The latest raft of names added to the bill for this year’s event also sees Gnarwolves, Blood Red Shoes, Papa Roach, Crossfaith, Young Guns and Tonight Alive join the Main Stage line-up.
The Horrors lead the additions to the NME/Radio 1 Stage alongside The Kooks, Twin Shadow, Lonely The Brave, Twin Atlantic and Mallory Knox.
Speaking about their appearance, Horrors frontman Faris Badwan tells NME that fans can expect plenty of material from the band’s new album ‘Luminous’, released in May. “One of my favourite things about playing live is watching our songs develop,” he says.
Badwan continues: “As we play them more and more, they evolve naturally and warp in a way you can’t predict. We’re doing a cover of a song we really love. And we’re trying to work out the best way to turn the album into live songs.”
Other artists added to the Reading and Leeds Festivals line-up today (April 23) include: AlunaGeorge, Gesaffelstein, Duke Dumont, Snake Hips and The Glitch Mob on the Radio 1 Dance Stage.
Brody Dalle will perform in The Pit (formerly The Lock Up Stage) on a bill which now also includes Gogol Bordello, Slaves, PUP and Every Time I Die.
Meanwhile, Palma Violets, Band of Skulls and Augustines have been named as the three headline acts for the Festival Republic Stage.
Paramore, Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys and Blink-182 will headline Reading and Leeds Festivals 2014. It will be both Queens of The Stone Age and Paramore’s only UK festival appearances of the summer.
