Hacktivist from the UK have more than established themselves already. Hacktivist stand for some kickass djent crossover metal; a mix of low bass lines, groovy riffs and aggressive (rap) vocals. The rock-solid debut album 'Outside The Box', which had tracks like 'False Idols', 'Elevate' and 'Deceive and Defy' on it, dates back to 2016, after which the single '2 Rotten' was released in 2017. The band has toured extensively and has played festivals in the Benelux like Graspop Metal Meeting, Forta Rock, Vans Warped Tour and Complexity Fest, as well as shows with Korn and Issues, after which they slowed down a little in 2018. After some changes in the band line-up, Hacktivist is back this year and new music is coming real soon. The band is ready to kill it as headliner for Submit Fest and believe us, you want to experience a Hacktivist show, so do not miss it!
Palm Reader (UK)
Palm Reader from the UK has become one of the most respected underground bands in a short time. Their debut album 'Bad Weather' and the second album 'Besides The One's We Love' were already well received, but the band took it a step further with 'Braille', which was released in 2018 and with which they delivered one of the better albums of 2018 within the alternative genre. After support shows for The Contortionist, Will Haven and Rolo Tomassi (a.o), you'll be able to see Palm Reader at Submit Fest in May
The Royal (NL)
The Royal has already become an established name within the Dutch metal scene. The band brings a refreshing crossover sound, in which they combine metal, groove, melody and powerful lyrics. The Royal will release their new album 'Deathwatch' via Long Branch Records in March, which will be the successor of 'Seven', released in 2017. They have already proven to be a very strong live act, with performances at festivals like Jera On Air and Impericon Festival and opener slots for bands like Architects and Breakdown of Sanity. Expect a great live show at Submit Fest 2019 filled with new tunes from 'Deathwatch' as well as older The Royal tracks!
Time, The Valuator (DE)
Time, The Valuator from Germany made quite an impression last year with their debut album 'How Fleeting, How Fragile'. The album was received with a lot of praise and songs like "How Fleeting", "In Control" and "Starseeker" delivered a strong sound. Musically the band brings a mix of different styles, in which atmospheric, catchy and heavy elements come together to create their own sound. After having made an impression with performances at Euroblast, for example, in 2019 it's time for fans to be blown away by Time, The Valuator at Submit Fest 2019!
Prepare to be destroyed by RXPTRS. The alternative rock band from the UK combines rock, punk, metal and hardcore elements to create a sound that is wild, exciting and original. With a debut EP coming up, RXPTRS has already built a strong live reputation. The band is known for their raw and energetic shows and we can not wait to see them at Submit Fest 2019. Do not miss your chance to see RXPTRS in the setting of Baroeg and let yourself be blown away by this energetic band!
The Dutch nu-metal band Frontstreet was formed at the end of 2015 and they released their first EP 'Under Pressure' shortly after. They were soon picked up by 3FM, where they have already been in the studio three times, and the video for "Bad Habit" regularly passed on MTV Brand New. Since then, the band released their debut album 'Reality Check', they opened for Crazy Town, Hollywood Undead and Fleddy Melculy and Frontstreet provided the official aftershow for none other than Limp Bizkit at AFAS Live. Not bad at all for such a short period of time! Frontstreet will bring some nu-metal to Submit Fest 2019, so come and check, check, check it out!
Familiar Spirit (UK)
Familiar Spirit is a young band from the UK that you really have to keep an eye on. The progressive metal / metalcore of the band contains passion-soaked soundscapes and visceral passages and with the single 'Reach' the band has managed to already make an amazing impression. With a busy tour schedule as a result! Familiar Spirit has played with Nexilva and they will soon be touring with Submit Fest veterans Exist Immortal and Death Remains.
Familiar Spirit is an open book about our true self; time to get familiar with yourself and with this band!
