Ahead of the release of their fourth album ‘Antiphon’, Texan band Midlake are set for a date at the 2013 Sligo Live Festival on Friday 25th October.

The Texas band’s 2006 release ‘The Trails of Van Occupanther’ had fans and bloggers re-evaluating dormant ancestors like Fleetwood Mac, America, Crosby Stills Nash and Young and Bread – music that has been embedded in the indie world’s unconscious (Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear) ever since. On their 2010 release ‘The Courage of Others’, MIDLAKE reinvented themselves with influences from British folk to Russian Cinema – and received rave reviews culminating in the band being named Best Live Act by Mojo Magazine. Set to release their fourth album this November, audiences at Sligo Live will get to hear from the band’s highly anticipated fourth album Antiphon, set for release on November 4th. 

Sligo Live 2013 will present a stellar array of top quality music  spanning 6 days over the October Bank Holiday Weekend, October 23rd – 28th 2013. Now widely considered  Ireland’s premiere folk, roots and Indie festival, Sligo Live 2013 brings together established Irish and international acts with some of the best emerging talent on the scene. 

Midlake will perform at Sligo Live on Friday October 25th at IT Sligo’s Knocknarea Arena. Tickets on sale now from www.sligolive.ie
