We are really excited about returning to the island next month to attend this third edition! Here's an overview of the festival and the epic lineup we will be enjoying in just a few short weeks. \m/

Formed in North London, quartet Jackknife Seizure have been steadily honing their musical craft. This is not a band to put into a box easily: their powerful, proggy grunge infused with heavy groove will appeal to fans of Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Sabbath and Tool alike and has been described as "the love-child of Mastodon and The Doors."
After being crowned winners of the London Metal 2 the Masses competition in 2014, the band went on to play Bloodstock Open Air and subsequently released their debut EP, Time of the Trilobites; the title track of which appears on our awesome compilation Forged in Stone and Steel Part 2. After a short hiatus, Jackknife Seizure set about gigging and writing new material for their newly released Starfisher: an epic 5-track mini-album which places the everyday struggles for humanity of our world in the context of a vast, supernatural universe – through the usual quirky Jackknife Seizure lens.

In the summer of 2011 they recorded their second EP: Doll Metal with rock producer Zoltan Varga at Supersize Recordings. Their first official music video came out in August 2012 for Preparation, the first track on the Doll Metal EP.
