.
Their great popularity among the Czech fans was evident by the packed show at the Incheba Arena in 2008 as well as their sold out concert at Lucerna Grand Hall four years later. With the advent of the New Year, the band have returned to the recording studio, where Billy Talent are preparing material for a new album set for release by this summer.
Only a few groups are making waves on global rock levels more than the British band Bring Me The Horizon and their album That’s The Spirit, which is on track to be among the best and most commercially successful albums of 2015.
Throughout their 12-year history, during which they have recorded five albums by now, Bring Me The Horizon gradually shifted from their deathcore roots on the club scene to modern rock sound that has dominated mainstream radio and sales charts on both sides of the Atlantic. They have sold out London’s famous Wembley Arena and performed at the most prestigious music events across the continents – from Australia’s Soundwave Festival to Rock Am Ring in Germany following the legendary Warped Tour in America.
Still, Bring Me the Horizon are not resting on their laurels. Even at the height of their career, they are taking on new challenges and projects like a charity concert in London to support young people fighting cancer, which will take place at the famous Royal Albert Hall this coming April – for which the band are rehearsing performance with a symphony orchestra.
Aerodrome Festival tickets are available through Ticketportal as of today for 1490 Czech crowns.
