Planet Caravan adds weight to an already heavy line-up! AC Entertainment announces a second wave of artists for the inaugural Planet Caravan festival. Featuring an exciting array of underground and up-and-coming heavy bands, new artists added to the line-up include Brooklyn experimental metal trio Tombs, southern psych-metal band Zoroaster, thundering riff gods Bison b.c., and old-school doomsters The Gates of Slumber. Also added to the bill are North Carolina’s crushing Sourvein, Brooklyn post-metal outfit Hull, and the massively doomy Salome and Batillus.

All newly announced acts will perform on the second stage at Mo Daddy’s, located next door to the Orange Peel Social Aid & Pleasure Club.

Planet Caravan, a two-day music festival celebrating the origins of heavy music, takes place September 18-19, 2009 at The Orange Peel Social Aid & Pleasure Club and Mo Daddy’s in downtown Asheville, NC. The event spotlights bands that carry on the traditional sounds of heavy rock and blues and others that push it into new and exciting territories.
