Garage-Psych Legend Lenny Kaye To Jam With Harsh Toke at Mikael Åkerfeldt‘s Curated 2014 Roadburn Event

Posted on Monday, March 24th, 2014

We are thrilled – nearly speechless! – to announce that garage-psych legend and Patti Smith’s long-time guitarist (not to mention respected producer and rock historian) Lenny Kaye will jam with Harsh Toke at Mikael Åkerfeldt’s curated Roadburn event on Friday, April 11th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

“Lenny is a legend and the nicest guy in rock. Not Dave Grohl”, says Mikael Åkerfeldt, “First met him in Greece when him and Patti Smith came up to us. She said: ”Is this the band you’ve been raving about?” Lenny said: ”Opeth! Fuck yeah!! Needeless to say, we’re now besties and he’s a natural choice to be invited to Roadburn. Lenny is some type of psych/rock encyclopedia as well as rock/psych guitarist extraordinaire. Ladies and gentlemen, looks like we have a psychedelic jam on our hands. Can we wait? No we can’t!”

Lenny Kaye comments: “I am honoured to be performing at the Roadburn festival, celebrating the legacy of Nuggets and the mind-expansive music that gave me so much inspiration and hallucinogenic direction. Opeth is a band that breaks apart genre definitions while remaining true to their progressive and uncompromising metallic vision, as does the entire festival, which honours the quest for new boundaries in soundscapes and sonic exploration. I look forward to being a part of the audience and then ascending the stage to see where Harsh Toke will lead my sense of improvisation and discovery. It will be a Nugget if you dug it!”

Roadburn Festival 2014 will run for four days from ThursdayApril 10th to SundayApril 13th 2014 at the 013 venue in TilburgThe Netherlands.

Album of the Day: Mount Salem – Endless

Posted on Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from Sea of Tranquility: Mount Salem are a four-piece psychedelic doom band from Chicago, Illinois, and their debut release from Metal Blade is titled Endless. Actually, Endless was originally an EP that the band released independently back in early 2013, but once Metal Blade signed them up, they […]

Album of the Day: The Vintage Caravan – Voyage

Posted on Friday, January 17th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from Sea of Tranquility: Yes, longstanding heavy metal label Nuclear Blast is certainly venturing forth even further into the whole retro-hard rock craze, as evident by their release of the debut album from Icelandic band The Vintage Caravan. Voyage is the work of a young band who have […]

Album of the Day: Indian – From All Purity

Posted on Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: It’s cold; almost zero degrees with an icy Western breeze. It’s dark; nearly black, but the pale dawn sun is just beginning to penetrate the horizon and its grey-orange outburst gradually illuminates the low-hanging mist adorning the farmland around me. It’s a Monday and, […]

José Carlos Santos’ Roadburn Band Of The Week: Bölzer (Terrorizer)

Posted on Monday, December 30th, 2013

Ah, the Afterburner. This particular little part of Roadburn always deserves a special mention, as some of the younger / first-time Roadburners still tend to treat it as a sort of afterthought, and some of them, especially when travelling, even avoid it altogether. Well, take it from your elders – […]

José Carlos Santos’ Roadburn Band of the Week: The Body (Terrorizer)

Posted on Monday, December 16th, 2013

A few more Roadburn lessons for the uninitiated: Roadburn’s (ever-growing) eclecticism is by now firmly established, even to first-timers who have been reading these posts. However, it is possible to grossly generalize the type of bands attending the festival each here in two major categories – the trippy ones and […]

Circle To Come Full Circle Playing With LOOP at Roadburn Festival 2014

Posted on Monday, December 16th, 2013

One of the most important musical influences on Finland’s indescribably, uncategorizably brilliant Circle was the band LOOP, and we are ecstatic to be able to announce them both on the same bill. Circle will play their unpredictable but intoxicating blend of psychedelic metal / krautrock / artrock at Roadburn Festival 2014 […]
