End Of The Road have revealed the third headliner for this year will be The Gene Clark No Other Band featuring Beach House's Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally, Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold, Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen and ex-Fairport Convention member Iain Matthews together with members of Wye Oak and Celebration.
The collaboration sees them join forces to reconstruct the Byrds’ Gene Clark’s 1974 album 'No Other'. Beach House said of the show, which toured in the US earlier this year - “No Other it feels like a special moment in Gene Clark's songwriting. Throughout the years, many have dug up the record and fallen in love with it.
"We, Beach House, are certainly two of those people and we hope that playing the record live will spread the album even more. We feel incredibly excited and lucky that we will be working with such a stellar group of singers, friends, and musicians without whose help this complicated and unconventional tour would never be possible.”
