The Cribs will top the bill at this year’s Live at Leeds festival.

The Wakefield trio, whose new record For All My Sisters is releaed a week on Monday, will headline this year’s big event.

Kicking off the festival season and having already announced a huge lineup including Carl Barat & The Jackals and Dry The River, Live At Leeds bosses said they are proud to announce the addition of The Cribs to the festival.

With their forthcoming sixth album ‘For All My Sisters’ due this month, the Wakefield punks are back after what feels like a far too lengthy absence.

The band have set up up a special Live at Leeds ticket link which includes the new album and a festival ticket. Exclusively available via this link - http://smarturl.it/CribsLeeds

The band’s bassist and singer Gary Jarman said: “We are really looking forward to headlining Live at Leeds. It’s cool because Leeds has always embraced us, and so to be asked to play our ‘comeback’ show headlining the festival is something that we are really looking forward to.

“The two nights we played at the Academy in December 2013 were the last shows that we played in the city, and they were two of our all time favourite gigs - so we have nothing but good feelings towards Leeds right now.”

Sheffield’s Rolo Tomassi have relentlessly pushed the envelope of heavy music since their inception in 2005. Ten years of progression have lead to their eagerly anticipated upcoming album ‘Grievances’ and Live At Leeds are extremely excited to have them back.

Rolo Tomassi’s James Spence said: “We’re pleased to have the opportunity to return to play this years Live at Leeds. Having played the festival in 2010, we know what its all about and are glad to be joining an already fantastic line-up and I hope to catch a bunch of acts on the day!”

Also joining this year’s lineup today are Amy Studt, Charlie Hole, Dan Owen, Elderbrook, Fossa, Johnny O’Donnell, Jonny Quits, Rupert Stroud, Samuel S Parkes, Sophie Jamieson, The Vryll Society and Whilk and Misky.

Having firmly established itself as the best festival to catch up and coming talent before they rocket up the lineups at subsequent summer festivals, Live At Leeds was voted ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards and continues to book only the best in emerging talent alongside established artists.
