Wovenhand To Headline Thursday Date At Roadburn 2015

Posted on Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

We are very pleased to announce that Wovenhand will return to the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival as the headlining act on Thursday, April 9, 2015 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Led by former 16 Horsepower frontman David Eugene Edwards, Wovenhand similarly delves deep into the darker, more gothic side of Americana, only on a much more personal, introspective level. Rustic folk, country, and blues guitar meshes with neoclassical elements and primal percussion, creating a sparse yet intense reflection of the old, weird dustbowl America, with Edwards’ poetic, fire-and-brimstone spirituality adding great intensity and mystique to the music. The latest album Refractory Obdurate is the band’s most visceral work yet, with its heavier arrangements packing a devastating punch.

Wovenhand’s incendiary performance at Roadburn 2011 remains one of the most talked-about shows in the festival’s history, and it’s a great pleasure to have Edwards and his band back at the festival for what should be another thrilling, transformative concert.

The 20th edition of Roadburn Festival runs from April 9 to 12, 2015 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Get your tickets HERE.
