+ posted by FlamingWhopper

All the latest and greatest additions inside

From First To Last, The Fall Of Troy, Beat Union, Stone Gods, and Between The Buried And Me are amongst the latest bands to be announced for this year's Downlaod Festival.

As if that wasn't enough, also added to this year's bill are Finger Eleven, Big Linda, The Haze, Galvatrons, Last Supper, Blackhole, Rolo Tomassi, Malefice, Fighting With Wire, Mexicolas, Caimbo, Glamour Of The Kill, Cry for Silence, Sons Of Albion and Army Of Freshmen.

In additional Download news, this year's Second Stage (sponsored Tuborg) will be open air to allow more people access to the bands they want to see. This should avoid thousands of people being left with no view and very little sound, as was the case for second stage headliners Korn and Motley Crue last year.

Download takes place at Castle Donington between June 13th - 15th.

The future beckons for the band as they head back overseas to play with the Police at London's Hyde Park. It's refreshing to see a band young and fresh enough to be star-struck by the rock stars they run into backstage.

"Justin Hawkins (the Darkness) found us on MySpace and at our first gig Johnny went to the band room to grab a glass of water and he came running up to us saying, 'Smell my jacket - can you smell Justin Hawkins?'" says bassist Condor. "We had flown halfway across the planet and we should have been really nervous playing to these record executives, but when we saw Justin there singing our songs in the front row, we knew we had to put on our best show," adds Galvatron.
