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.’”
Few bands have struck such a deep and emotional chord within the world of doom in the last few years as Pallbearer. The band has spent the last couple of years touring massively around the world, sometimes headlining, sometimes supporting some of our favourite bands, like our beloved curator John Dyer Baizley‘s band Baroness who have been on the road with Pallbearer but a couple of months ago.
John couldn’t resist adding an extra something to his curation, and although they will perform on Sunday, April 23, Pallbearer will be included under his curatorship umbrella.

The masterminds behind Wolves In The Throne Room will present their new side project entitled, DROW ELIXIR. Shrouded in mystery for now, little is known about the project. The band commented: “Wolves in the Throne Room will debut our new dark ambient side project Drow Elixer at the Roadburn Festival. Drow Elixer is woven illusions, ethereal projections and sonic manipulations created with archaic techniques.”
It is an immense pleasure to host such a momentous, never before heard occasion at Roadburn; Drow Elixer will perform at the 013 venue on Thursday, April 20.

In 2016, we introduced our faithful Roadburners to the obscure might of the Icelandic black metal underground. By having Misþyrming as our artist in residence, we were able to feature a series of other bands connected to them on our bill; Naðra, which features four Misþyrming members plus the unhinged demon that is vocalist Ö, gave us one of the most enduring experiences of them all.
Like opening a Pandora’s box, all those tortured, twisting hymns of sickness that made Allir Vegir Til Glötunar one of the most harrowing records of 2016 will now resonate inside the Het Patronaat, on Friday, April 21 as if they were hissing, soul-consuming demons flying free.

ROME has been the creative vehicle for Luxembourgian singer / songwriter Jerome Reuter for over a decade already. Throughout this time, his prolific output has seen him traverse several musical plains, building what is by now a genuinely unique, distinctive and recognisable personality.
ROME will have their long overdue and much anticipated Roadburn debut at the Het Patronaat, on Thursday, April 20.
