Chris Broderick comments: “Act Of Defiance is extremely excited to be going to the UK and Europe for the first time on our new CD Old Scars, New Wounds. What an honor it is to play a festival like Bloodstock that represents what metal music is all about, we are going to have a killer time for sure and hope to see you there”!

And Shawn Drover: “FINALLY!!!! Act Of Defiance will be headed over to the U.K. this July/August and we could not be happier to do so!!!! We look forward to seeing you all there for an evening of 100% pure HEAVY METAL!!!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
