VAMPS(JPN), the Japanese rock band formed by and featuring HYDE (L'Arc~en~Ciel) and K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust), are confirmed to appear at this year's Download Festival, held at its usual stomping ground of Donnington Park from June 13th - 15th; this will mark the band's third visit to the UK, following their recent headline show at Koko, North London, and last October's sold-out Islington Academy performance.
"We just finished the show at KOKO, London, and already we plan to come back and play for you guys at Download festival in June!!We will do our best to come back to the UK as many times as we can this year! Come to the festival and check out our performance, if you get a chance!!" - Hyde, VAMPS (JPN).
VAMPS(JPN)'s debut international album, 'Sex Blood Rock n' Roll', is available now through Spinefarm Records, including the singles'Revolution II' & 'Sex Blood Rock n' Roll'.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
