The band, who have just released their second album ‘Primary Colours’ to critical acclaim, will perform in the
Big Top on the Saturday (12 September).
Blitzen Trapper, Brakes, Shearwater and Vetiver will also play the three-day festival with The Duke And The King who will perform with Simon Felice from The Felice Brothers.
Wye Oak and Lonely, Dear have also been confirmed today, joining headliners Explosions In The Sky and Fleet Foxes, with the Sunday night bill topper yet to be announced.
Speaking about today’s additions, organiser Simon Taffe said: “Each year End of the Road has basically been as close as possible to a live party featuring all our current favourite bands. I absolutely love the new Horrors album and can’t wait to see them live – as Saturday nights go, this will be an amazing one.”
The Acorn, Malcolm Middleton, Okkervil River and Steve Earle are among the other acts confirmed.

The festival has a capacity of just 5000, allowing organisers to concentrate on the finer details of the event which make the event so special. The corporate-free festival also gives its acts longer sets to play in a bid to encourage artistic freedom, allowing fans to focus on the music rather than a brand.
End Of The Road also includes an array of organic, local and fair-trade food, good beer, environmental and sustainability schemes as well as 'caring and well-mannered staff'.
End Of The Road won Best Small Festival at the UK Festival Awards in 2006.
