Firefly Music Festival reveals 2018 line up in Dover

The British rockers will headline the 2018 Firefly festival, held June 14-17 in Dover, Delaware.

While Eminem and The Killers are top-billed (as they are for a number of fests, including Bonnaroo), so are Kendrick Lamar (his first festival announced this year) and Arctic Monkeys (their first live appearance in three years).

But a video which fans believed revealed further tour dates has been revealed to be fake.

The drug is intended for patients with retinal dystrophy due to a mutation of the RPE65 gene. It's very rare, affecting only a few thousand people in the U.S.

An Instagram story was briefly shared, but quickly disappeared with the NME confirming it was "not from official sources", but Reddit fans were speculating that it could represent the dates and co-ordinates of their next shows. Since then, they've busied themselves with side-projects, including Alex Turner's Last Shadow Puppets and drummer Matt Helders' stint as a member of Iggy Pop's band.

O'Malley recently spoke to motorcycle website For The Ride, with the article stating that "Nick found time for the track day before recording began on the eagerly anticipated sixth album, started at a secret location in September".

The last new stuff we heard from the band was 2013's AM, which brought us hits like "R U Mine?" and "Do I Wanna Know?" What sort of problems, we wonder? The album was nominated for the 2013 Mercury Prize and is considered to be their USA breakthrough.
