Frank Turner has been added to the bill for this year's Live at Leeds festival and is set to play a rare solo show without his usual backing band The Sleeping Souls.

The festival is due to take place around various venues in Leeds between May 2 and May 5, with the majority of live bands performing on Saturday, May 3. So far it has also confirmed the likes of Albert Hammond Jr, Drenge, Courtney Barnett, Los Campesinos! and Wolf Alice. The full line up for the event can be found here.

Live at Leeds has been running for the past seven years and has played host to an array of artists in the early stages of their careers including Wild Beasts (2007), Metronomy (2008) and The Maccabees, Mumford and Sons and Bombay Bicycle Club (2009). Tickets for this year's event are priced at £25.00 for the main Saturday music day. The event is also hosting a number of separately ticketed events including gigs from Dum Dum Girls, Blood Red Shoes and Kodaline.

Frank Turner, meanwhile, recently completed a headline arena tour around the UK, playing the largest gigs of his career including a night at London's O2.

Ahead of the gigs, the singer - whose last LP was 2013's 'Tape Deck Heart' - released a new track entitled 'Sweet Albion Blues'. The track featured on recent EP 'Polaroid Picture', which also featured covers of tracks by Biffy Clyro and Frightened Rabbit.

Frank Turner is also set to play a host of festivals this summer including Sonisphere (July 4-6) and Wakestock (July 11-13).
