Roadburn is elated to announce that WovenHand will be playing at the 2011 Roadburn Festival, Thursday April 14 at the 013 venue in Tillburg, Holland. We are very much looking forward to seeing David Eugene Edwards prove that making really heavy music does not necessarily mean having the loudest guitars or the most amps.
In WovenHand (and his previous band 16 Horsepower) Edwards uses a funereal southern gothic mood, incredibly deep lyrical content and a distinctive vocal delivery to create some of the heaviest records of the millennium. The rock/folk/world/alt-country music that WovenHand produce is shot through with southern torment and swathed in christian portent: a perfect soundtrack to a Flannery O’Connor story.
They will be touring behind their latest release, “The Threshingfloor”, which delivers yet another epic sonic gloomscape laden with biblical references and philosophical lyrics. By turns intensely powerful and sublimely delicate, WovenHand demand the listener’s reverence and contemplation, something that syncs up perfectly with the already reverential Roadburn crowds.
In other news, Soilent Green, Place of Skulls, Blood Ceremony, Ghost, In Solitude, Count Raven, Year of no Light and Alcest have just been confirmed for Roadburn Festival 2011.
Sponsored by Terrorizer and Germany’s Rock Hard, Roadburn Festival 2011, including Sunn O)))’s special event, and headliner Swans, will run for three days from Thursday April 14 to Saturday April 16 at the 013 venue and Midi Theatre in Tilburg, Holland. There will be an additional afterburner event on Sunday April 17, 2011.
