Primordial Presents October 2019 flyer

The show due to take place on Saturday 12th October 2019 at Rebellion, Manchester will be headlined by Tequila Mockingbyrd, purveyors of high caliber, exuberant, rock music that is packed with catchy riffs, searing melodies and guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

Support will be coming from Blind River who have recently made a huge impact playing at the likes of Desertfest, Bloodstock and opening for Grand Magus. Jackals Backbone will also be joining the bill with their mix of Sludge and Death Metal combined with the melodic sensibilities of Trad and Thrash Metal. More support acts TBC.

From Primordial Radio’s Music Director; Pete Bailey –

“After the huge success of the first Primordial Presents back in June I genuinely couldn’t wait to get the next one up and running! When it became clear myself and Maria & Jon were talking to the same bands it made complete sense to join forces to raise money for the incredible Manchester Mind & Heavy Metal Truants via their ride. To have Tequila Mockinbyrd, Blind River, Jackals Backbone and more tbc is going to be IMMENSE! See you on the 12th October

Maria & Jon Field’s Heavy Metal Truants Ride –

PRfam members Maria & Jon Field are taking part in The Heavy Metal Truants 2020.
The Heavy Metal Truants are a charity cycling group co-founded by Metal Hammer’s former editor- in-chief Alexander Milas and legendary Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood. In 2012, Rod Smallwood invited Alexander Milas on one of his now infamous charity cycle rides, this one through the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco in some truly blistering heat. When the returned back to the UK tired, but pleased with their efforts, the idea of a charity heavy metal cycle ride to Donington, the home place of Download Festival, was born.
The Heavy Metal Truants support Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust, and Childline.
