Firefest 2011: Serpentine added to Firefest Friday!

Serpentine

It’s with great pleasure that we can announce the addition of Serpentine to the bill for the Friday show at Rock City in Nottinghamon October 21st. Following an impressive performance at the Borderline in London last weekend the UK melodic rockers will open Firefest 2011 on a bill that also includes Houston, Terry Brock and headliner Jimi Jamison.

At their first ever live show, Serpentine - with new singer Matt Black replacing popular TNT and Shy vocalist Tony Mills - acquitted themselves well between the excellent Vega and Swedish favourites Houston, gaining praise from the likes of Dave Ling (Classic Rock), Rob Evans (Powerplay) and Firefest organiser Kieran Dargan. Therefore it seemed only fair that the band - completed by keyboard player Gareth David Noon, bassist Gareth Vanstone, guitarist Chris Gould and drummer Roy Millward - will join Vega and Houston in the line-up of Firefest, which members of the band have supported and attended since its inception.

The band released their debut album ‘A Touch Of Heaven’ in 2010 to many great reviews (click here to read the Rocktopia CD review), including the top mark (92%) in that month’s edition of Burrn! magazine in Japan. The follow-up is in the closing stages of completion and will again feature Tony Mills on lead vocals, with Matt Black supplying backing vocals this time out before fronting the band on album number three. Tony will continue to work with Serpentine in a songwriting role and has fully endorsed Matt as his replacement to enable the band to step into the live arena, which due to Tony’s TNT schedule he was unable to commit to.

Of course the extra band means an earlier start to the show, with doors opening at 5pm and Serpentine taking the stage at 5.30pm, so hopefully everyone attending will have ample time to make arrangements to get there early and see an extra band for the same bargain price. Tickets for Friday are still available at www.thefirefest.com for £25, with tickets for the Saturday and Sunday shows also available at £55 per day. Tickets are continuing to sell amazingly well, so thanks once again for your continued support and we hope you’re as pleased about our latest addition as we

Best wishes from the Firefest team.
