Firebug set to light up Sonisphere Festival

Taking time out from recording their next album with Queens of the Stone Age producer Chris Goss, the Zeppelin and Pink Floyd influenced psychedelic rockers are looking forward to playing in the UK again.

Playing alongside legendary rock bands like The Cult, Iron Maiden and Iggy Pop, is really a dream come true! And to do all that in the UK, a country so influential in making rock music what it is today, is great.”
