RSJ Announce Their GIR 2009 Headliners

Rock Street Journal have announced the international headline acts for the forthcoming Great Indian Rock fest.

US based sludge/prog metallers Intronaut and Norwegian metalcore act Benea Reach are scheduled to headline GIR this time.

The mag has also told they would announce more headlining acts in the forthcoming weeks.

Meanwhile festival dates have been announced as well.

The festival dates and venues are as follows:
PUNE - fri, 23rd Oct - OASIS
DELHI - Sat 24th and sun 25th Oct - Hamsadwhani, Pragati Maidan
BANGALORE - Sun 25th Oct, Palace Grounds

CLUB DATES: Manipal, Hyderabad, Mumbai - TBA

On a personal note I am really disappointed as of now after reading that some relatively unknown band is performing in GIR this time. That too a sludge and a mallcore one!After seeing them bring along established black metal acts like Satyricon and Enslaved, RSJ have let us down by going commercial and bringing metalcore acts, something that has not been in RSJ's soup before.

For the other acts, I am really hoping they are some extreme ones.
Keeping fingers crossed till then.
