Reykjavík, Iceland --- The elusive Swedish electronic duo The Knife has been added to the Iceland Airwaves 2014 lineup, joining previously announced acts like Flaming Lips, The War on Drugs, Caribou, and many, many more - scroll down to check out the full lineup so far.
This will be The Knife's first-ever appearance in Iceland, despite making music since 1999. The Iceland Airwaves set will also be the final performance of the band's Shaking the Habitual Tour, which began in April 2013 and will hit a few final cities in Europe this fall.
Iceland Airwaves is also teasing another artist announcement, so stay tuned for more additions to the lineup. In the meantime, grab your tickets to the festival, which takes place November 5-9 in Reykjavik, from the festival's website.
UPDATE: Dazed and Confused magazine has confirmed that The Knife will be calling it quits after this fall's leg of the Shaking the Habitual tour - making their Iceland Airwaves performance their final one. The band told the magazine, "When we finish the tour now in November, we will close down, it’s our last tour. We don’t have any obligations to continue." The band has also posted a short message titled, "We are Doing Our Last Tour!" to the front page of their website.
