London noise rock duo The Big Pink are set to warm up for their Glastonbury slot with a special show in Bath.

The Big Pink have become one of the most talked about bands in Britain. Revolving around Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell, the duo blend out right noise with elements of classic rock - taking their name from The Band's classic album 'The Last Waltz'.

The band gathered a whirlwind of hype and signed to celebrated indie label 4AD. Currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album in New York, The Big Pink have been let loose in the historic Electric Ladyland studio - built by Jimi Hendrix.

This year's Glastonbury looks to be a vintage year. Headlined by Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, Franz Ferdinand and Blur the event boasts its usual sprawling bill of new talent. The Big Pink are set to make their bow at Worthy farm this summer, playing three sets.

The Big Pink will play at the Queens Head Stage on June 26th, before playing the Guardian Tent the following morning (June 27th) and a show on the John Peel Stage in the afternoon.

One of the country's loudest and most thrilling live acts, ticket holders now have no excuse for missing the drone rock duo.

In order to prepare themselves for the Somerset event The Big Pink have organised a show in Bath. Taking place in the Moles venue on June 25th, it will see the group unveil their forthcoming debut album.

However not everyone is a fan of the band, it seems. The Big Pink's Wikipedia page has been hacked, with the group described as "a weak excuse for two rich kids to get attention, while posing as a band from London, England, comprised of haters, Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell."

Which is nice. Moving on to describe how the band used "Daddy's Cash, sold out their friends and cashed in on the suicide of a family member" for get success, the new writer is clearly disgruntled.

Elsewhere on the page, the anonymous author describes how The Big Pink "spend a combined £30,000 per annum entertaining various members of the music industry".

Well they've not been entertaining ClashMusic! Cat's out the bag now lads, we demand some cheese and wine!

The Big Pink have confirmed the following UK tour date:

June
25 Bath Moles
