Modest Mouse Added To O2 Wirelessby Contributor | 25 May 2007
Modest Mouse and The Thrills have been added to the ever-expanding line-up at the O2 Wireless Festival.
Johnny Marr's new band scored a number one album in the US with We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank and the record has also fared well in Europe.
Isaac Brock's band will be joined by Irish indie group the Thrills, who will be releasing their third album Teenager this summer.
Modest Mouse will play Hyde Park in June 14th along with the White Stripes and the Bees. The band will then play the Leeds Wireless event on the 15th.
Sally Cowdry, marketing director of O2, said: "The O2 Wireless Festival goes from strength to strength and this year's line-up further cements its reputation as one of the UK's top music events."
The London Wireless takes place from June 14th to June 17th and includes sets from Faithless, Klaxons, LCD Soundsystem, Daft Punk, the Kaiser Chiefs and the Cribs.
Leeds runs from June 15th to 17th and includes the same bands as well as the Twang, the Rakes and Good Shoes, who will also play slots on the smaller stages at London's event.
The White Stripes will be debuting material from their new album Icky Thump and so far Wireless is their only UK festival date.
