SOD front man / vocalist Twan Holliday comments:
“We at Saints Of Death are really excited to play this gig. Prong was part of our school days soundtrack. Pieces like Unconditional & Snap Your Finger, Snap Your Neck were anthems in the turbulent and troublesome 90’s metal landscape. We are glad to be part of their 25th anniversary tour. We also had an incredible experience playing the Venue last time, making us really anticipate this one. What a sick way to kick start the summer \m/”
