Les-Fest Organiser Dave Ritchie commented "We are absolutely delighted to add Savage Messiah to this years event. We try to pick bands that we believe can bring a captivating performance to the stage and genuinely please people and if you like your Metal these guys will not disappoint, with a new album imminent, expect something special, from worthy headliners"
They will be joined on the Saturday by House of X - a new name perhaps to many but a band with an impeccable history, consisting of Danny Peyronel who featured on UFO's 'No Heavy Petting' album plus guitarist Laurence Archer formerly of Phil Lynott's Grand Slam who later joined UFO for the 'High Stakes And Dangerous Men' album along with drummer Clive Edwards. On bass is Rocky Newton best known for his time with McAuley Schenker Group.
"As musicians they may all have that excellent pedigree, but having heard their forthcoming album of all new tunes these guys are much more than a covers or tribute act. The new material is excellent, but of course what better way to close of the Saturday evening than with some UFO classics sprinkled within the set too".
They will be joined over the weekend by Glasgow Progressive Metal band Epsilon, new British Metallers Stormbringer, whose album, "MMXIII" is garnering critical acclaim, plus highly regarded Hard Rockers Crash Mansion and the "best kept secret in Rock N' Roll", Curran who are guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
As Dave says, "This continues our something for everyone policy with a broad range of rock and Metal bands now confirmed from Death Metal right through to Classic Rock making Les-Fest 3 a must do music festival in the Summer of 2014"
