PUBLIC ENEMY GO HOME

Chuck D and the rest add another Homelands show, and hint at new material in the near future...

Public Enemy have been added to the bill of this year’s Scotland Homelands Festival at Straid Farm, Dalleagles, New Cumnock on June 3.

The band, who were already confirmed in January to play the English Homelands, will now be playing in Arena 01 at both sites of the 40,000 capacity, nine arena dance festival.

The festival will also feature live performances from Leftfield and Ian Brown.

Public Enemy played their first UK dates in three years last September, when they embarked on a three date mini-tour. A spokesperson for the band told nme.com that more live shows “were in the pipeline”, although no details were confirmed. She added that the band also plan to release a remix EP later in the year, featuring tracks from last July’s ‘There’s A Poison Goin On’, album.
