Roadburn: Essential Sounds 19.10.18

This week’s playlist is a bit different to usual as it focuses on just one band: Cave In.

At Roadburn there’s no doubt that we live for those “once in a lifetime” moments, the sets that won’t be repeated elsewhere and the collaborations that live long in our memories. When those kinda things roll around and they’re not happening at Roadburn, we embrace them just as enthusiastically. Last weekend saw such an event as a dozen or so musicians – and 1,800 of their closest friends – gathered in Los Angeles to celebrate the life and art of Caleb Scofield.

A big draw was the one-off reunion of Isis, who performed under the name Celestial. Once the initial is-this-really-happening feeling passed, Celestial played as though they had never been away; eight years of radio silence melted away to be replaced with a band that was as abrasive and urgent as ever. That we have been bombarded by requests for Isis to perform at Roadburn 2019 is testament to the fact that for many there is unfinished business there. However, we can confirm that Isis (or Celestial) have not been booked to play Roadburn.

To be at peace with a band ending on their own terms is sometimes difficult to grasp. As fans we always want more – one last show, one more album. In this case, the one last show was part of a tribute to Caleb, who died earlier this year in a car accident. The threads of his creativity are woven throughout multiple bands – some of which were represented on Saturday night – highlighting the importance of his artistic contributions. Celestial as a one off was a perfect tribute; we don’t need more, we shouldn’t ask for more – not now.

Whilst Isis lay dormant, Cave In too were more often slumbering than not. Save for a handful of sporadic shows, the band haven’t played much since 2011, and even then much less than in their positively prolific years of 2003-4. And yet, here they were – on fine form, blasting away the cobwebs with no sign of ring rust.

The first half of the set featured Caleb’s brother, Kyle, on bass. He stepped forward at one point to pay tribute to his mother – without whom he wouldn’t be stood there, and without whom Caleb wouldn’t have achieved what he did. It was a poignant moment in an emotionally charged set.

For the second half, Nate Newton (Converge, Old Man Gloom) took over bass duties and really let rip.  It would be unfair to say that Nate has big boots to fill; nothing about this felt like a replacement for – or an imitation of  – what has gone before. More accurate would be to say that Nate was just keeping those boots warm, polished and in action – and in doing so, he showcased a guttural roar that would have done Caleb proud.

Cave In gave way to Zozobra in what felt like the most personal and cathartic portion of the night. Aaron Turner and Jacob Bannon took turns on the mic as the ensemble cast of musicians marked out exactly why and how Caleb Scofield was such an important and iconic musician in their – and our – world.

Throughout the bands that played (27, Old Man Gloom, Pelican, Isis/Celestial, Cave In, and Zozobra) there are rich pickings for a Roadburn friendly playlist, without a doubt. But I have chosen to stick to just Cave In – forgive me as I get personal for a sec.

I love this band and I’ve been championing them for a Roadburn slot for years. However, it’s only in the past few days that I have really reflected on the importance of them as a band to me as a human being and an avid music fan. This playlist may serve as a topic of debate for avid Cave In fans (what? no Anchor?) or an introduction to the band for those unfamiliar. Either way, I hope you enjoy it.

I think what I have put together is my ideal Cave In live set list – which I know veers from the likely to the highly unlikely. I have almost come to terms with the likelihood of hearing Rubber and Glue live being essentially zero, but I live in hope. And just imagine a set that plays out with the seven glorious minutes of Paranormal! According to setlist.fm it has been played live just the once – a mere 14 years ago.

But guess what? I saw Isis perform Celestial (The Tower) just this week, so really, anything is possible.

Safari Resort Beekse Bergen during Roadburn 2019

October 11, 2018

Safari Resort Beekse Bergen

For 2019, in addition to the jungalows familiar to campers every year, Safari Resort Beekse Bergen – which is located just outside Tilburg – is glad to offer Roadburn attendees the chance to stay in luxurious cabins on the zoo grounds during the festival.

All the info is HERE.

Up to eight Roadburners can share a cabin from Wednesday through Sunday nights (jungalows are still for the whole week) and be assured that Taxi Korthout will run a shuttle bus between Safari Resort Beekse Bergen and the festival, so you won’t miss a thing.

We encourage everyone to partner up with your fellow fest-goers and share cabins, and whether you’re coming with a group of friends or meeting people for the first time, we know that soon the Beekse Bergen cabins will become a great part of your Roadburn experience.


Roadburn: Essential Sounds 11.10.18

The playlist is a day early this week since we’re departing Roadburn HQ to celebrate the life and art of Caleb Scofield and/or see Heilung playing the prestigious philharmonic DR Koncerthuest in Copenhagen.

This week, we lure you into the spiraling netherworld of the burgeoning Dutch black metal scene, which is bursting with creativity. In over an hour, Solar Temple, Fluisteraars, Turia and Iskander will showcase the captivating essence of these thriving musicians — dive head first into their scorched artistry.

So, this playlist was composed with something of an adrenaline hangover, however – as ever – it was a pleasure to put together. There’s new music, of course, but I wanted to start with the criminally underrated Starofash. So, not a new track to kick things off, but one that might have slipped under your radar previously. Elsewhere you’ll find new music from Kælan Mikla, Black Peaks, Super Unison and more!

Eindhoven

Eindhoven is just a short train ride away from Tilburg, and has a huge array of hotels of all different kinds – from luxury to budget. A large number of these hotels are located very close to the train station, so if you time it right, you could go from bed to watching a band at the Koepelhal in a little over half an hour!

Trains run approximately every 15 minutes throughout the day and take 22 minutes to get to Tilburg. Of course there’s a plenty to do, eat and drink in Eindhoven itself, and there’s the added benefit of the close proximity to Eindhoven airport for those traveling in from around Europe.

We already have quite some Roadburners who make the trip to Tilburg every day during Roadburn but this time we’re making it even easier. As the train doesn’t run all night, when there is no train available we will provide a late night shuttle bus running between the two cities once an hour until 4am (3am on the Sunday night/Monday morning) to ensure you get back to your hotel without missing out on any of the fun of the festival.

The Valk Hotel

The Valk hotel will offer hotel accommodation in Tilburg – rooms are on sale from tomorrow. Bookings can be made by emailing: sales (at) tilburg (dot) valk (dot) nl and you must include the reference GF759 in your email subject. Read more about the hotel HERE.

For more information on the Beekse Bergen and to book, click HERE.

We know it can be overwhelming to figure out which option will suit you best – so hopefully the above information gives you enough choices to feel comfortable during your time at Roadburn! With the improved links to Eindhoven, plus the urban campsite we know that there will be plenty of room for everybody!


Special At The Gates Show Announced For Roadburn 2019; Anna Von Hausswolff Also Confirmed

October 2, 2018

Roadburn Festival is proud to present At The Gates… as you’ve never seen them before!

Whether you were there from those early Peaceville days, if you were lured by Slaughter of the Soul, or even if you only discovered them via their latest release, this year’s To Drink From The Night Itself – we all know what a colossal beast of a band we’re dealing with here.

As discussions were held about At The Gates playing Roadburn it soon became apparent that they were dead set on doing something different; presenting the band in a whole new way. Details are still being finalised regarding exactly what the set list will comprise of, and just how those songs will be presented, but what we can tell you is that it’s going to be a must-see part of Roadburn 2019.

The band comments:

“As many of our loyal listeners know we have always incorporated different elements into our own breed of death metal, but we have never taken the chance to explore them to the fullest on stage. Being invited to play the prestigious Roadburn Festival gives us exactly that opportunity. We know very well what is expected from a Roadburn performance, and it is just that sort of challenge that makes us tick.”

“We will dive headfirst into the melancholic eclectic darkness of our back catalogue and explore different, challenging collaborations for this special At The Gates set. We look forward to this with overwhelming excitement. More details on exactly what will happen on that main stage at 013 will follow soon”

With six studio albums under their collective belts, and with the best part of three decades of experience, we are thrilled that At The Gates are so determined to raise the bar another few notches when they perform at Roadburn 2019.

Join us in welcoming a whole new incarnation of At The Gates to Roadburn. Read more HERE

At The Gates will also be performing at TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht (NL) on Saturday, February 2.

ANNA VON HAUSSWOLFF

In addition to the above, Anna Von Hausswolff has also been confirmed for Lindberg‘s The Burning Darkness curated event. On his decision to invite her, he comments:

“Anna’s form of expression goes beyond any kind of popular music in my mind. You just have to dive into that personal darkness of hers and give in to the grotesque beauty that is her very creation. The way she uses pipes organs, mellotrons, moogs etc, and builds drony soundscapes that really stretch the mind and create some kind of gothic folklore of its own. And on top of that, there is – of course – her haunting voice.

“Having had the pleasure of being an acquaintance of Anna through our mutual Gothenburg heritage she thankfully didn’t need much persuading to join the eclectic roster of my curation. I am very proud to be part of bringing this magical voice to the festival. Prepare yourself for a lot of goosebumps and chills down your collective spines. Let the dead magic embrace you in front of that main stage at 013.”

Anyway, we’re back with another selection of tunes for you, and you get these ones for a bonus day so make the most of them.

More names for Roadburn 2019; ticket onsale date confirmed!

September 15, 2018

CAVE IN

We are thrilled to confirm that Cave In will be performing at Roadburn. At the 2018 edition of the festival, Stephen Brodsky and Adam McGrath paid a moving tribute to bandmate Caleb Scofield who died the previous month, with an acoustic set of covers and Cave In tracks. As the audience and band members alike found catharsis through music, we wouldn’t have begrudged them one bit if this performance was the closest we ever got to Cave In at Roadburn.

When whispers reached us that Cave In would potentially be open to a Roadburn set for 2019 – our interest was well and truly piqued. Some months later, we’re beyond delighted to say it’s true – it’s really happening.

Stephen Brodsky comments: “Without question, it’s a high honor of artistic merit to perform at Roadburn. Members of Cave In have had the fortune of playing with other bands/projects in years past. Seems only a matter of time that we’d do a proper set at one of the best festivals on the planet devoted to forward-thinking music. We hope you’ll join us for a celebratory sonic lift-off into Roadburn 2019.”

Cave In will perform on Saturday, 13 AprilRead more here.

The impromptu set Stephen Brodsky and Adam McGrath played at Roadburn 2018 to honour Caleb Scofield will be released digitally and on CD on November 30 via Roadburn Records. Vinyl will follow in early 2019. Part of the proceeds will go to the Caleb Scofield Memorial Fund.

OLD MAN GLOOM

Since Old Man Gloom last played Roadburn in 2014, a lot has changed. Later that year they released The Ape of God, and The Ape of God… a pair of identically named albums which were challenging in all the right ways, and a few of the wrong ways too.

Following the death of bassist, Caleb Scofield, earlier this year, Old Man Gloom vowed to continue what they had already started. Stephen Brodsky will be handling bass duties for this performance, and in turn Nate Newton will be taking on the role for Cave In’s set. This collaborative trip across the pond is made by a group of friends united by love and a desire to celebrate the life of Caleb. To that effect, Old Man Gloom promise a special set at Roadburn and more details will be available in due course.

Old Man Gloom will perform on Sunday, 14 April. Read more here.

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE: THOU

There are a few pretty immovable parts of Roadburn these days; traditions that we maintain to showcase the best and brightest in our little world. One of these cornerstones is our Artist In Residence – a band or solo artist who will perform multiple times across the weekend, and with each set they showcase a different facet of their creativity. Past artists in residence include Earthless, Gnod and Misþyrming.

The choice for 2019 was… easy. If there’s one band who have surpassed themselves – and arguably many of their peers – in terms of creative output this year, it’s Thou. They will play four times across the weekend; there will be a collaborative set, a covers set, an acoustic set, and a Magus era set. What exact form those performances take, and the details of them will unfold between now and… well, the moment they step on stage for each of those specific sets.

Thou will perform on each day of the festival. Read more here.

DAUGHTERS

As lovers of terrifying innovation, we’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Daughters to the 2019 roster. We anticipate lurching horror and bombastic heft to keep the room in constant tension as they deliver the intensity they’re known for. What we know for certain is that fans of everything from The Locust to The Birthday Party will find a little something in this performance, which is bound to leave the room sweaty and exhausted.

“Partaking in Roadburn is similar to what I expect it’s like to be involved in a Scorsese film; performing is a close second only to the opportunity to work with an array of talented artists. We are grateful to be included”Alexis Marshall.

Daughters will ruin the room on Sunday, April 14. Read more here.

CURATED: HENRIK PALM

The first artist out of the bag for Tomas Lindberg’s The Burning Darkness curated event at Roadburn 2019 is none other than Henrik Palm.

Tomas explains his choice: “His name should ring a bell with everybody into anything heavier in our beloved alternative underground scene. He has been a part of seminal bands such as In Solitude and Ghost, and also more “off the map” bands such as the groundbreaking Pig Eyes.

“When I finally got to see him live some time ago, the performance just blew me away. Be sure to not miss out on this. It’s a must see show.”

Henrik Palm will perform on Saturday, April 13 as part of Tomas Lindberg‘s The Burning Darkness curated event. Read more here.

DRAB MAJESTY

Here on Planet Roadburn, we’ve always welcomed visitors of a cosmic sort. While this often means the wildest fringes of psychedelic rock, it also means the asteroid-riding, hazy new wave of Californian duo Drab Majesty is in perfect universal alignment with the festival. Drab Majesty began as a home recording project for former Marriages drummer Andrew Clinco but quickly became its own entity, warranting the need for his alter ego Deb Demure to take the forefront as guitarist, vocalist, and mastermind.

With synthesizer accompaniment from Mona D, Demure guides audiences through a show that is truly beyond time and space, functioning as more of a setting for altered states and new experience than a mere recital of songs from records.

With such strangely seductive sounds and such darkly intriguing subject matter, we can’t wait to watch as Drab Majesty brings their demonstration to Roadburn 2019 as they suspend time on Friday, 12 April. Read more here.

ULCERATE

We are delighted to announce that Ulcerate will be making their Roadburn debut at the 2019 edition of the festival. They will come a long way to do so, and yet already have come so far, deftly positioning themselves as the standard-bearers for a new era of death metal.

Making the trek from New Zealand to be with us in Tilburg means that we’re in for a treat… or torment, depending on your worldview. To witness Ulcerate live is a brain-altering, bone-shifting experience; it is, to put it bluntly, like going through the wringer. That three men can turn a whole room on its axis is no mean feat.

If you’re up for a Sunday (14 April) sermon like no other – one that will leave you blinking in the Dutch sunlight, feeling like your very soul has been flayed – then may we suggest you make a date with Ulcerate for next April. Read more here.

IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT

Hailing from one of the biggest cities in the world, and one where those contrasts are the more poignant, New York, Imperial Triumphant founded by guitarist/vocalist Ilya thirteen years ago has reached, on its third full-length album, a critical mass that fully embodies the essence of their geographical origin, and also acts as an allegory for modern societies in general.

As impressed as we were with Vile Luxury, the band seems to consider it highly as well – their set at Roadburn 2019 will consist of the album performed in full, plus two pieces born out of studio improvisation on. “Imperial Triumphant is ecstatic to be invited to Roadburn’s 2019 festival,” Ilya told us. “We will bring the high society city ritual to Holland; exclusively performing tracks from our critically acclaimed summer release Vile Luxury. It is an honour.”  

Let us prepare the throne for the emperor of gold and filth to sit upon at Roadburn 2019 on Sunday, 14 April! Read more here.

MORD’A’STIGMATA

Poland has always been a fertile ground for quality black metal, and in the past few years, some of the country’s more wonderfully twisted sons have been taking the rich heritage of that scene and building upon it, reaching for those uncharted musical territories that we cherish so much here at Roadburn. Furia and Thaw were great examples of this bubbling creativity last year, and in 2019 it’s up to Mord’A’Stigmata to fire the opening Polish salvo on Sunday, 14 April.

“Two years after the release of “Hope”, it’s high time to open a new chapter in the activity of Mord’A’Stigmata. In April 2019, we will premiere the whole new material at one of the finest events dedicated to genuine sonic experiences, Netherlands’ own Roadburn Festival in Tilburg. To say we are thrilled to be part of it, is to say nothing at all. It’s hard to imagine a better time and place to unfold the music we have been bringing to life and dedicating our lives to for the last months.” Read more here.

WOLVENNEST

Belgium’s Wolvennest ranked among the highlights of the 2017 Roadburn Festival, playing at the 250 capacity Extase. Such was the excitement around their set, the band could just as easily have played on the main stage, as their creepy yet cinematic drone-scapes resonated with everyone present.

Saddened by the idea of people missing out on all that Wolvennest have to offer, and encouraged by the release of their sophomore album, Void, it was necessary to welcome them back to the 2019 festival. Wolvennest will conquer the main stage this time around by playing Void in full on Saturday, 13 April. Read more here.

GOLD

That Gold have been in the studio recently (with renowned produced Jaime Gomez Arellano) fills us with joy. An invitation to Roadburn 2019 (on Friday, 12 April) was mandatory – and made all the more glorious by the news that they’ll be presenting music from that new – as yet un-named – album during their set.

Until Roadburn is upon us, and indeed, until this new album drops, wrap yourself around the melody-drenched heaviness of previous albums, No Image and Optimist, in preparation. Read more here.

MESSA

With their second record, Feast for Water, Italy’s Messa proved once again they’re more than just a great logo. We’re proud to welcome them to Roadburn Festival for the first time in 2019!

Feast for Water, preceded by the four-piece’s 2016 debut, Belfry — as in, where the bats are — is an anti-genre work of richly atmospheric weight. Taking elements from black metal, heavy rock, doom, jazz, ambient psychedelia, cult and goth rock, songs like ‘Leah’ and ‘Tulsi’ offer transcendent spaces for the listener to dwell within. It’s a sonic journey we can’t wait to take when Messa perform a special set as part of next year’s festival. Read more here.

They will be available to purchase in person from Sounds Tilburg record store (from 6pm) for those in the vicinity.  For those further afield, tickets will be available from Ticketmaster.nl from 8pm CEST/ 7pm BST/ 2pm EDT.
