Iconic Welsh rock band Stereophonics have been confirmed for the Eden Sessions this summer and will play a show Thursday June 20.

Stereophonics, whose unmistakable sound is underpinned by the signature voice of front man Kelly Jones, released their gold selling tenth studio album Scream Above the Sounds in October last year.

Since their 1997 debut Word Gets Around, they have sold more than 10 million records worldwide including six UK number one albums.

Tracks such as The Bartender and the Thief, Just Looking, Have a Nice Day, Dakota, Mr Writer, Indian Summer, C’est La Vie and All In One Night are among their many recognisable hits.

Stereophonics have won a BRIT Award, two Q Awards and three Kerrang! Awards.

Rita Broe, Eden's marketing director, said: "We're absolutely delighted to be bringing Stereophonics to Eden for what promises to be a big, noisy rock show for the ages.

“They are one of the best and most distinctive British rock bands of the last 25 years and we can't wait to hear them play their unparalleled catalogue of hits to the Eden crowd."
