METAL BAND WOR TO PERFORM AT THE SOLD OUT BLUE RIDGE ROCK FESTIVAL EXPECTING 160,000 FANS IN DANVILLE, VIRGINIA ON SEPTEMBER 11TH
The rock experience will be bigger than ever this year featuring legendary headliners who will appear on six different stages over four days.
WoR, the metal band based out of Raleigh, North Carolina will be performing their debut album Prisoners at the SOLD OUT four day rock experience Blue Ridge Rock Festival located at the Blue Ridge Amphitheater in Danville, Virginia on Saturday, September 11th. This year, the festival will feature headliners Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Megadeth, The Offspring, Lamb of God, Chevelle, Cypress Hill, Anthrax, Ludacris, T-Pain, Lil Jon, Tech N9ne, and many more. The rock experience is sold out with 160,000 people in attendance and will be one of WoR’s biggest audiences to date.
WoR is a metal quintet consisting of vocalist Bobby Demoss, guitarists Ben Kaiser and David Nisoff, bassist Phillip Funderburk, and drummer Dylan Jenkins. Their music combines aggressive riffs, harmonic leads, and tasteful breakdowns with infectious anti-authoritarian lyics. Demoss’ unique screaming style combined with the aggressive guitar work and a dynamic rhythm section shape WoR’s definitive sound.
By the spring of 2019, WoR had begun to debut their music at live shows throughout the southeast region of the United States playing with the likes of Upon A Burning Body, Atilla,and Warbringer just to name a few. Their debut album entitled Prisoners, via BungaloRecords/Universal Music Group was released earlier in August 2020 and honestly deserves as much attention as it can get.
“Prisoners is our first project, and it is essentially our introduction. It is a compilation of our best songs that we created together and the album’s song sequence showcases our band progression over time.” shares Bobby Demoss. “We’re very excited to perform it live. We bring out a lot of energy on stage. We get the pits open, the crowd shaking and the people in the front jumping. When we’re off the stage, we hangout with everyone and take photos. Our fans feel like family to us.”
