Brandon Flowers' stadium rockers headline the TRNSMT's final day on Sunday 8 July, and they're joined by two of Glasgow's best-loved bands, each returning from their own hiatus.

CHVRCHES have been off the radar for much of 2017 while working on their third album – although they have recently contributed tracks to benefit compilations for Planned Parenthood and the Tegan & Sara Foundation – and they play TRNSMT 2018 alongside Franz Ferdinand. Back in October, Alex Kapranos and co announced details of their new album Always Ascending – their first since 2013's Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action as well as a UK tour to come in February.

The Killers, CHVRCHES and Franz Ferdinand join a TRNSMT line-up which features Wolf Alice, J Hus and Courteeners over five days next June and July. Read our reviews of day one and day three of TRNSMT 2017, featuring Radiohead, Be Charlotte, Biffy Clyro, Belle & Sebastian and more.

TRNSMT 2018 takes place at Glasgow Green on 29 Jun, 30 Jun, and 1 Jul, and 6 & 8 Jul at Glasgow Green. Tickets for 8 Jul (The Killers, CHVRCHES, Franz Ferdinand and more) go on sale on Fri 8 Dec
