The End of the Road Festival has confirmed Gene Clark's No Other Band, with members of Beach House, Grizzly Bear and Fleet Foxes as a headliner for this year's festival. The Gene Clark No Other Band sees Beach House's Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally, Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold, Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen and ex-Fairport Convention member Iain Matthews come together with members of Wye Oak and Celebration to reconstruct the Byrds’ Gene Clark’s 1974 masterpiece No Other.
Beach House have said of the show, which toured in the US earlier this year: “No Other it feels like a special moment in Gene Clark's songwriting. Throughout the years, many have dug up the record and fallen in love with it. We, Beach House, are certainly two of those people and we hope that playing the record live will spread the album even more. We feel incredibly excited and lucky that we will be working with such a stellar group of singers, friends, and musicians without whose help this complicated and unconventional tour would never be possible.”

The Subways are one of the headliners at the Camden Rocks Festival Saturday 31st May 2014.
Charlotte of the band said "It feels like ages since we've played the UK and what better way to start the comeback than with Camden Rocks. The Electric Ballroom is one of the few venues in London we haven't played and I remember watching bands there as a teenager! We all feel a little like caged animals at the moment and it'll be awesome to be back on stage again".
Over two hundred new and established 'guitar bands' will be performing across twenty venues in Camden Town on 31st May
