The Bees

Isle of Wight indie rockers The Bees have been added to the Fleet Foxes and Villagers bill for the Eden Session on July 1, 2011.

The Bees come to Eden following last year’s release of their fourth studio album Every Step's A Yes. They blend psychedelic and country influences with guitar-based indie rock.

Their first record Sunshine Hit Me was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and the follow-ups Free the Bees and Octopus both made the top 30 in the UK album charts. Free The Bees featured the band's most successful single to date, Chicken Payback.

Fleet Foxes - the headline act for the evening - are set to release their anticipated second album Helplessness Blues on May 3. Their eponymous debut hit number three in the UK album charts in 2008 and received universal critical acclaim.
