Slam Dunk organisers have announced the remaining bands for the festival this coming May.
UK post rock 6 piece Devil Sold His Soul make a return to Slam Dunk this year for only their 2nd ever performance at the festival.
Unfortunately, The King Blues had to pull out of last year's Slam Dunk Festival, but this year organisers have secured the very first UK festival performance of the band's frontman, Itch.
Joining Andrew McMahon (Something Corporate / Jacks Mannequin) and Jonny Craig (Emarosa / Dance Gavin Dance) on the 'Solo' Stage lineup will be 7 others from the ska, pop punk, rock and indie rock worlds. William Beckett (The Academy Is) will be debuting his first solo UK show at Slam Dunk this year.
Chas Palmer Williams of Lightyear fame will be there to hold the flag for Ska fans alike. With an already stellar ska punk lineup with legends King Prawn / Spunge he will be a welcome addition to this stage.
Gavin Butler (The Blackout) will be there once again playing songs from his debut EP and maybe the odd Blackout track too. Ace Enders (The Early November / I Can Make A Mess) who not only is the lead singer of The Early November but is a solo performer in his own right, releasing a number of solo albums under guises of 'I can Make a Mess (like Nobody's Business) and 'A Million Different People'. Expect to hear a selection from this talented artists back catalogue.
Other additions include Class Of 92 (Matty from A Loss For Words), Sophomore (Alex From Decade) and Marc Halls (Hey Vanity).
Slam Dunk Festival takes place at Leeds University on Saturday 25th May. Tickets are all sold out.
