The mighty MALLORY KNOX may have released their latest album ‘Asymmetry’ in 2014, but that hasn’t stopped them touring non stop since then. The band are regulars on radio playlists and magazine covers, and if their recent London headline show at The Roundhouse was anything to go by, 2000trees Festival go-ers are in for a real treat!
Following breakthrough recent album ‘There Is Only You’, THE XCERTS have been taking time out to write the follow up, as well as tour the UK with the likes of Twin Atlantic, Deaf Havana and many more. This will be the bands first UK festival appearance of 2016, making it one not to be missed.
COUNTERFEIT have an incredibly exciting 2016 ahead of them. April sees the band release their new single ‘Enough’ and play their first UK headline tour (which includes their second ever London show at Electric Ballroom on 24th April). The five-piece punk-rock outfit then return to mainland Europe for another string of dates, leading them nicely into their performance at 2000 Trees in July!
Tech-metal pioneers and musical virtuosos ANIMALS AS LEADERS return to the UK for their last run of dates promoting their phenomenal third album ‘The Joy Of Motion’. Currently in the studio, the band are working on their highly anticipated new record which they plan to release at the end of 2016. A must see, debut 2000trees Festival set.
The brilliant ARCANE ROOTS return to 2000trees Festival in triumphant form. Following their signing to new label Easy Life/Sony RED last year, the band have released new ‘Heaven and Earth’ EP, had a R1 Rockest Record in ‘Slow Dance’, Scuzz video of the week with ‘If Nothing Breaks, Nothing Moves’, a sold out headline show at Dingwalls, tours with Fightstar and Don Broco and a support at Alexandra Palace with Enter Shikari. The band are currently writing their new, full length album, due later in 2016.
You can’t move at the moment and not find BLACK PEAKS there. The Brighton 4 piece are currently on the Radio 1 playlist and MTV Rocks B-list with ‘Glass Built Castles’, are releasing debut album ‘Statues’ on Friday 8th April, touring the UK right now and gracing the pages of magazines left right and centre. This will be one of THE sets of the weekend. Hands down.
With a growing army of fans adoring their theatrical, black hearted punk, Southampton’s finest CREEPER (who are currently on tour with Neck Deep and will then hit the road with Black Veil Brides’ Andy Black on his first solo tour) are one of the hottest properties in UK rock right now. Signed to Roadrunner UK and famed for their incendiary live shows, the band are cannot wait to bring their new line-up to 2000trees Festival.
Band of the moment MILK TEETH follow up their recently released, massively well received debut album ‘Vile Child’ with this, their debut 2000trees Festival performance. Anyone who heard their recent Radio 1 Rock Show session will know how special this band are, and how this will be a real ‘moment’ for the UK 4 piece.
After a year touring their ace, recent album ‘Eleven Eleven’ and fresh off the back of UK and European dates with the likes of Brand New and Weezer, DINOSAUR PILE-UP are now ready to get stuck into the festival season, starting with the mighty 2000trees!!!
