A whole host of huge names have today been announced as big-ticket supports for Death Cab For Cutie and The Postal Service, who are set to co-headline this summer’s All Points East on Sunday 25th August.
Among the new bands are ’00s icons Gossip (who DIY recently spoke to for our December 2023 / January 2024 print issue), indie-pop mainstays Phoenix, and alt-rock powerhouses Sleater-Kinney, who have just marked the release of their 11th album ‘Little Rope’. Also on the bill are The Decemberists, Yo La Tengo, Teenage Fanclub, Wednesday, and Soft Launch, so crowds will be frankly spoiled for choice when it comes to the Victoria Park fest.
As for the headliners, Ben Gibbard’s outfits - who first joined forces for a huge co-headline tour of the US earlier this year - will be celebrating the 20th anniversaries of two of their iconic albums; DCFC’s fourth full-length ‘Transatlanticism’, and The Postal Service’s only record to date, ‘Give Up’. The show will see each group performing their respective album in full, and will follow on from their recently-announced US tour, which kicks off in April.
The two US bands join the likes of Loyle Carner, and LCD Soundsystem, who’ve already been confirmed to headline dates of All Points East’s 2024 residency. They play on 17th and 23rd August, respectively.
