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.

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.”
