“Can’t think of a better line-up of Indie legends to play with this summer!” Sea Girls said.

Sharing the news on social media via a message from Baird, they explained that he had been receiving treatment for an “incurable autoimmune disease”.
“I’ve been experiencing a lot of ups and downs in managing this bastard of a disease and after a lot of long chats with my doctor we’ve decided that the next step is surgery to remove the affected organ after which it should be much more manageable,” the statement read.

The band’s last album, ‘Keep On Smiling’, came out in September, described by NME in a three-star review as “buoyant indie with occasional stumbles”.
It added: “The Northern Irish trio continue to redefine their sound. The results are mixed: their rousing anthemics soar, though the slow jams don’t quite stick.”
The Wombats, meanwhile, recently announced a special reissue of their debut album ‘A Guide To Love, Loss & Desperation’ to mark its 15th anniversary.
