Below: 13 reasons to be excited about guitar bands in 2013

  • Foals: These Oxford boys have been getting better with every record and third album Holy Fire is expected to be their best yet. Foals are one of the hottest indie bands around and a must see for 2013.

  • Peace: Peace will begin the New Year in style with their release of new single 'Wraith'. Formed less than two years ago, Peace have already supported the likes of The Vaccines and Tame Impala. They describe their sound as 'dark melodic indie techno', but elements of Afro-pop make for an addictive listen. Four lads that really believe in the music they are making and a swagger that will ensure they have a huge year.

  • Biffy Clyro: Scottish rockers, Biffy Clyro are grabbing 2013 by the horns and embarking on their biggest UK and European arena tour - and releasing spectacular new double album Opposites. The band won both the Q and NME awards for best live band in 2011 and will be looking to add to these gongs this time around.

  • Darwin Deez: American indie group, Darwin Deez will be releasing their new album early this year and should be able to help the fight for guitar bands entering the mainstream. The music may not sound as, shall we say, accomplished as other acts on our list but that doesn't stop them from being addictively catchy.

  • Bombay Bicycle Club: We expect to see a new record from Bombay Bicycle Club this year and if it's anything like their previous offerings, we are in for a treat. After releasing three albums in as many years, 2013 looks set to see the Londoner's fourth record after a reasonably quiet 2012. The four-piece have helped guitar music reach the mainstream in recent years and will surely continue to do so.

  • Frightened Rabbit: With a 15-date UK tour and brilliant new album Pedestrian Verse on the way this year, Frightened Rabbit seem poised to take 2013 by storm. The Scottish group have been together since 2003 and are finally starting to grasp a bigger audience that should aid the guitar band revival.

  • Everything Everything: Bubbling under for most of 2012, Everything Everything are now ready to bring their unique twist on indie back to our ears. Debut album Man Alive was a huge hit and helped the band to build a legion of fans. These fans will be thrilled to see the band headlining the 2013 NME Awards shows and releasing second album Arc in January.

  • Theme Park: The highly-touted London lads are probably sick of the comparisons between themselves and Bombay Bicycle Club, but they should take great confidence from it. Their innocent indie-pop is something that will see them go very far. They have been biding their time since 2011 and should finally gain some more recognition in 2013.

  • Beady Eye: Liam Gallagher's Beady Eye will be hoping 2013 is a good year as they release a follow-up to debut record Different Gear, Still Speeding. Hopes are high for the band's second album, which their manager has described as 'the best record Liam has ever made'.

  • Palma Violets: Winning the NME track of the year for single 'Best of Friends' gave Palma Violets a huge platform to build on for 2013. They have already cemented a slot on the NME Awards Tour 2013 which will push them to the very forefront of guitar music. Four 19-21 year olds that have already been heralded as the next Stone Roses. A lot to live up to next year.

  • Kings of Leon: Pioneers of the guitar band revival and one of the biggest modern guitar bands ever return for 2013. Kings Of Leon are currently working on their sixth LP, the follow-up to 2010's Come Around Sundown. The band have confirmed details of a UK tour this year and will play shows in London, Manchester and Birmingham in June and July.

  • Arcade Fire: Gigwise readers recently voted for Arcade Fire's forthcoming album as their most eagerly anticipated record of the year. 2011 saw the Montreal based band scoop a number of awards and soaked up critical praise after the release of The Suburbs and as they cemented their status as one of the best guitar bands on the scene. They are the type of band that will create a legacy and inspire thousands of indie kids to pick up a guitar. The ultimate guitar band to take on mainstream pop in 2013.

  • The 1975: In 2012, The 1975's Facedown EP received rave reviews and single 'Sex' went down a storm for it's tongue-in-cheek lyrics and anthemic feel. They look as though they could fill the void of that edgy. but cute rock band that indie kids just adore. Starting the new year with a show in Berlin, Germany and a string of UK dates throughout January and February, The 1975 will are sure to have one of the biggest years since they formed.
