Godflesh, the reunited British industrial metal rockers, have been confirmed as a headlining act at Supersonic Festival 2010. The festival, which is being held in the group’s hometown of Birmingham, England, will be Godflesh’s first UK show in over ten years.
Godflesh member Justin Broadrick says, “We cannot even recall specifically the first Birmingham Godflesh show. Oddly, we think it was supporting Suicide in 1988, just after
the release of our first Mini LP on Swordfish, the record label of Birmingham’s best record shop. So it’s only natural that the first Godflesh UK show in its original form in over 10 years, comes home to its birthplace, and for whom better than Supersonic, the organisation responsible for keeping Birmingham on the map with underground music, be it metal or otherwise. It is with great pleasure that Godflesh returns to its roots.”
Supersonic Festival 2010 will be held October 22-24 at the Custard Factory in Birmingham, England.
