Pendulum Are Back And Headlining SW4!
Plus find out more of the first wave of acts just announced...
**Major festival news incoming** If you've got a copy of Hold Your Colour anywhere, dust it off because you'll need it this summer...
They've been teasing their return for the past week and it's just been revealed that the mighty Pendulum will be back this summer to headline SW4 Festival on Clapham Common, their first live date in our nation's capital in six years!
Last seen live in London in 2011, it's just been announced that Pendulum will close the main stage on Saturday 26th August and with SW4 promising us this year they'll be "mixing state of the art production with increased sound levels," naturally this has got us all very excited indeed.
Pendulum's last studio project was 2010's Immersion, featuring 'Watercolour', 'Witchcraft' and the epic two-part 'The Island'. In the intervening years Pendulum have been keeping their name alive with DJ sets and you'll remember band members Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen broke off and made a huge success of the raucous side project Knife Party, who actually headlined last year's main stage at SW4 too with their live spectacle 'The Crow'.
Welcome back guys!
Also announced today in the first wave of acts are Sigma (Live), Duke Dumont, Hannah Wants, MistaJam and Sonny Fodera vs Low Steppa.
Is it summer yet?
WATCH PENDULUM'S 'GRANITE' HERE:
This is a new time, with a different kind, they are the future.
The only one!
This is the final call for the setting sun when they get closer.
Now with a fall from grace, thy will be done, the show is over.
It's a new dawn!
Just leave this place behind,
I'll clear your bloodshot mind.
They only wanted your life on demand.
This is a better way!
They are standing by, no time to hide, no meeting half way.
You were sucking life through the needles eye, this is a new day.
And they have won...
We will surrender now, or be outdone, left in the open.
It's the cooling of the risen, they are the future.
When all your fears combined, the manifest was refined.
I know you really tried to understand.
This is a new age!
