Last year we announced psychedelic, arnarcho, sonic pioneers GNOD as our 2017 artist in residence. As the GNOD-fog starts to clear a little, we can now bring you a bit more information about the shows they will perform as part of their residency.
They’ll kick off with an improv set, called Gnodulation focussing on their electronic offerings, with a stripped back band. On Friday, April 21, they’ll be delving into the past for some classic GNOD material, but also keeping it current with tracks from their upcoming new album Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine.
Outside of the Dream Syndicate is the title of their collaborative jam session with Kuro on Saturday, April 22. And they’ll round out the weekend with Temple ov BBV – a collaboration with Radar Men From The Moon. Prior to their first sonic ritual at Eindhoven‘s 2016 Psychlab, Temple ov BBV recorded an album, which hopefully will see the light of day at Roadburn 2017 – it would be a fitting testament to GNOD‘s tenth anniversary celebrations at this year’s festival.
In addition to this, there will be artwork on display at the 013 venue by various Gnod-bods, throughout the weekend.
Walter / Roadburn comments: “Having UK psych renegades GNOD as the artist in residence for Roadburn 2017 is simply our humble way to celebrate the band’s 10th anniversary. Their 2012 performance at Het Patronaat is nothing short of legendary, and with the band’s freak flag flying high ever since, we felt the unstoppable urge to both embrace their maverick spirit and the band’s mercurial power at the same time – Roadburn 2017 are you ready for some thought provoking, tribal rituals? We definitely are, as GNOD will transform the festival into a beautiful mess. Please join us, and ‘Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine.’”
Roadburn Festival 2017 will take place April 20-23 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands. Tickets are now on sale!
