BILOCATE Confirmed For Wave Gothic Treffen in Germany And Upcoming Album Updates


Jordanian dark oriental metallers BILOCATE have been confirmed for this year's Wave Gotik Treffen Festival, which will take place June 09 - June 13 in Leipzig, Germany. The band will play alongside doom and gothic international acts such as KATATONIA, ANATHEMA, TIAMAT, TRISTANIA and 266 other bands. BILOCATE will perform on stage on June 10 and will deliver an impressive set-list including songs from their latest album 'Sudden Death Syndrome' as well as brand new stuff. As for this show, the band's keyboardist Waseem Essayed will be replaced by session player Saif Zaabi from the UAE band XCEED.

Commented singer Ramzi Essayed: "We are honored to be a part of Germany's biggest gothic metal festival and share the stage with many great bands, this marks BILOCATE's first live performance after 2 years, the band will gather in the same country finally just few days before the festival but we will make this an event to remember. We will play new tracks from the upcoming album as well as some of our fans favorite titles, we are done from recording the new album and expect nothing but fast, atmospheric and dark tunes that will satisfy your metal taste".

Added Lorenzo Marchello of Kolony Records: "We're really glad the band will make it back to Europe finally! Even if they already played some European major festivals in the past - Devilstone Open Air (LT) and Uni Rock (TR) -, this is the first show of BILOCATE in Germany so far. Last year the band was forced to cancel several show in Europe, including Metal Camp (SL), Hell Over Vellach (AT) and Rockmaraton (HU) due to the rejection of European Visas by the Italian embassy. It looks almost all problems with Visas have been fixed now and BILOCATE are finally ready to meet their German fans!"

Moreover, the band is gonna perform in Dubai, UAE this upcoming Friday, June 3 as headliner of the Holy Noise metal night. More details can be checked here:

Band's upcoming release will feature a very special guest which will be announced soon, as well as album title, release date and record label's details.
