Arctangent organisers have announced 21 new acts to their 2018 line-up. The new additions include “Curse These Metal Hands” – a special collaboration between Pijn & Conjurer.

“When ATG & Holy Roar approached us to do a collaboration, it was something that hadn’t really occurred to either band. We’d played a few shows together and were certainly mutual fans but we had to sit down and really think about whether this was feasible. After a pretty intense 12 hours of jamming and writing, we emerged with a track that will form the basis of our performance with the rest currently being written. This sounds nothing like either band and is arguably more expansive and ambitious than either of us have gone before – we’re honoured to have been asked to contribute to ATG 2018 and are excited to bring something new to the most exciting festival in the UK.” says Conjurer.

The full list of new additions reads as follows:

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.
