The Australian music festival Splendour in the Grass 2016 schedule is announced. The Avalanches, an Australian electronic music band has been reformed for this grand music gala. The Melbourne group will perform in the show, to be held between July 22 and 24.
Sources say that the band has not released a music album since 2000’s “Since I Left You.”
Now, the fans are really doubtful about who remains in the band because the original band has been split. Members DJ Dexter, Frontier Psychiatrist, and Darren Seltmann have left “The Avalanches.” Dexter considered being the designer behind the thousands of samples used to create “Since I Left You” whereas Psychiatrist and Seltmann had been the band’s original vocalist during the band’s early days.
“The Avalanches” now comprises old faces including Robbie Chater and Toni Di Blasi. At the same time, James De La Cruz, who joined the band in 1999, has rejoined.
It was a DJ set at Vivid Festival in Sydney in 2011 where “The Avalanches” appeared most recent and while they have long teased a second album, their last musical output was a remix of Hunters and Collector’s Talking to a Stranger in September 2013, reports News.
News further reveals that Jess Ducrou, co-founder of Splendour in the Grass festival and boss Paul Pitticio have asked The Avalanches to play at their event “pretty well every year” since the event started in 2001.
Ducrou stated, “This year, to our absolute surprise, they said yes. We don’t really have any more details to share about their performance at this stage but we are beyond excited that we’ll have them exclusively at Splendour in the Grass 2016.”
Apart from “The Avalanches” the music aficionados will also get to see a number of popular international bands hitting the stage at Splendour in the Grass 2016.
New York rock band “The Strokes,” renowned U.K. band “The Cure,” Iconic Australian musician “Flume” and more are listed.
