Fast-rising Brit bands Yashin (pictured) and The James Cleaver Quintet will back Fred Durst and his mates at Brixton Academy on May 29.
And it’s little surprise that both bands are stoked about supporting rock royalty in the capital.
Yashin frontman Kevin Miles said: “It is such an honour for us to be asked support Limp Bizkit! When I was growing up, my bedroom walls were plastered with Significant Other posters … and I never thought that in years to come I’d be given the opportunity to share the stage with my heroes. This will be our first time playing Brixton Academy and we cannot wait to take it to the Matthews Bridge!”
The James Cleaver Quintet echoed Miles’ excitement and added: “When we were 12 we remember waiting for two hours for a clip of My Generation to stream on the computer.
“As soon as it did we literally ran straight to the local record store to pick up Chocolate Starfish, and subsequently had it on repeat for at least half a year.
“Twelve years later and still it gets consistent van-time stereo play so to say we’re excited to be playing with the band that ruled the Walkman for the first year of secondary school, and way beyond, is an understatement.
“In the words of Fred himself – ‘take ’em to the Mathews Bridge’.”
