Roadburn 2020: New additions including Russian Circles, Red Sparowes and Warhorse
Just under 24 hours before the tickets go on sale, Roadburn has presented us with a third announcement that will surely whet the appetite of anyone already planning to attend the festival in 2020. This third announcement consists in some very special bands that will take part in one of the curated events, as well as some other names that will be a part of the festival as a whole. Let’s get right to it.
As part of her The Gilded Cage curated event, Emma Ruth Rundle as announced the reunion of Red Sparowes, a band she is a part of alongside former Isis keyboardist Bryant C. Meyer and former Angel Hair guitarist Andy Arahood, as well as Bassist Greg Burns of Marriages and drummer David Clifford of Pleasure Forever. This highly anticipated reunion comes after a ten-year long hiatus by the band, who will be reuniting at Roadburn for an exclusive performance. Also confirmed for The Gilded Cage are the Miami sludgers Torche, who will be finally debuting at Roadburn, the grindcore activists Cloud Rat and two of Kristina Esfandiari’s creative vehices – Miserable and NGHTCRWLR -, which promise to bring awe to all who dare witness them live.
Outside the curation circle, we have the instrumental post-metal masters Russian Circles (on the photo above), who will use the opportunity of returning to Roadburn to present their brand-new record, Blood Year, and Warhorse, who will be performing a one-off show at the festival to honour their late guitarist Todd Laskowski and to celebrate their 20th Anniversary. Last but by no means least, this third announcement is completed by Brutus, Rorcal, Hante., Alber Jupiter, Die Wilde Jagd and Dead Neanderthals, the latter celebrating their tenth anniversary by playing a handful of collaboration shows with Scott Hendrick (Skeletonwitch), Sly & The Family Drone and more.
Roadburn 2020 takes place at 013, in Tilburg, on April 16th-19th. Three-day and four-day tickets are available for 187,50 and 210, 50 euros, respectively, and will be available for purchase online via Ticketmaster, starting September 24th.
