The line-up for this year’s Open’er Festival is expanding rapidly as more outstanding major acts confirm for 2013’s edition. Open’er is proud to now announce: Editors and Skunk Anansie, who both return with new material, the cult Modest Mouse and the sensational Alt-J!
Editors are set to bring their upcoming fourth album to some of the world’s biggest and best festivals this summer. Currently recording in Nashville, Tennessee, the band are putting the final touches to the record that will follow 2009’s In This Light and On This Evening (Papillon, You Don’t Know Love), 2007’s An End Has a Start (Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors, The Racing Rats) and 2005’s The Back Room (Munich, Bullets). The band will be showcasing new material from the upcoming album as well as performing songs taken from their entire back catalogue.
Skunk Anansie needs no introduction to rock fans. Their last concert at Open’er was an unbelievable display of charisma and rock’n’roll craftsmanship. We are really happy as they reformed after 8 years of studio and live silence, and were counting for more. And we got it. Before taking their break, Skunk Anansie released three multi-platinum albums: “Paranoid And Sunburnt” (1995), “Stoosh” (1996) and “Post Orgasmic Chill” (1999), selling over 5 million copies worldwide. Since their memorable performance on Gdynia airfield, Skunk Anansie released two albums: 2010’s “Wonderlustre” and “Black Traffic”, released last September. Now we finally get to hear the songs off their most recent album live.
Modest Mouse’s first time in Poland will be a real celebration for fans of American alternative rock. Thanks to them, Open’er will witness a historical event, not unlike three years ago, when Pavement came to Poland. While their music was by turns taut and elliptical, and the lyrics sometimes cryptic and introspective, Modest Mouse broke through to the mainstream audience. With legendary albums “This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About”, “The Lonesome Crowded West”, “The Moon & Antarctica” and successful releases “Good News For People Who Love Bad News” and Billboard #1 “We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank”, we are very happy and proud to welcome this cult band, and expect to hear a set of new songs live.
Alt-J could write last year off as the best in their lives. What is so awesome about their debut “An Awesome Wave” are their excellent ideas and compositions, they mix folk, hip-hop, indie-rock, Americana songwriting, Oriental music, and even psychedelic sounds common to a few bands in this year’s line-up. Their intelligent compositions reminded more imaginative critics of Radiohead, but Alt-J speak their own language. The titles and lyrics on their debut album carry count-less references to books, films, even famous photographers. “An Awesome Wave” was chosen as record of the year by France’s leading music journal Les Inrockuptibles, became #5 in NME’s ‘Best Of 2012’ poll, and only just lost to Bobby Womack in Clash Magazines best of poll.
