Hot new event announced

It may be the world's biggest music showcase event but SXSW would be nothing without Clash!

Continuing our involvement with Austin's week long celebrating of music, this year Clash has teamed up with drinks firm Relentless to bring the unsuspecting Texans a dose of feral British rock and roll.

Taking over the Dirty Dog in the centre of Austin, we have a line up that could make even the most dehydrated Texan's mouth water. Headlining our event this year will be none other than returning hardcore heroes Gallows!

One of the most incendiary live acts on the planet, Gallows will showcase their new album 'Grey Britain' before a crowd of unsuspecting Yanks.

Joining the party are hotly tipped indie troops Micachu & The Shapes. Responsible for 'Jewellery' - ClashMusic's album of the week! - the group have won fans with their charming live show.

Further down the bill we've also nabbed dual drumming Scottish bohemoths Dananananaykroyd. The party band's party band, their live show is the stuff of legend, featuring 'The Wall Of Hugs' and 'The Tunnel Of Love'. Don't know what they are? You're about to find out.

Topping things off we've got Northern Ireland rockers Fighting With Wire and acclaimed new indie types Juliette And The New Romantiques.

Keep checking back for more updates!

Clash Vs Relentless takes place on the following date:

19 Austin, Texas The Dirty Dog
