Grizzly Bear break news of England’s World Cup capitulation to Glastonbury

Brooklyn band play as England bomb out

Grizzly Bear had the unenviable job of going up against the England Vs Germany World Cup match this afternoon (June 27) at Glastonbury.

The Brooklyn-based outfit took to the Other Stage at 4pm, an hour after kick off in Bloemfontein when the score was still 2-1 to Germany.

“Hello everybody,” said singer and guitarist Daniel Rossen as the band took to the stage. “Thank you for coming, I know there’s a big game right now.”

Eighty minutes into the match bass player Chris Taylor held up a radio to his microphone, so the audience could hear the commentator announce, “As night falls, England‘s World Cup dreams die,” with the sfinal core 4-1 to Germany.

NME will be coming live from Glastonbury throughout the weekend. Head to NME.COM/glastonbury for the latest festival news.
