The Heads (Allen, Maskell, Morgan, Price) – Artist In Residence Roadburn Festival 2015

Posted on Thursday, July 10th, 2014

We’re elated to announce that The Heads (Allen, Maskell, Morgan, Price) will return to Roadburn, their spiritual home in Europe, to follow in the footsteps of Enslaved, Circle, Justin K Broadrick and Neige (Alcest) as Artist In Residence at the 2015 festival (the 20th edition), set for April 9 – 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

For this very rare appearance, Paul Allen (Prof) is back in on lead guitar, completing the circle. All of the band members have been busy, Simon Price, Wayne Maskell and Hugo Owen Morgan with Kandodo, Paul with Anthroprophh, and in the past year Wayne and (now) Hugo have joined Loop.

Meanwhile, The Heads reissue campaign rolls onwards, with the re-release of their second album Everybody Knows we Got Nowhere on their label, Rooster Records.

As Artist in Residence, The Heads will play separate sets over the course of Roadburn 2015. The first will be Kandodo and Anthroprophh, followed by a one-off collaborative freakout with a fellow traveller (TBC).

The band’s residency will culminate in some serious wigged out  riffmongery and the melding point of amped-up space rock with blistering  krautrock  workouts on the main stage on Saturday, April 11.

At last, The Heads will turn their amps up once more and they will pummel the ears and minds of all who bear witness!

“It’s perhaps fitting that Tilburg is the boyhood home of Vincent Van Gogh, since I can only imagine what his missing ear would make of the amps-on-stun overload that characterizes the Roadburn Festival. I am here courtesy of artistic director Walter Hoeijmakers, and Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth, who is curating […]
