Bring Me The Horizon for Reading & Leeds

Sheffield deathcore band Bring Me The Horizon have been announced as the replacement for Slipknot at this weekend's Reading and Leeds Festivals.

The five-piece will open the main stage at Reading on the Sunday (24 August) and Leeds tomorrow (22 August).

Feeder, Avenged Sevenfold, Dropkick Murphys, Plain White T's, Alexisonfire and Mindless Self Indulgence will all now move up a slot to fill the gap left by Slipknot.

Slipknot pulled out of the festivals yesterday because of a injury sustained by drummer Joey Jordison.

The Killers, Rage Against The Machine and Metallica will headline the sold out festivals.
