Fear Falls Burning performing The Principle Flaw

For just about twenty years now, FEAR FALLS BURNING has been a creative outlet for Dirk Serries; this prolific musician has appeared at Roadburn under many guises over the years. He will return to Roadburn with Fear Falls Burning for the first time since 2019, this time to premiere new music titled The Principle Flaw.

Dirk will be joined by impressive, introspective Swedish drummer Tim Bertilsson (of the Switchblade fame) and British saxophone player Colin Webster (famous for his active role in the free improv scene and his live and recorded contributions to Idles’ repertoire). Fear Falls Burning are returning more bleak and more devastating than ever before. Stripped down to the bare essence of his own signature style of guitar playing in combination with the mighty metronome pulses of Tim on drums and the desolate howls and tonal streams of Colin on the sax, this music goes beyond and within. Dirk promises that The Principle Flaw is “an echo which will burst the ear and compromises the mind.”

We urge you to give yourselves over to Dirk’s experimental ruminations and perhaps you’ll leave this edition of Roadburn a changed person.
