The Rock Show is the gift that keeps on giving. Thanks to them we’ve got the first five names for 2000 Trees Festival 2016.
The tenth edition of the festival will be headed up by a powerful one-two of Twin Atlantic and former Upset Cover-stars Refused. Joining them will also be Moose Blood, While She Sleeps and WSTR.
Speaking on the phone to Daniel P. Carter, Twin Atlantic‘s Sam McTrusty explained (from L.A.), “We’re really excited to be headlining 2000 Trees because it’s the first time we’ve headlined a festival in the UK.” He also let slip that the band are, “getting ready to go back into the studio today and record our new album. It’s probably our heaviest record yet and it’s our most reactive album. It’s a lot more visceral and a lot more in your face. It definitely feels like we’ve reinvented something.” The band are hoping to have it out come the summer and are warning people to “expect the unexpected.”
