While we await the line up news from this years eagerly anticipated Splendour In The Grass 2012 by sizeing up rumours, gossips and general musings, the promoters of the festival have announced their first official band today.
UK buzz band Zulu Winter were scheduled to play an Australian tour in April, but the tour postponement was announced today along with news that they will play their Australian debut at this year’s Splendour In The Grass after massive live shows at SXSW which saw the likes of Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons and Kaiser Chiefs checking out their shows.
The ‘ones to watch’ according to NME and Pitchfork et al, are set to complete a European tour before heading our way for their Aussie debut performance.
Zulu Winter’s debut album ‘Language’ is also due out May 11
