Facing the Gallows win the Wacken Metal Battle South Africa Competition

By Press Release / News / Monday, 29 April 2019 10:09

Plug Music Agency is very happy to announce that our very own Facing the Gallows won the Wacken Metal Battle South Africa leg of the international competition on Saturday 27th April. The guys were up against some amazing bands, any one of them could have won and represented South Africa with pride. They'll be heading off to Germany later this year to compete in the finals at the prestigious Wacken Open Air Festival. 

The band comments on the win, "It's hard to put into words how we're feeling, to be honest. Overwhelmed, excited, nervous, proud, in disbelief but honoured that we've given this opportunity to represent SA at this year's Wacken Open Air Festival. It's the dream, it's what we've sacrificed and worked so hard towards for so many years. It's finally happening, we're going to Europe! Mental...

Thank you to Sash, her team and the judges without your dedication and love for this scene we wouldn't have anything. It means everything to this band.

We would also like to give a massive thank you to everyone who supported the battle heats and the final. Lastly a massive shout out to all the bands who played at the SA final. The love we have for every member who stepped on that stage is immense. Everyone was incredible and we hope we can make you all proud over there. We won't let any of you down especially after the performances you did. 

We hope from all of this, we can create that bridge and template that helps every band in this country get the same chance that we now have. It's time to knock over the SA fishbowl, kick in Europe's door and let them know what's up! South Africa is back!" 

Wacken Metal Battle South Africa promoter Sashquita Northey adds, "We're extremely honoured to have such a powerful South African band make it to the final this year. We know that they will sieze each and every opportunity made available to them at Wacken Open Air. Good luck guys. You deserve this experience!"
