Portishead are to be the next curators and will be performing exclusively at All Tomorrow's Parties, Nightmare Before Christmas in December 2007.
They will be playing their first full live set featuring new material in nearly 10 years at the event which is set for December 7, 8 & 9 at Butlins Holiday Camp at Minehead.
"We have always loved the All Tomorrow's Parties set up and we're happy our first shows will be there. It's great to have the opportunity to introduce bands we love or have influenced us. We've chosen a diverse collection of artists to play with us and we're really looking forward to it."
Details of the line up will be announced at the All Tomorrow's Parties site where you'll also find details of how to buy tickets, available accomodations and how to get there.
The band is currently at work on their third album. It will be the first new material since their second self-titled album from 1997. The bands last release was Roseland NYC Live in 1998.
Although there is no indication how far along the band is, founding member Geoff Barrow posted this on the band's MySpace page almost a year ago:
"We've had our meeting with the label it was really positive....which makes the whole thing so much easier to deal with nice people...The tracks are in a right mess but sounding like a album for the first time in years they (are) a bit weird though. Its great its nice to think us old gits have a few tunes in us without sounding like coffee table Zero 7 - Moby - chill out shit!"
