ALBUM PREMIERE: Regarde Les Hommes Tomber performing Ascension in full

Roadburn 2020 was supposed to be a homecoming of sorts for Regarde Les Hommes Tomber, when we announced their show we said this: veterans of the festival might recall the band’s amazing show at Roadburn 2014, but their growth and development over the past few years fully justifies a grand return. If we were planning a grand return then, the desire for one now is even stronger given the release of their 2020 album Ascension.

Despite their original plans – and those of just about everyone else – being abandoned for the past twelve months, there’s no denying that Ascension has left a mark on us and the wider Roadburn community. We’re thrilled that they’ll be performing the whole thing for us in its entirety, their intoxicating amalgam of genres brought to life especially for Roadburn Redux.

Always threatening something apocalyptic, we have high hopes for this set. We asked the band for a few words about their upcoming show and they told us: “Ascension emerged from the shadows a year ago. Just as the pandemic did too. Be sure that our will to spit on such cynicism by performing these songs… is absolutely resolute. See you soon Roadburn.”

A threat or a promise? We’ll find out in April.

Regarde Les Hommes Tomber will perform Ascension in its entirety as part of Roadburn Redux between April 16-18.
