Two Thousand Trees Festival have announced the first wave of bands announced for this year’s edition of the award winning festival.
Based in Gloucestershire, the three day event will have a lot to live up to after last year’s festival attracting the likes of Deaf Havana and Young Guns however it seems they have already gone a long way with the latest announcement of five bands.
Swedish hardcore punk band Refused were among the bands that got announced this evening on BBC Radio One’s rock show.
Formed over 25 years ago, Refused returned to the music scene back in 2012 after over ten years rest and they certainly came back in style playing at the Coachella Velley Music Festival in California.
Scottish band Twin Atlantic will be joining them as the band celebrates their tenth year together next year and will be playing hits such as Heart and Soul and Free.
Fresh from supporting Bullet for My Valentine last year, Sheffield based metalcore band While She Sleeps have also been announced alongside up and coming band WSTR.
The pop punk band has a certain ‘Neck Deep’ sound to them however they will certainly send a buzz to the festival.
Last but certainly not least, Moose Blood will certainly be one of the marquee names throughout the weekend having just announced a UK Tour just last week and due to release a new album this year.
Fresh from their first US headline show and touring with Lower Than Atlantis, Moose Blood will return to the UK with a brand new tour in April as the lads from Canterbury go strength from strength.
And this was of course after playing at Reading Festival and Warped Tour for the first time last year so lead singer Eddy Brewerton and the rest of the band has a lot to live up to in 2016.
Venues announced for this tour include Southampton’s 1865 on 14th April, Islington’s 02 Academy the next day and Edinburgh’s Mash House on 22nd April are among the ten dates that the band are touring.
While in the US late last year, the band worked on their next album with American musician and record producer Beau Burchell.
The album is due to come out this year through No Sleep Records and after the success of I’ll Keep You in Mind, From Time to Time in the US and UK, there is no doubt this eagerly awaited album will be another hit.
It’s been over a year since Moose Blood released their last album and already they have
revealed there will be 12 songs in the upcoming album.
You can make out several song names from the photo released on
Including ‘Sway’, ‘I Pad’ and ‘Paws’. What makes this information even more interesting is that the picture reveals the album will have some sort of EDM (Electronic Dance Music)
which is something not scene before by the band.
