Welsh indie favourites return to their home country for the massive outdoor show
The band, formed in Llandudno in North Wales back in 2007, will bring their anthemic indie rock to the Cardiff landmark next summer. It'll be one of the biggest headline shows for the band, made up of Van McCann, Matthew Blakeway, Robert Hall and Johnny Bond, to date.
Their debut album The Balcony was released in 2014, cracking the top 10 of the UK album charts, it featured lots of singles with one word titles, including 'Homesick', 'Rango', 'Kathleen, 'Fallout' and 'Cocoon'.
They returned in 2016 with The Ride, which bettered their debut, reaching the very top of the UK charts propelled by tracks like 'Soundcheck', '7', 'Outside' and 'Twice'. The success of the record continued into 2017, with the band headlining the first ever Community Festival at London's Finsbury Park, and playing massive shows at Reading and Leeds Festival, Latitude and Kendal Calling.
