Yes boys and girls, it's that time of year again when we attempt to come up with a clever new way to announce that we will be spending part of our summer in Europe playing festivals... you know how we need to have a European fix every summer! And our first announcement brings us to the most hallowed of rock grounds, Donington Park, for our return to the Download Festival. The three day festival runs from June 8-10 and we take the stage right smack in the middle of it on Saturday, June 9, 2012.
This year's European trek has a twist... to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Download Festival, the dudes who run it asked us how we felt about playing 'The Black Album' in its entirety and we thought "hold on, that could be really cool since it is technically the tail-end of the 20th anniversary of the release (August '91)." So come hang with us for the 2012 version of our European Summer Vacation featuring 'The Black Album,' with the exclusive stop in the UK on June 9.
