Primordial Radio is sad to announce that Those Damn Crows have had to pull out of the General Mayhem, statement from the band:

It is with huge regret that we must announce that we will be unable to perform our headline slot next weekend at Primordial General Mayhem.

Unfortunately, Shane has suffered a back injury that has left him incapacitated and hardly able to walk right now, let alone perform. He’s been advised that the only solution is a period of rest, so we will be following medical advice on this until Shane is back on his feet.

We can only offer our sincere apologies, and send our very best wishes to these two incredible festivals, who have been extremely understanding of our situation. Please support them in any way you can.

We’ll see you soon.
Those Damn Crows’


Whilst we’re obviously very disappointed to not have Crows on the bill, our first thoughts are with Shane and we wish him a very speedy recovery!

We are however very excited to announce that the incredible FLORENCE BLACK will be stepping in to close the Friday night 🔥

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation
Sophie Lancaster was a young woman who was murdered for being different. She and her boyfriend were creative, artistic people who dressed in their own unique way. They were attacked by a gang of five boys in a park in Bacup, Lancashire on 11 August 2007. The gang attacked Sophie’s boyfriend first and then turned on her, carrying out a brutal and sustained attack. Sophie remained in hospital for 13 days, before following medical advice, the family agreed to life support being switched off. Sophie died on 24 August 2007; she was just 20 years old.

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established as a lasting legacy to a beautiful life cut short by violence. The Foundation’s mission to stamp out prejudice hatred and intolerance everywhere can be summed up in one word – S.O.P.H.I.E.
