Young Knives win the right to open Channel 4 stage

The new band triumph in the Road To V…

Following in footsteps of GLASTONBURY, V FESTIVALS will feature new band competition winners this weekend (August 20-21).

The Channel 4 stage today (August 21) in Chelmsford and tomorrow in Stafford will be opened by The Young Knives.

The band beat over 1,000 other entries in the Road To V competition to play alongside the likes of Kaiser Chiefs and Doves.

However this weekend marks a double celebration for the group, as along with their V appearances, they have announced that they have signed a record deal with Transgressive.

The band are now set to begin recording a single, ’The Decision’, for a November release, while their debut album will follow next year.
