Roadburn is very pleased to announce Wovenhand, Russian Circles, Wardruna, and a second Enslaved performance among the latest additions to the 20th edition line up of the festival, which will take place in April 2015. The festival organizers had this to say:
"Wovenhand’s incendiary performance at Roadburn 2011 remains one of the most talked-about shows in the festival’s history, and it’s a great pleasure to have David Eugene Edwards and his band back at the festival for what should be another thrilling, transformative concert. The band will reignite the 013 stage as the headline act on Thursday April 9.
"Led by former 16 Horsepower frontman Edwards, Wovenhand similarly delves deep into the darker, more gothic side of Americana, only on a much more personal, introspective level. The latest album ‘Refractory Obdurate’ is the band’s most visceral work yet, with its heavier arrangements packing a devastating punch.
"Already veterans of Roadburn, Chicago instrumental trio Russian Circles will return to the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival for a much anticipated main stage performance on Thursday, April 9, filling the main hall with their spacious, tonally lavish sound. More...
In the wake of several bouts of stateside tours supporting second LP "Reverence To Stone," Seattle doom quartet Samothrace will storm European shores this May with Bell Witch. The band's publicist issued the following statement:
"The fifteen-city trek begins with Samothrace crushing the masses as one of the headliners of this year’s Heavy Days in Doomtown, a D.I.Y. doom/sludge festival in Copenhagen, Denmark running from May 2nd through 5th.
"This year the gathering also features performances from Graves At Sea, Pagan Altar, Cough, Procession, Danava, Moss, Dark Buddah Rising, Conan, Lecherous Gaze, labelmates Mournful Congregation and loads more in addition to Bell With, who will support Samothrace for the duration of the tour which will steamroll its way hazily through Belgium, England, Holland, France, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Germany.
"The acclaimed Reverence To Stone was released in July of 2012 via 20 Buck Spin, the label also responsible for unveiling the band to the masses on the masterful 2008 debut Samothrace album, Life’s Trade. Through two lumbering, expansive tracks, the band explores more cavernous realms of thunderous tone hand-in-hand with even more beautiful and organic elements than ever on Reverence To Stone, culminating in an incredibly real sounding psychedelic doom metal that continues to prove Samothrace as one of the leading bands of the genre."
