Singer Sam McTrusty says: 'It's been a dream of ours to play Glastonbury.
Twin Atlantic are to take the place of Chromeo at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
Chromeo were originally due to perform from 9.15pm to 10.15pm on the John Peel Stage – the penultimate slot – on Saturday (June 28). They will no longer appear and will be replaced by Twin Atlantic.
Twin Atlantic singer Sam McTrusty says: “It’s been a dream of ours to play Glastonbury. It’s the biggest and probably most famous festival in the world so it’s genuinely an honour to be asked to play our songs and be a part of it all.”
“Being there this weekend is a massive achievement for us and will feel very special on Saturday night. We have been waiting for years and it falling within a week of playing Milton Keynes Bowl with Kings of Leon makes it all the more surreal. Hopefully you can join us for what will be a historic moment for our band.”
Twin Atlantic will release their second album on August 18 via Red Bull Records. It follows the 2011 release of their last album ‘Free’ and was recorded in Los Angeles with Jacknife Lee (U2, REM), and at Rockfield in Wales with Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters).

‘The Ones That I Love’
‘Heart And Soul’
‘Fall Into The Party’
‘Brothers And Sisters’
‘I Am An Animal’

‘Rest In Pieces’
