Arguably the band of the summer, the last few months have seen them pack out tents at most of the major U.K. festivals. Ecstatic performances at both T in the Park and Latitude were followed by a triumphant Reading appearance where they played late-afternoon to over 20,000 people in the Radio 1 tent and were hailed as number 1 band of the festival by the NME.
