ALBUM PREMIERE: Emptiness performing Vide in full

Back in 2017 Emptiness shrouded Het Patronaat with their tenebrous black metal atmospherics in such a way that a return visit was always going to be on the cards –  just the when and where were in question. Upon hearing their latest offering Vide (due out via Season of Mist in February), things started to become clearer…

We’re delighted to announce that Emptiness will perform their sixth studio offering in its entirety at Roadburn in April; an exclusive performance in Tilburg that will no doubt send ripples out around the globe – and leave us all questioning our version of reality. To listen to Vide on record is to let the rolling fog pin us down and envelop us, to witness it live may just consume us entirely.

Their melancholic experimentation is spacious – leaving plenty of room for the unspoken to reverberate around the confines of the album itself. Expansive and vast in scope, delicate passages reach roiling heights over and over again, sure to leave listeners in a different state to which it found them. We’re honoured to host this special performance by a band that continually seeks to redefine themselves, and as a consequence also is redefining heaviness in a way that really resonates.

Of their performance, the band said:
“Vide… the creature is alive, and tells about your story and long life journey to nowhere.

The best way to honour it is to sink with it, to sink with us, in a bad trip from the beginning to the beginning of its thoughts.  Claustrophobic, confused, damaged, a melting Emptiness into misery pop.”

Emptiness will perform Vide in its entirety at Roadburn Redux, which will take place between April 16-18.
