Okay, so they were never coming to Australia, but it's true, Portishead is getting their gig on with news coming out of the UK that the group is performing exclusively at All Tomorrow's Parties, Nightmare Before Christmas later this year.

Unfortunately for us Australian fans, it's overseas. Sucks to be us, big time.

The UK-based outfit will be playing their first full-live site in almost 10 years, saying, "We have always loved the All Tomorrow's Parties set up and we're happy our first shows will be there.

"It's great to have the opportunity to introduce bands we love or have influenced us. We've chosen a diverse collection of artists to play with us and we're really looking forward to it."

Details of the line up will be announced here and at the All Tomorrow's Parties site, ATP Festival, where you'll also find details of how to buy tickets, accommodation available and how to get there, which means nothing to us Aussies (unless you're going...bastards).

Other artists confirmed for the event include Aphex Twin, Black Mountain, Crippled Black Phoenix, Fuzz against Junk, Julian Cope, Oneida, Seasick Steve, Sparklehorse and Team Brick.
