TDEP: Setting sail with Hammer on June 16

On June 16, the Metal Hammer Golden Gods return, and as always, the HMS Hammer will be setting sail for the pre-show boat party!

The awards, held at the London Indigo2 and hosted by none other than Steel Panther, will be preceded by our traditional pre-awards boat gig, in which a few dozen lucky fans will get to sail down the Thames and lose their shit to a clutch of amazing bands!

We’re delighted to confirm the first names for the boat this year, and we’re even more delighted that they’re fucking brilliant.

The Dillinger Escape Plan will be raising hell upon HMS Hammer for what will be an undoubtedly bonkers show, and will be joined by Texan hellraisers Upon A Burning Body, Rex Brown’s Kill Devil Hill and death metal heroes, Dying Fetus!

“Dillinger Escape Plan have done many things over the years but we have never played on a boat,” offer TDEP. “We’re pretty sure there is a good reason for that. But fuck it! Loose lips sink ships, and we’re pretty sure metal attracts a lot of loose-lipped metal MILFs that want nothing to do with a band like Dillinger. And that’s is the perfect audience for us. We look forward to being a part of this year’s Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards.”

Plenty more names for the main event will be announced in the coming weeks. Get ready.

Orange Amplification Presents…The Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards in association with World Of Tanks take place Monday June 16 at the London Indigo2. Voting opens on April 7. Stay tuned for more details…
