BAD RELIGION, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, SYLOSIS, THE ANSWER, CANCER BATS, MY PASSION, PARADISE LOST, KYLESA and ORANGE GOBLIN are among the newly confirmed bands for the U.K. edition of the Sonisphere festival, set to take place July 8-10 at Knebworth.

"I'm fucking super excited to be part of the Sonisphere festival in the U.K. with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY," said Max Cavalera. "We have a new album out, 'Blunt Force Trauma', and me and Igor are on fire. We are gonna play stuff from the first CD, 'Inflikted', new stuff, some SEPULTURA and NAILBOMB classics, so it should be a storm of metal coming to Sonisphere U.K. I can't wait!"

"It's really great to be added to the Sonisphere bill," adds PARADISE LOST frontman Nick Holmes. "It's a top lineup this year and I intended to go along anyway, only now I don't have to blag my way in ;) Look forward to seeing you all there for a monster weekend of metal!"
