Arcane Roots and Cassels are amongst the final bands just announced for this year’s ArcTanGent festival.
The ten new names added also include Myrkur, God Mother, Ilenkus, Mr Marcaille, Bearfoot Beware, Modern Rituals, Soeur and Blanket.
They join a bill that features the likes of Glassjaw, Shellac, And So I Watch You From Afar, La Dispute, Pianos Become The Teeth, Jamie Lenman, Rolo Tomassi, Black Peaks, Zeal & Ardor, Foxing and loads more.
Arcane Roots are planning something special for their set, with an electronic set in the works.
“Over the last couple of years, we have developed a healthy addiction to pushing our little boat out into the wider sea,” the band explain. “At first it was tentative, but once we started releasing music without repercussion, it became something we soon felt we couldn’t be without. We began to open doors that had previously felt closed off to us and set about exploring music that we had never imagined being part of. Slowly, (very slowly) we managed to find some comfortable new ground. Nothing felt more rewarding than opening ourselves up to that risk and choosing to embrace everything that came our way, so at a farm near Bristol, we’d like to open that experience up to everyone else. It’s certainly still an experiment, and certainly still a risk, but i don’t think there is anywhere better than ArcTanGent to present these new and challenging facets of our band.”
ArcTanGent takes place in Bristol between 16th and 18th August. Tickets are on sale now.
