Legendary American hardcore band H2O have confirmed that they will play at Jakarta's Hammersonic rock festival this year, scheduled for July 22.

The organizers of Hammersonic Festival said in a statement that H2O's performance at the event would be the band's first in a festival in Asia.

H2O is the second band in the festival line-up to have confirmed their participation. In May, Swedish heavy metal band In Flames announced they would fly to Jakarta for one day at Hammersonic festival.

In June, H20 released their tour dates, and their performance in Jakarta will be sandwiched between gigs at Mission Ready Festival and Bretinga Open Air, both in Germany.

H2O is an American hardcore band formed in New York City in 1994. The band have released eight albums, with the latest being released in 2015. The band has signed with a number of record labels including punk institution Epitaph Records and major label MCA.

Hammersonic, which started in 2012, is considered the biggest heavy metal festival in Southeast Asia. A number of big heavy metal names such as Lamb of God, Kreator and Megadeth have performed at the festival.
