EXCLUSIVE SETS (Pelagic Presents): Blessings

As part of Roadburn Redux, we have joined forces with Germany’s Pelagic Records to showcase artists on the label’s roster under the banner ‘Pelagic Presents.’ With no indication of slowing down, this positively prolific label is churning out stellar release after stellar release, even during the last twelve challenging months. Join us as we team up to bring you an exciting collection of premiers, exclusive performances and more. Brace yourselves, we’re going deep…

A recent signing to the Pelagic stable, Blessings are making themselves right at home with the upcoming release of their album, Biskopskniven, due out via the label next month. Hailing from Gothenburg – as many great bands do – Blessings combine elements of hardcore with noise rock, post rock and more. The results are a frenetic blast of abrasive energy that’s hard to resist. Although they’re on their third full length, signing to Pelagic will no doubt introduce them to a broader audience, and so too – we hope – will their performance at Roadburn Redux.

Last month the band got together at Skjul Fyra Sex – a hotbed of punk/diy music in Gothenburg – to run through some material, both new and old, and captured everything on tape. We’re thrilled to be presenting a few tracks from that session exclusively at Roadburn Redux.

The band said: “We are happy to be taking part in Roadburn Redux and since we can’t be there in person it’s still nice that we could get together a small crew of such amazing people to help us out capturing a show at local venue, Skjul Fyra Sex. This venue which has been an important part of the punk/diy scene in Gothenburg for such a long time with such devoted and honest people running it is a treat to be doing this in. We’re thankful for making this show here and honoured to be playing Roadburn. We did a small set with a blend of a few old songs and a few from the upcoming album and it was a blast to play kind of live so we hope you enjoy it!”

Blessings will perform as part of Pelagic Presents at Roadburn Redux, between April 16-18.
