Since the demise of ATP, Shellac have been in search of a new UK festival to play. They've found one: ArcTanGent. The bill for this year's event, taking place over the weekend of 16th to 18th August near Bristol, is topped by Steve Albini's crew, who will be appearing alongside the likes of Pelican, Rolo Tomassi, And So I Watch You From Afar and Alpha Male Tea Party.
The latter will be playing rather closer to home before then, at a similarly minded celebration of all things noise-rocky in Liverpool at the end of next month. The many highlights of WRONG's line-up include Future Of The Left, Mugstar, Sex Swing, Grey Hairs and Rocket Recordings stalwarts Gnod and Hey Colossus.
