Soundwave leaks two bands for 2013 lineup

We’ve had plenty of hints and teasing clues for Soundwave 2013 from festival’s boss and it was inevitable that AJ Maddah would start to leak a few confirmations as well.

Over the weekend Maddah was been busy checking out bands at Germany’s Rock Am Ring festival and also found time to made a pair of confirmation announcements adding Welsh post-hardcore crew The Blackout and sludge metal band Kingdom of Sorrow to the lineup for Soundwave 2013.

The lineup of Kingdom of Sorrow features both Kirk Windstein of Crowbar and Down, and Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed and the booking could bode well for the appearance of Down on the lineup. Maddah mentioned back in May that he was “definitely inviting” Down to play.

Other acts playing at Rock Am Ring (and hopefully/possibly on Soundwave touring’s booking sheet) include Anthrax, Lamb of God, Metallica, Motörhead, The Offspring, Opeth, Skrillex, Soundgarden, Tenacious D, Trivium, and Linkin Park.

These confirmations for Soundwave 2013 follow the earlier announcement that Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes would be bringing his ‘other’ band Six Feet Under to the festival.
