Reading & Leeds Festivals announce new wave of acts


Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Sleeping With Sirens and Asking Alexandria head the list of names recently added to the Reading & Leeds line-ups.

Other bands announced in the latest wave of artists include FVK, Southampton-based band CreeperCitizenDillinger Escape PlanWakratKvelertak and Dead!

Floridian five-piece Sleeping With Sirens are currently embarking on a European tour, having just come across from the mainland with support from Cambridge rockers Mallory Knox. They will be playing six shows in the UK; in Bristol, Nottingham, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham before winding the tour down in London at the Roundhouse.

Frank Carter finally has something to smile about after having to cancel numerous shows over the past couple of weeks due to a bout of tonsillitis. But speaking to Kerrang! the former Gallows frontman said: “Reading and Leeds Festivals are an institution in international rock and roll. As a fan, it’s a festival of legendary performances with each year birthing new “I was there” moments. As a musician it’s a milestone in your career if you are lucky enough to play it. It’s a place to truly try and find your personal best and initiate yourself into the halls of legend.”
