Festivals: The Distillers announce comeback at Shaky Knees Festival alongside The National, Jack White and more

The Atlanta festival runs over three days in early May.

At the very start of the year, The Distillers posted a new teaser video, suggesting that they were to make a comeback.

The news has now been confirmed, with the band appearing alongside the likes of Jack White, Queens Of The Stone Age, The National and more on the line-up for this year’s Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, Georgia.

Fleet Foxes, Japandroids, Alvvays, Parquet Courts, Waxahatchee and more also head to the Georgia city’s Central Park on the weekend of 4th-6th May.

Brody Dalle’s group broke up in 2006, with Dalle herself and guitarist Tony Bevilacqua going on to form Spinnerette.

They released three studio albums between 2000 and 2003.
