Roadburn has announced more names to its 2019 lineup, as well as revealing the Artist In Residence.
Cave In, yes, you read that right, are set to play Roadburn 2019. At the 2018 edition of Roadburn, Stephen Brodsky and Adam McGrath paid a moving tribute to bandmate Caleb Scofield who died the previous month, with an acoustic set of covers and Cave In tracks.
Stephen Brodsky comments:
“Without question, it’s a high honor of artistic merit to perform at Roadburn. Members of Cave In have had the fortune of playing with other bands/projects in years past. Seems only a matter of time that we’d do a proper set at one of the best festivals on the planet devoted to forward-thinking music. We hope you’ll join us for a celebratory sonic lift-off into Roadburn 2019.”
Cave In will perform on Saturday, 13 April.
Old Man Gloom are also set to return Roadburn after a four year absence. Following the death of bassist, Caleb Scofield, earlier this year, Old Man Gloom vowed to continue what they had already started. Stephen Brodsky will be handling bass duties for this performance, and in turn Nate Newton will be taking on the role for Cave In’s set. This collaborative trip across the pond is made by a group of friends united by love and a desire to celebrate the life of Caleb. To that effect, Old Man Gloom promise a special set at Roadburn and more details will be available in due course. Old Man Gloom will perform on Sunday, 14 April.
There are a few pretty immovable parts of Roadburn these days; traditions that we maintain to showcase the best and brightest in our little world. One of these cornerstones is our Artist In Residence – a band or solo artist who will perform multiple times across the weekend, and with each set they showcase a different facet of their creativity. Past artists in residence include Earthless, Gnod and Misþyrming
The choice for 2019 was… easy. If there’s one band who have surpassed themselves – and arguably many of their peers – in terms of creative output this year, it’s Thou. They will play four times across the weekend; there will be a collaborative set, a covers set, an acoustic set, and a Magus era set. What exact form those performances take, and the details of them will unfold between now and… well, the moment they step on stage for each of those specific sets. Thou will be performing on each day of the festival.
Other artists that have been announced for 2019 include Henrik Palm, Daughters, Drab Majesty, Ulcerate, Imperial Triumphant, Gold, Wolvennest, Messa and Mord’a’stigmata.
