Delphic's Rick Boardman says he wants his band to become the "kings of dance" at this year's Reading And Leeds Festivals.

Speaking to NME.COM about Delphic's appearance at the festival, Boardman said he wants his band to take the title over LCD Soundsystem, as both acts are playing the NME/Radio 1 Stage on the same day.

Asked if he is looking forward to playing alongside James Murphy's group, Boardman joked: "Absolutely, but only one act will reign superior as the kings of dance. Get your cowbells out..."

Boardman added that he's particularly looking forward to the Leeds leg of the August 27-29 bash.

"We played the NME tent last year either first or second slot and it wet our appetite for the festival this year. I always lived a bit too far away from Glastonbury, so Leeds was my festival of choice when I was younger," he explained.
