Zao, Living Sacrifice, Misery Signals, Etc. Added To 2020 ‘Furnace Fest’


The lineup for next year’s returning ‘Furnace Fest‘ has once again been expanded with some artists who will likely appeal to those who experienced the festival’s original heydays. The newest additions to it include:

Living Sacrifice
Misery Signals

The festival’s organizers tried to sweeten the deal by having ’68‘s Josh Scogin revisit his previous works in Norma Jean and The Chariot, though that did not come to pass. They commented of that:

“As you might have guessed, we’ve approached (maybe even politely pressured) Josh Scogin about playing a Bless The Martyr (original line up) album set, and even discussed a The Chariot reunion, at FF2020.

It would be beyond easy (not to mention financially rewarding) for someone as prolific as Josh Scogin to live in the comfort of nostalgia.

However, one thing we appreciate so much about Josh is that he is forever fixated on the future, the new, and the “now”… with that said, we feel 100% honored to partner with him and what we know is going to be a rambunctiously good time with ’68 at FF2020! So, if you see copycat images that we haven’t publicly shared (like The Chariot, Van Halen, WuTang Clan, or Tony Bennett), please know there’s a good chance someone is pulling a sock full of pennies on you.”

The fest will be held September 18th-20th at the Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, AL. Previously announced bands for the festival include:

August Burns Red
Evergreen Terrace
Few Left Standing
Further Seems Forever
Life In Your Way
Shai Hulud
The Beautiful Mistake
With Honor

Further announcements are expected.
