The booking agency represents musicians such as Coldplay, Eminem, Green Day, Snow Patrol, Nick Cave and Queens of the Stone Age.

“We are very pleased with the agreement,” Endless Dark’s guitarist Atli Sigursveinsson told Fréttabladid.

Endless Dark is booked at the Sonisphere music festival in England on July 31. Other performers include Iron Maiden, Rammstein, Mötley Crüe and Placebo.

“It will be fantastic. Other bands that not everyone knows about will play there too which are our idols,” Sigursveinsson said of the festival. “No we will practice like crazy. We can’t blow this. It might be the only shot we get.”

Endless Dark plays post-hardcore metal, so-called screamo. The band include six young men, aged 18-22, from Ólafsvík and Grundafjördur in west Iceland.
