Pop Punk Pile Up Festival organisers have confirmed that Mallory Knox will be joining Saturday’s co-headliners alongside the Bottom Line. Having recently announced the departure of frontman Mikey Chapman, former back up vocalist Sam Douglas is now stepping up to the frontman position and the band have become a quartet.

Alongside Mallory Knox, MC Lars and Koo Koo Kanga Roo will be Sunday nights afterparty guest sets, which will take place next door to the festival home The Venue at the Riverside. “The Riverside was a former music venue and once played host to Riff Media’s club shows. So, it’s a huge pleasure to be able to incorporate with the venue once more. We still have plans to add for Friday and Saturday after parties with guests still to be announced soon. So watch this space!” states festival organiser Adam Ruane.

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.
