The Cribs added to Pyramid Rock 2012

The Cribs have been added to the line-up for this year’s Pyramid Rock Festival in Philip Island, Victoria.

The UK outfit, who last toured Australia in 2010, are among eight additions to the Pyramid bill, unveiled via Twitter tonight. They include The Amity Affliction, Brown Horn Orchestra, Mat McHugh & The Seperatista Sound System (formerly The Beautiful Girls), The Only, Pez, Redcoats and Winter People.

The Cribs’ fifth studio album, In The Belly of The Brazen Bull was released in May through Shock. Their first album since the departure of legendary guitarist Johnny Marr, it was described by FL as ‘a twisted affair brimming with ideas’
