Scots rockers The Van T's are thrilled to join Foo Fighters at this year's Glasgow Summer Sessions.

The Glasgow-based band, formed in 2013 by twins Hannah and Chloe Van Thompson, will also perform alongside Slaves, Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, and Hot Milk at the sold-out show in Bellahouston Park on August 17.

Hannah told STV News she is delighted to be performing at the gig.

She said: "We are truly thrilled and slightly nervous at the same time.

"I'm a big fan of The Foos, so it will be surreal but we're really excited to showcase our music to new people and share the bill with the other bands."

The Van T's have built up a solid fan following with their grungy alt-rock. In 2017, they took home the prestigious Best Live Act gong at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards (SAMAs).

Over the past few years they have performed at festivals including TRNSMT, T in the Park, Tenement Trail, Live at Leeds and London's Community Festival.

In the coming weeks they will be performing in Edinburgh at Sneaky Pete's (March 23), at The Monarch in London (April 11), at The Dark Room in Preston (April 12), and at the Lending Room in Leeds (April 13).

However, the four-piece can't wait for the Summer Sessions.

Hannah added: "We are really lucky to have played with our favourite bands like The Jesus and Mary Chain and Wolf Alice - they were both surreal shows.

"I think this one may be more surreal as it's a band we've grown up with and to share a stage with Dave Grohl is just something else."
