  STAMPEDE REVEAL LINE-UP CHANGE AND HEADLINE MIDLANDS CHARITY EVENT ON MARCH 30th
8th March 2012

stampede



Stampede have announced that they are going back to basics as a four piece line-up with a special headline appearance at a Hard Rock Big Noise Transmission – a charity event in Wolverhampton on 30th March.

The band's line up henceforth will consist of original songwriting duo Reuben Archer (vocals) and Laurence Archer (guitar) and original bassist Colin Bond. New drummer Tim Price, who has previously drummed for Gary Moore, Dr Feelgood, Eddie Martin amongst others, will complete the ensemble.

They are due to unveil the new formation at their first show of 2012 – where they will be headlining an official launch night event at Wolverhampton's new Numa Bar Jagged Rock Lounge venue, from which proceeds will go to The Compton Hospice, a local charity which supports patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

Stampede had a busy 2011 releasing 'A Sudden Impulse', their first studio album since 1983s cult classic 'Hurricane Town', and completing a UK tour with Y&T, dates with Anvil and Praying Mantis as well as an appearance at Hard Rock Hell V, with a slightly amended lineup which saw the arrival of second guitarist Chris Clowsley and Stevie Graystone on drums replacing original stickman Eddie Parsons.

Reuben comments: "We had a fantastic year and a lot of fun recording A Sudden Impulse despite some logistical hiccups for Laurence along the way. Regardless we were all so pleased with the finished result and the fantastic response to both the album and our live shows.

"However the original members of the band feel strongly that the next album should be recorded as near to the original line up as possible to really capture the essence of the Stampede sound. The desire is now to get back to our roots, and with Tim we have found the link to make it work in the absence of Eddie. We are very excited about it all and can't wait to showcase Tim in Wolverhampton on 30th March, where we are delighted to have been asked to play for such a worthy cause!”

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
