Dragged Into Sunlight have given us a pair of tickets for one lucky reader for the Somerset festival taking place later this month

Liverpool extreme metal group have generously given us a pair of tickets to the ArcTanGent Festival they're playing in Compton Martin, Somerset, taking place on August 29-31.

As well as their good selves, there's also 65daysofstatic, Fuck Buttons, Bo Ningen, Rolo Tomassi, Islet, Blklstrs, Castrovalva and others on the bill - have a look at the festival's website for full details and tickets.

The festival slot comes as part of a few live dates the band have on the horizon:

Thu 29 - The Blade Factory, Liverpool
Fri 30 - ArcTanGent Festival, Compton Martin, Somerset
Sat 31 - Asylum 2, Birmingham

Fri 20 - Incubate Festival, Tilberg, The Netherlands

We've also had word that the band have a new split release and further tour dates planned for later in the year, so stay tuned to the site for further updates - in the meantime, have a read of our In Extremis feature with the band and watch a video of them at last year's Maryland Deathfest at the foot of the piece.

But, the crucial issue: we've got a pair of tickets to give away - to be in with a chance of winning, e-mail your answer to the following question to, with ARCTANGENT in the subject line, by noon on Friday 16 August. To read the Quietus Competition terms & conditions, click here.
