One of Britain’s best live bands Stereophonics have announced Manchester band PINS will be joining them on their upcoming stadium shows this summer.

The all-female five-piece are joining an already exciting line-up with singer-song writer Jake Bugg and Aberdare Welsh rockers Fireroad confirmed to perform. The shows take place at The Racecourse Ground Wrexham on Saturday, June 2 which is sold out, and at Cardiff City Stadium a week later on Saturday, June 9.

PINS’ most recent single ‘Serve The Rich’ (produced by The Kills’ Jamie Hince) follows on from their 2017 ‘Bad Thing’ EP release, which included the single Aggrophobe featuring Iggy Pop.

Jake Bugg is also currently on an acoustic UK tour of his own and will join the band in June for what promises to be two unforgettable shows.

Jake recently released album number four ‘Hearts That Strain’ five years after the release of his acclaimed self-titled debut album.

These two special outdoor summer shows follow a busy schedule for Stereophonics who have already this year played 9 European dates and are now currently in the middle of 15-date sell-out arena tour across UK & Ireland.

Stereophonics latest record, ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ came 20 years after their debut ‘Word Gets Around’ – the band’s tenth studio album follows the previous release in 2015, ‘Keep The Village Alive’, which was their sixth chart-topping album to go alongside countless music awards spanning over two decades.

The summer 2018 dates represent a real homecoming for Stereophonics, revisiting two venues with such a strong history for the band.

The dynamic four-piece first played Cardiff City Stadium back in 2010 and have always been guaranteed a rapturous reception ever since, including at a sell-out summer show in 2016.

Stereophonics are Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar) and Richard Jones (bass), the two founding band members joined by Adam Zindani (guitar) and Jamie Morrison (drums) as well as long-term keyboardist Tony Kirkham for live shows.

When performing at the Racecourse Stadium in the same year they become the first artists to play a live show there since the 1982 Wrexham Festival, and the show treated fans to a truly memorable night.

Speaking about the latest show announcements, Kelly said: “It's a privilege to have the following we have in Wales.

"The fans have stuck with us and believed in us no matter what path we have tried.

"We try to push ourselves out of our comfort zone and from doing that we see so many new young fans that have come on board also.

"The stadium shows are a celebration of 20 years of music.

"Songs that have come honestly and truthfully and then I can't believe I get to hear all those people singing them back to us. I can't wait to play in front of the crowd that made us."
