We’re very pleased to welcome Prides, Sivu, Menace Beach, Heyrocco, Longfellow, Solareye, Palace and James Kruman to the Twisterella line-up. They’ll be joining previously announced acts including Eliza and the Bear, Cattle & Cane, Sweet Baboo, Jake Isaac, Laurel, The Hosts, Brontide, Happyness, Bad Breeding, Dancing Years, Lovepark and Stanley Odd to name but a few.
Glaswegian electro-pop trio Prides head to Twisterella off the back of performing live at the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony, being announced as one of the headliners on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading & Leeds and playing alongside Blink 182 at a huge sold-out London show. Their brand new single “I Should Know You Better” is released on 29th September and has already been getting plenty of airplay on Radio 1.
Atlantic Records signing Sivu recently toured with London Grammar and has picked up plenty of support across Radio 1, 6Music and XFM. Having finished runner-up to Banks in the Blog Sound of 2014 poll, Sivu’s debut album will be released on 5th October. We’re absolutely buzzing to have confirmed him for our acoustic stage.
Hotly tipped Leeds based fuzz-pop band Menace Beach boast a revolving cast of Yorkshire luminaries in their line up, including MJ of Hookworms on lead guitar, Nestor Matthews of Sky Larkin on drums, Robert Lee of Pulled Apart By Horses on guitar, Matt Spalding on bass and, very occasionally, Paul Draper (ex-Mansun) on guitar and back up vocals.
South Carolina’s Heyrocco will be bringing their blistering indie-grunge to Middlesbrough all the way from the USA, while London based indie quintet Longfellow will be adding some epic, melodically charged alt-pop to the proceedings.
Stanley Odd’s Solareye, Hartlepool indie-pop kids Palace and Teesside singer-songwriter James Kruman complete today’s line-up additions.
