Wire Expand Drill Festival Lineup

(Prog) Wire have announced an additional set of bands for their Drill festival in Brighton - which they hope will "challenge preconceptions" surrounding the band.

The event runs across multiple venues from December 4 to 7 and features an exclusive tie-in set in which Wire and Swans will unite to perform Wire's 1991 release Drill.

Recently added acts include British Sea Power with the Bournemouth Symphony Brass Quintet, Young Fathers, These New Puritans and many others. They join the previously-announced Goblin - performing their soundtrack for horror movie Suspiria - Savages, Toy, Gold Panda and more. Further bands are to be added to the bill.

Wire say: "The concepts behind Drill festivals are to challenge preconceptions of Wire; to show-case their impact on and relationship with groups and artists from younger generations; and to connect with new and established artists whose work they find inspiring and feel that they have a kinship with."
