Camden Rocks Festival have announced that UK rockers Mallory Knox will play the festival that starts on June 2nd this summer in North London.

This is the only London show for the Cambridge band who join British rap metal band Hacktivist and rock rappers Crazy Town, who have also been announced to play today, joining Mercury-prize nominees Maxïmo Park, fabled post-punk originators Public Image Limited (PiL), acclaimed Scottish rockers Twin Atlantic, grebo gurus Pop Will Eat Itself and post-Sex Pistols legends The Professionals.

“Camden Rocks is one we’re really looking forward to,” say Mallory Knox ahead of the festival. “We fondly remember playing venues such as The Barfly all the way up to The Roundhouse in Camden. With this being our first show back in London in well over a year makes it a special one for us.”

22 other artists join the bill today including Dead!, The Bottom Line, Sleep Token, Airways, Sulpher, Create To Inspire, The Skinner Brothers, Bad Sign, The Bad Flowers, Cheap Meat, Lucie Barât, The Fallen State, Inklings, Deadly Circus Fire, Fierce Ideas, Desperate Measures, Sophie & the Giants, Death Valley Knights, Talia Dean, The Rising Souls, Strides, 7he7ouch and Natalie Shay.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
