All the Young

The Wombats have announced All The Young will be special guest support at their Delamere Forest gig this summer as part of Forestry Commission Live Music. The Stoke-On-Trent based indie-rock band, All The Young has been heralded in lead NME Radar features, named as one of XFM’s 12 for 2012 and tipped for the top by Morrissey.

The Wombats classic debut album ‘Guide To Love, Loss And Desperation’ generated indie dancefloor smashes ‘Kill The Director’, ‘Let’s Dance To Joy Division’, ‘Backfire At The Disco’ and ‘Moving To New York’. The band’s latest album release, ‘This Modern Glitch’ has provided three of the band’s biggest airplay hits to date with its first singles ‘Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)’, ‘Jump into the Fog’ and ‘Techno Fan’.

In what is a local gig for the band, Delamere Forest will provide a stunning backdrop for the outdoor performance, providing a natural amphitheatre set in a forest clearing. Full bar and catering services will be available with ample parking provided on site and Delamere train station nearby.
