DEFECTS // BLOODSTOCK 2022 // New UK Modern Metal Band
“DEFECTS is a new collaboration of seasoned young musicians, who have spent the last 10 years collectively touring the world under different projects. Having collectively released multiple albums worldwide and spending years on the road alongside acts such as Iron Maiden, Bring Me The Horizon, Shinedown, Disturbed and Bullet For My Valentine, they have come together to deliver an offering of new sound and energy which is truly special. Breathing fresh life into modern Heavy Metal, their songs feature viciously executed riffs with relentless earth shaking grooves, all intertwined with visceral, melodic choruses that are drenched in soul and heartache.”
Fresh off their blistering performance at last weekend’s BLOODSTOCK Festival, UK Metal Newcomers DEFECTS have announced a headline tour of the UK. Kicking off in Leeds on October 11th, DEFECTS bring special guests RXPTRS on the eight date tour.
“After so long of being absent from the music scene it feels great to put on our own headline shows. The last 8 months has been crazy, now we want to make it even more special. The set is packed with new songs and vibes that will make you want to mosh. Can’t wait to see you out there.”
