More bands join the line-up for Camden's hottest rock event, and there's more to come.
New Model Army and ex Sex Pistols' bassist Glen Matlock are among the newly announced additions to London's coolest rock event, Camden Rocks 2015, which will take place in May across some of Camden's hottest and most recognisable venues.
Jaws also join the Camden Rocks 2015 line-up
80s post-punk legends New Model Army join the already electric line-up alongside Glen Matlock from the Sex Pistols, Birmingham's Jaws, post-hardcore four-piece Glamour of the Kill and Australia born bluesy duo The Graveltones according to the latest announcement for the festival, which is set to arrive on May 30th 2015, with a very special headliner who is yet to be unveiled.
Very little is known about Jaws except they're the latest hotly tipped outfit to emerge from Birmingham's seemingly thriving music scene.

Indeed, that record actually made the Radio 1 daytime playlist thanks to Huw Stephens, which only adds to the weight of expectation gathering around their teenage necks.
'Milkshake' then is a compilation of sorts, containing six tracks including the aforementioned 'Toucan Surf' and its follow-up 'Stay In'. While both of those merit their inclusion, particularly in the case of the former which sounds like New Order being re-enacted by Washed Out, it's the newer songs that really highlight Jaws as a band with several strings to their bow.
