Grande Halle de la Villette,

They were a cornerstone of the indie scene in the noughties, and now, after four years away, they’re back with a new album in tow, Sleep Well Beast, which already promises to be epic. To mark their return to grace, the American 5-piece will be curating the first day of the Pitchfork Music Festival Paris at the Grande Halle de la Villette. It’s a fitting return to the stage for Matt Berninger and his band, who have now established themselves as quite simply the leading light on the scene.
