Hotly-tipped math-rockers Pennines' pedigree speaks volumes, with sometime and current other band credits that include Evader, Grand Prix 86, The Captain and Fun!Yeah! The Norwich/London-based quartet has toured to rave reviews. Out promoting their split seven-inch single, This Town Needs Guns, Pennines plan to release a full EP later this year, plus a split single with Blue is the New Black.
Danish/Icelandic quartet Mimas make a welcome return to wombatwombat for the final date of an 11-date UK tour to promote their debut album of “death-indie” anthems, The Worries, released on October 6. Inspired by bands such as Do Make Say Think, Why? Mogwai and Pavement, Mimas' world is melodiously loud/quiet/load and littered with dark lyrics to spine-chilling vocals.
The main auditorium line-up is completed by Amsterdam-based experimental art-punk outfit Labasheeda.
Opening the bill are the ambient sounds of Norwich qartet Buried in Pompeii, formed this year from the ashes of the Shadow Project.
