Band of Horses and General Fiasco have just been added as supports to Snow Patrol at Ward Park, Bangor on Saturday 5th June.
Snow Patrolâ€™s massive show at Ward Park in 2007 saw a sell-out crowd of 30,000 adoring fans welcome the band home in true Northern Irish fashion. This summerâ€™s concert promises to be even bigger and better and it will be Snow Patrolâ€™s only Irish concert of 2010.
Released in March of 2006, Band of Horsesâ€™ debut Everything All the Time made good on the promise hinted at in their early shows and demos.
The band went from early shows opening for friends Iron & Wine, to playing on The Late Show with David Letterman by July, and being nominated as one of ten finalists (along with Joanna Newsom, Beirut, Tom Waits, and, the eventual winner, Cat Power) for the Shortlist Music Prize for that same year.
Band of Horses released their follow-up album Cease To Begin in 2007 and the record was very well received critically with celebratory press world-wide. The band are putting the finishing touches to their new album and will hit the airwaves again this spring.
General Fiasco release a brand new single â€˜Ever So Shyâ€™ on 8th March and have recently played the first ever MTV Presents show in Belfast.
Their debut album â€˜Buildingsâ€™ will be released on 22nd March. 2009 saw the band release their first single for Infectious Music. â€˜We Are The Foolishâ€™ received plays on Radio 1, XFM, MTV2 and NME TV â€“ it was described by Rock Sound as having â€œrip-roaring verses and (a) catchy as hell chorusâ€.
General Fiasco have toured up and down the country several times, wooing fans with their punchy concoction of smashing rockâ€™nâ€™roll. They played Download and Glastonbury Festivals, the CMJ in New York, headlined the Ulster Hall in Belfast, and toured with The Enemy and The Answer at the end of 2009.
More acts will be announced shortly. The summer never sounded so good!
