Today we heard the official announcement today from Mad Hatter 2.0’s retirement from music and therefore pulling out of playing Breaking Bands Festival for this year. Lots of messages of best wishes have been pouring in from fans and musicians after hearing the sad news. We at thebbfest wish Marc a speedy recovery from his ill health and wish all the band members the best of luck which ever way they go from here.
We have had a band on standby for quite a while now. Seeing them last year (and going on a mini tour with them), festival owner Mucka Jay has been very excited about Cadence Noir, a Neuvo Acoustic Goth band from Nottingham.
It was too late to add them to the line-up but Mucka told the band that if a place became available, then it shall be there’s! We already announced this week that Cadence Noir would be making an appearance on the acoustic stage but now they will also be filling in the rather large gap left by the withdrawal of Mad Hatter 2.0 – 6pm Saturday evening.
So we’d like to welcome Cadence Noir into the bbfest family and hope you all check them out. A great addition after a great loss. Here is the band performing a rather solid cover of Iron Maiden’s ‘Fear Of The Dark’ which seems quite apt considering Blaze is playing the festival!
