Reclusive Roky Erickson has reunited influential rock act the 13Th Floor Elevators for an upcoming festival in their native Austin, Texas.

Erickson, Tommy Hall, drummer John Ike Walton and Ronnie Leatherman will headline the Levitation Festival on 10 May (15). It will mark the band's first performance since 1967.

The You're Gonna Miss Me hitmakers have become the latest cult 1960s act to reform after featuring heavily in Foo Fighters star Dave Grohl's 2014 Tv documentary series Sonic Highways - Erikson's band's story was chronicled in the episode centred upon Austin's music history.

Last month (Jan15), Seattle, Washington's The Sonics announced plans to release their first album in almost 60 years.

The band, considered one of the forefathers of the grunge movement, featured in Grohl's Seattle episode.
