Further Support Acts Announced for The Killers at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park is delighted to announce that six further support acts will be joining rock giants The Killers this summer for their huge sold out London show.

The Las Vegas group’s summer return will give fans an early glimpse of material from their hugely anticipated new album, alongside their much-loved classics, all in the unbeatable setting of Hyde Park. Already on the killer line up for 8th July are Elbow, Tears for Fears and White Lies.

Newly added to the line up of the summer are California indie rockers Cold War Kids, fresh off the back of their latest album release, “L.A. Divine”, in April this year. Known for their bluesy sounds and timeless hits, including “First” and “Louder the Ever”, their performance is guaranteed to be unmissable.

Hailing from Brighton, British Sea Power have been likened to Arcade Fire and The Cure, with their intense live performances. With their latest release “Let The Dancers Inherit the Party” achieving yet more critical acclaim, Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park is incredibly excited to add British Sea Power to the family this year.

Denmark natives Mew returned this year with album “Visuals”, having burst onto the indie scene back in 1995 with their dream-like pop. With critics referring to the new album as capturing a creative peak, the band show no signs of slowing down and will win many more fans at Hyde Park.

Indie rockers Mystery Jets are back after a triumphant year in support of album “Curve Of The Earth”, which was featured in their brilliant set at last year’s Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park. They have just been nominated for a prestigious Ivor Novello award for the song “Telomere” and will be very popular returning heroes this summer.

Irish four-piece rock band The Strypes have established a loyal fan base since their formation in 2010. Citing classic bands such as The Rolling Stones and The Jam as their influences, the sharp suited youngsters will showcase their third album “Spitting Image”, due for release in June.

Also added the bill is Australian singer-songwriter Alex Cameron. He gained cult status in recent years with his live performances, featuring his epic portrayal of a failed entertainer. Cameron released his debut solo album ‘Jumping The Shark’ last year, a synth pop gem that explores stories of tragic wannabes and failures with touching sympathy.

Special guests announced for Green Day at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park

Just when you thought a date with Green Day at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park couldn’t get any better, eight mega bands have been announced, completing the essential rock line up of the summer. 

Rancid will be hitting Hyde Park in continued support of Green Day’s massive Revolution Radio world tour. Founded by 1980s punk veterans Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman, Rancid is often credited, along with Green Day, for reviving mainstream interest in punk rock during the mid-1990s.

Also joining Green Day is New York’s wildest Gypsy punk group, Gogol Bordello. The band rose to mainstream fame in 2005 with the release of their thunderous track Start Wearing Purple, taken from the their third album ‘Gypsy Punks: Underdog World Strike’. The band’s latest album ‘Pura Vida Conspiracy’ was released in 2013. Its title derives from a Spanish slang phrase for “pure life”, a theme that undoubtedly resonates with the band. Known for their theatrical stage shows and the immense force of energy that is Ukranian front man Euguene Katz, Gogol Bordello are guaranteed to set Hyde Park alight.

Sweden’s coolest garage band The Hives will be warming up the crowds for Green Day on 1st July. Hailed as one of the best live rock bands of the 21st century, The Hives stormed to stardom in 2000 with the release of album  “Veni Vidi Vicious”, including infectious hit Hate To Say I Told You So. Hot off the heels of their European and UK tour this spring, howlin’ lead singer Pelle Almqvis, plus Nicholaus Arson, Vigilante Carlstroem, Chris Dangerous and The Johan and Only will make their debut Hyde Park appearance this summer.

Australian punk rockers The Living End will also be taking to the stage in support of Green Day. The trio is gearing up for Hyde Park with a tour of their homeland in March before bringing fresh material to the UK from their brand new album “Shift” (out May 13th). Crowds can expect exciting new tunes to combine with classic fan favourites Prisoner of Society and Roll On.

Beach Slang first made their mark on the scene with hit Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken? and have continued to produce punk rock anthems ever since. Known for their unrestrained and even more unapologetic onstage presence, Beach Slang’s set is guaranteed to bring the right amount of chaos to Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park this summer.

American punk rockers SWMRS have taken influence from the Beach Boys, The Ramones and everything in between to form their very own brand of rock n’ roll. With a series of profound releases since their formation in 2004, this year will see their latest record Drive North hit the UK in March and then on to the London’s Hyde Park in July. 

From their beginnings in drummer Jacob Faber’s basement in Brooklyn, Sunflower Bean have come a long way. Having rounded off 2016 with a UK tour in support of their debut album “Human Ceremony”, the trio are making a welcome return to London to give us one hell of a show.

Last but not least, new kids on the block Public Access TV have been creating a buzz on their musical journey so far – and for good reason. Having released their debut album in September last year, the band has kick-started 2017 with a US tour and will no doubt be ready to land in London and show us what they’ve got!

Release date for Blondie's new Album 'Pollinator' is revealed

Blondie lights up 2017 with the release of their 11th studio album ‘Pollinator’ by BMG on May 5th. An incredible new record and a modern take on the classic, vintage sound of one of the world’s most influential and legendary bands. 

From the new album comes the lead single “Fun” which is available to stream and download now. 

“Fun” co writer and TV On the Radio’s Dave Sitek, perhaps more a descendent of Blondie’s New York post-punk legacy, returns them to a 21st Century Studio 54 with the new single. With Debbie Harry and the band sounding better than ever, Blondie’s euphoric new track plays like the best party ever thrown, and captures that unique combination of their enviable cool and sheer melodic joy. 

Blondie’s classic writing duo of Chris Stein and Debbie Harry are at the heart of Pollinator’s creation – with “Doom Or Destiny” and “Love Level”, while keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen’s two tracks (“Already Naked” / “Too Much”) prove the band continues to evolve almost song by song. Blondie’s founding drummer Clem Burke provides the unmistakably thrilling propulsion throughout.

New support acts announced for British Summertime Hyde Park

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park adds three major acts to its line up for one of the biggest shows of 2017. On Friday June 30th, Phil Collins will be taking to the stage in Hyde Park as part of his Not Dead Yet: Live tour – one of his first onstage appearances in nearly a decade.

Joining Collins on this momentous day in Hyde Park is one of the most trailblazing and influential bands of our time, Blondie. With pioneering front woman/songwriter Debbie Harry, guitarist/conceptual mastermind Chris Stein and powerhouse drummer Clem Burke, along with newer band mates Leigh Foxx, guitarist Tommy Kessler and keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen, the band are sounding stronger than ever.

During a career spanning four decades, Blondie have delivered a lifetime of smash hits including Heart of Glass, Dreaming, Tide Is High, Maria, Sunday Girl, Hanging on the Telephone, Rapture, One Way or Another, Call Me… the list goes on. Since their New York beginnings in the 70s, Blondie have dominated the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, selling over 40 million records in the process. Their chart-topping success, fearless spirit and rare longevity led to an induction into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2006 

With their much-anticipated new album due this year, Blondie are set to debut brand new songs for their 2017 tour dates, and show festival-goers why they belong at the top.

Supporting his former band mate is fellow Genesis star and longtime friend Mike Rutherford, with his supergroup Mike + The Mechanics. Since their formation in 1984, the band has sold over 10 million records worldwide. Their major hits include; Silent RunningAll I Need Is A Miracle, Word Of MouthAnother Cup of Coffee and the unforgettable Over My Shoulder – to name a few….

Starsailor burst onto the scene in 2001 with their smash hit single Fever, earning them a Brit Award for ‘Best New Band’ the same year. The band has released four studio albums since; scoring ten Top 40 hit singles in the UK. Following a five-year hiatus in 2009, Starsailor (James Walsh, James Stelfox, Ben Byrne and Barry Westhead), returned for a triumphant world tour. This year, the Indie-rock quartet will have crowds singing along to the hits including Good Souls and Silence Is Easy, all in the wonderful summer setting of Hyde Park.

Also headlining at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2017 is Green Day (1st July), Justin Bieber (2nd July), Kings of Leon (6th July), The Killers (8th July) and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (9th July).
