SELKIRK bassist Kyle Rutherford is headed for India.
The member of heavy metal group Cerebral Bore, who recently signed a deal with label Earache Records, will perform in Darjeeling in October to headline the Underground Unleashed festival.
It has been billed as the biggest metal festival in India and includes bands from Iran, Brazil, Sweden and Indonesia.
Kyle’s father Jim said: “It is amazing considering that the [Indian] culture centres around Bollywood music and Abba-type pop. It will be an international affair with bands coming from all over the world.”
