2000trees Festival booker James Scarlett said of this year’s line-up: “Once again we’re bringing a line-up of 2000trees legends, including the likes of Boston Manor and The Xcerts, to open the festival on the Wednesday night for those of you lucky enough to get your hands on a 4-Day ticket.”
“We’re also stoked to be welcoming so many bands like The Gaslight Anthem, Manchester Orchestra, Hot Mulligan and Better Lovers to the festival for the very first time. 2000trees 2024 is already shaping up to be something truly special – don’t sleep on it!”
Lead singer Andy Hull and guitarist Robert McDowell sat down in the SiriusXM studio and transformed Cher’s 1998 electro-pop hit into an indie ballad. Their cover was a slow rendition focused on melody and vocals.
This cover comes days after the band’s release of their new EP ‘The Valley Of Vision’, a follow up to their sixth studio album, ‘The Million Masks of God’.
The album received a four-star review from NME and was described as “a record that traverses every corner of their sound, from beefy rock songs to string-assisted grandeur and acoustic bliss, further cementing their place as an under appreciated band to treasure.”
