Richard Ashcroft’s Splendour leak
Though the official Splendour line up is still to be officially confirmed we can add another name to our growing list of acts for the festival – former Verve leadman Richard Ashcroft and his new band The United Nations of Sound.
The leak has come via Ashcroft’s official website where the news section reveals that “Richard Ashcroft’s new band RPA & The United Nations of Sound have confirmed their first live dates [including] the bills of Summer Sonic Festival in Japan and Splendour in The Grass Festival in Australia.”
The bands debut album, intriguingly produced by Chicago hip-hop pioneer No I.D, is due for release in early June.
Looks like the Splendour bill is shaping up rather nicely.
