Lamb are set to perform at Bazant Phoda 2011, when it returns to Trencin in Slovakia from 7-9 July.

They will be joining huge names from across the globe including Moby, Magnetic Man, Deus, Lila Downs and Beirut.

The alternative band, made up of Barlow and Rhodes, were one of the leading electro bands at the turn of the millennium.

After success with a number of albums such as ‘Lamb’, ‘Fear of Fours’ and ‘What Sound’, the band went their separate ways in 2004 to work independently.

After working on their own projects for a number of years, the band re-united in 2009 and have made appearances at festival such as The Big Chill and Beautiful Days Festival.

Talking about why the band decided to reunite, Lou Rhodes said: “I had a conversation with Andy on the phone end of summer 2010. Andy told me he really missed Lamb and asked me to give him one good reason why we shouldn’t do another album. And I just couldn’t really come up with one.

“We were always saying we were not going to work on a new album until there is something new to say. And the time has come.”

Lamb’s upcoming album, ‘5’, is set for release on the 5 May 2011.

Bazant Phoda tickets are priced at 69Euros in advance and 89 Euros on the door.
