Latitude have just announced a new addition to this years festival - opening the Obelisk Arena on Sunday 20 July will be the supergroup Atomic Bomb! Who is William Onyeabor?

The band is made up Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, LCD Soundsystem's Pat Mahoney as well as Money Mark, Sinkane, Scritti Politti and Mahotella Queens (with more set to be announced closer to the day). The band honours the mysterious Nigerian synth musician who self-released 8 albums between 1978 and 1985 before disappearing into obscurity.

In the past David Byrne, Damon Albarn, Ghostpoet, Dev Hynes and Kele Okereke from Bloc Party have all played with the band in the past so rumours of who may be announced as an addition to the supergroup are sure to hot up.

This year Latitude is headlined by Damon Albarn, Two Door Cinema Club and The Black Keys. The festival takes place from Thursday 17 July to Sunday 20 July at Henham Park, Suffolk. More details can be found here.
