Including Beach Slang, Nova Twins, Spanish Love Songs and many more.
2000Trees Festival have announced 36 new bands to the already stellar lineup of Jimmy Eat World, Knocked Loose, Creeper, Hot Milk & more.
Following on from their recent hugely acclaimed new album The Deadbeat Bang of Heartbreak City, as well as a European tour with Jawbreaker and US tour with The Goo Goo Dolls, Beach Slang return to 2000trees Festival for the first time since 2017. Expect Cheap Trick meets The Replacements style emotional and melodic scuzzy punk rock, as well as one of the most honest and hard-working frontmen in rock in the shape of guitarist/vocalist (and ‘Mr’ Beach Slang), James Alex.
Also announced today are Nova Twins. Refusing to conform to any template, the duo fuse bass-heavy, grimey rave sounds, taking inspiration from artists as divergent in style as N.E.R.D., The Prodigy, Missy Elliott, and New York Dolls. As such, the best friends have turned rock on its head, injecting their songs with boundless energy, barely controlled rage and heavy riffs. Nova Twins are capturing a unique moment in time with their genre-bending methods, capturing fans of all demographics with a riotous attitude and boundless resilience.
Californian five-piece punk band Spanish Love Songs will be making their 2000trees debut this summer. The band recently released their third album ‘Brave Faces Everyone,’ which has received rave reviews across the board and supported The Menzingers on their UK headline tour. You can expect brilliant melodies, soul-bearing lyrics and punk energy from this much-adored band.
“The album of the year so far for me is Brave Faces Everyone by Spanish Love Songs, and this is closely followed by the brilliant The Deadbeat Bang of Heartbreak City by Beach Slang. Absolute bangers both of them and I can’t wait to hear these songs in the sunshine at Upcote Farm!” says booker James Scarlett.
