TRNSMT announce a fresh wave of acts

The Killers, Chvrches and Franz Ferdinand confirmed

TRNSMT continues with its extended transmission with a massively exciting artist announcement today. New headliner The Killers will be joined by CHVRCHES and Franz Ferdinand at TRNSMT 2018 on the closing festival date - Sunday 8th July 2018. These new acts join TRNSMT’s recent announcement of Kodaline and Krept x Konan, added to 29th and 30th June 2018 respectively.
These new acts join the already announced headliners Liam Gallagher and Stereophonics as well as acts including The Script, Courteeners, James Bay, Wolf Alice, Krept x Konan, Jessie J  and J Hus. TRNSMT 2018 is shaping up to be two of the hottest Scotish weekends next summer.
One of the most iconic bands of their generation, Las Vegas rockers The Killers will headline TRNSMT’s final transmission on Sunday 8th July. The group recently played a stunning sold-out show at The SSE Hydro to rave reviews, performing songs from their new LP Wonderful Wonderful alongside earlier, much loved hits. Wonderful Wonderful’s release continued the band’s record breaking unbroken streak of #1 albums and has propelled The Killers firmly back into the spotlight as one of the best rock bands in the world. With charismatic frontman Brandon Flowers centre stage, The Killers will treat TRNSMT fans to a career-spanning set drawn from a truly enviable back catalogue that includes ‘Mr Brightside’, ‘Somebody Told Me’, ‘When You Were Young’, ‘Human’ and most recent hits ‘The Man’ and ‘Run For Cover’.

Synth-pop phenomenon CHVRCHES will make a Glasgow Green debut in July, as they join the line-up on Sunday 8th July.  An especially important slot for the Glasgow band, the Lauren Mayberry fronted trio will return to their hometown after an incredible six years in the industry. Their debut album in 2013 proved CHVRCHES were turning the Scottish music scene on its head, blending Lauren’s mesmerising vocals with catchy indie-pop hooks and lyrics. Sophomore album Every Open Eye showcased hits such as ‘Leave a Trace’ and ‘Clearest Blue’ , the final single ‘Bury It’ saw the band team up with Paramore superstar Hayley Williams in a brilliant collaboration.

TRNSMT will be a hometown show to remember for indie rockers Franz Ferdinand, who return to the Glasgow stage once again with a fresh new line-up. The indie heroes have marked the beginning of a new era and are veering towards a vibrant synth-based electronic sound on ‘Always Ascending’, the first single from the upcoming album. Nothing short of a rebirth, the album’s 10 songs are a triumphant recasting of the group, bursting with fresh ideas and vigorous sonic experimentation. Franz Ferdinand stormed onto the scene in 2002, with critics hailing them as a post-punk revival band who have been both Grammy and Brit Award nominated for singles ‘Take Me Out’ and ‘Do You Want To’, which, over 10 years after their release, are as popular now as they have ever been. When their debut album won a Mercury Prize, it was clear Franz Ferdinand were here to stay, and in 2018 they are sure to smash their set at TRNSMT Festival with their epic new sounds.

“We are truly thrilled with The Killers as our closing headliner for TRNSMT 2018. We can’t wait to welcome the band to Glasgow Green for the first time, after a phenomenal show at The SSE Hydro in November. Stay tuned for more from TRNSMT, because we still have two incredible days of music to announce!”
