It feels like these days if you play heavy, fast, loud music it has to be labelled “something core” (hardcore/skatecore/grindcore/metalcore etc). Blood Duster could be labelled grindcore, they could just as easily be labelled a rock band. They also don’t give a fuck what we think because after 20 years, they have done alright without the media’s useless labels and mainstream popularity terminology. They just continue to make music for themselves and we are just lucky enough to be allowed to hear it occasionally. Like we will get the chance to as they tour with Bastardfest. A local touring festival of heavy music. We caught up with Jason from the band to learn about the new record, the bands longevity and Reflex copy paper.
The final artist announcements for the 2012 BASTARDFEST are here! With the exception of Brisbane, Canberra and Melbourne, whose secret headliners are yet to be revealed, all the other line-ups are now fully revealed! Competitions and door prizes are to be announced soon, as well as more info on what is to be one of the hardest hitting national music tours of the year!
