British doom pop group Courtesans have been announced for Bloodstock Festival ahead of their EP release and new song ‘Knowhere’.

Rising stars Courtesans have been invited to perform live at metal festival Bloodstock this Summer.

And to coincide with the announcement they have released ‘Knowhere’ an addictive and dark rock song.

It’s broody and it’s sulty, but is also softer than doom-metal, making it much more palatable for folks who don’t like to go too far down the rabbit hole.

Their forthcoming EP ‘Better Safe Than Sober’ is due out at the end of March 2017, ahead of Bloodstock, where they will join the bill alongside Amon Amarth, Megadeth, Skindred, Arch Enemy, Hatebreed, Testament, King 810 and many more.

Lead vocalist Sinead La Bella said: “To perform at Bloodstock is incredible exciting. It’s a huge honour to play the Sophie Lancaster Stage, her legacy is at the heart of our ethics.

“We are advocates of equality and have a zero tolerance to any form of prejudice. We hope to raise a few eyebrows and stir some s**t up.”
