Brighton's Great Escape festival confirms more names...
Before we tell you about the rest of the names, we're very excited to confirm that Errors - who've released one of the albums of the year, so far - will be headlining one of DiS' three curated nights at the festival.
We've also confirmed the first UK date for Eight And A Half, the new project from some of the chaps from The Stills and Broken Social Scene, who make a haunting whirl, which sounds like this:
They join the previously announced DiS stage line-up which so far includes When Saints Go Machine, College, Nils Frahm, A Winged Victory for the Sullen, The British Expeditionary Force and new-comers The Soft.
