Bullet For My Valentine, Killswitch Engage, Rise Against and more to play Nova Rock festival 2021!
The biggest Austrian rock festival, Nova Rock, expanding its 2021 line up and unveils Bullet For My Valentine, Killswitch Engage, Rise Against and 12 other bands, bringing another unparalleled party to the scene.
Bullet For My Valentine established themselves as one of the biggest British metal acts in music history. They have released 6 full-lengths, selling millions of albums worldwide and being crowned Best British Band at the Kerrang! Awards three years in a row. It’s not just the press and fans that have afforded them such faith: even the heroes like Iron Maiden and Metallica, that inspired them in the first place, have personally selected Bullet For My Valentine to hit the road and share the stage with them. The band is currently working on a new album, supposed to be the heaviest Bullet stuff you’ve ever heard, according to singer/guitarist Matt Tuck.
Formed in Westfield, Massachusetts, in 1999, Killswitch Engage makes trend-resistant, timeless heavy music that feeds the soul, touches the heart, and strengthens the mind. Their anthems and live staples like My Last Serenade, My Curse and In Due Time, have the staying power that appeals to all generations of rock and metal fans worldwide, along with a message that serves to unite, enlighten, and entertain.
Killswitch Engage’s latest studio release Atonement (2019), possesses a stack of new anthems certain to set the heavy music world ablaze once more. The album’s lead track Unleashed was nominated for the Grammy Music Award for Best Metal Performance, making it the third Grammy nomination for the band.
US four-piece Rise Against are known for its explosive live shows and its outspoken, socially-conscious lyrics that speak to the mood of our times: the environment, economic injustice, forced displacement, political corruption, voter registration, animal rights, and interpersonal relationships, all delivered with big, chunky riffs and melodic post-grunge hooks.
The band has amassed five Top 10 albums on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and six Top 10 singles on its Hot 100 chart. Their gold-certified single Savior alone, has accumulated nearly half-a-billion streams. In 2019 Rise Against released the sprawling all-vinyl retrospective Career Vinyl Book, with the single Broken Dreams, Inc., their first new song in three years.
