The Cribs announced to play Live at Leeds 2015 Festival
Kicking off the festival season and having already announced a huge lineup including Carl Barat and The Jackals, Dry The River, Dutch Uncles, Thurston Moore, Eagulls, Stormzy, Swim Deep and Hookworms, Live At Leeds are proud to announce the addition of The Cribs to the festival.
With their forthcoming sixth album ‘For All My Sisters’ due on March 23rd, the Wakefield trio are back after what feels like a far too lengthy absence. From the punk squall of seminal signature tune ‘Hey Scenesters!’ through to enlisting Smiths legend Johnny Marr for full length ‘Ignore The Ignorant’ they are a band that have consistently pushed the boundaries of indie music and their attitude befits the festival perfectly.

The Cribs’ Gary Jarman says:
“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 2 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 says:
"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.
