The brilliant and brutal Golden Tanks (our Wild Card band from this year’s Red Bull Bedroom Jam) did a great job at Download Festival!
A live video of them performing their track Fangs can be viewed below!
Check out this blog the band have written about their experiences of Download Festival:
“For us Download was by far the best show we have ever played. The tent was full right to the back and we were told we had around 1200 people watching us.
We were all so nervous compared to normal shows as we knew it was going to be a busy show, but were completely bowled over when we went on stage and saw how big our crowd was.
We were glad we were playing early on the Saturday as it meant we could get drunk and not worry on the Saturday and Sunday night. We had an awesome time and met some of our favourite bands such as Four Year Strong and even met the legend that is Chris Jericho!
The whole experience was pretty surreal from playing the Red Bull Bedroom Jam Stage to doing all the interviews inside the press area afterwards. We took full advantage of the free beer that was given out from 6pm in the media tent too!
We made real good friends with some of the other bands involved – especially I Divide [who were jokes - activities included "worm races" "headbutting a skip" and "mc battles"].
We hope we get invited back as we had a rad weekend and it was made even better by the fact we got the backstage experience [seeing Metallica's equipment lorries, Tenacious D's tour bus and hanging out with bigger bands]!”
Golden Tanks will be heading out on a short UK tour from July 11 – check out Facebook.com/GoldenTanks for full details!
