‘Airy ‘erberts Admiral Sir Cloudesly Shovell wowed ethusiasts of greasy balls-out ’70s rock with their very first sold-out 7″ for Rise Above back in 2011, followed by the one-two punch of a brace of albums – 2012‘s Don’t Hear It… Fear It! and last year’s not-so-difficult second album Check ‘Em Before You Wreck ‘Em – that could peel the woodchip wallpaper clean off the walls of your psychedelic crashpad with aplomb.
Steeped in the grimy proto-metal sound of legends such as Sir Lord Baltimore, Blue Cheer, Budgie, and The Groundhogs – ‘Hogs mainman Tony McPhee himself notably put in an appearance on their most recent album – and dripping with all of that good stuff that we here at Roadburn just can’t get enough of, it’s safe to say that we dig ‘em muchly.
In fact, we dig ‘em so much that we asked the boys to play not one but two – count ‘em, two – sets at Roadburn 2015.
That’s right – first off Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell will play on Friday, April 10 at Cul de Sac, Roadburn’s official fifth stage, followed by a second set on Sunday, April 12 at the Green Room – both completely different and just maybe containing a few brand new tunes for you lovely lot to wrap yer ear’oles around to boot.
Be sure to come and salute the Admiral at Roadburn.
The 20th edition of Roadburn Festival runs from April 9 to 12, 2015 at the 013 venue, Het Patronaat and Cul de sac in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Get your tickets HERE.

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: He’s blessed us with the classics – Forest Of Equilibrium, The Ethereal Mirror, The Carnival Bizarre, Endtyme – the list goes on; as the main songwriter and penultimate “riff-finder general” for legendary doom outfit Cathedral, the name Gaz Jennings has been synonymous with skull […]

We’re thrilled to annouce that The Osiris Club & Zoltan will bring their cinematic feel to the 20th edtion of Roadburn Festival, set for April 9 – 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Taking the best parts of 1970s progressive rock – just think King Crimson and […]

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Like a lot of “lost” groups the origins of Rog & Pip are winding and complicated. The duo of Roger Lomas and Philip “Pip” Whitcher trace their origins back to mid-’60s Coventry outfit The Sorrows, which found success not in the UK, but in Italy, […]

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: The old adage “never judge a book by it’s cover” could just as easily apply to albums, and yet the artwork for Check ‘Em Before You Wreck ‘Em, Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell’s second full length effort, seems to perfectly belie its musical content. The […]

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Horisont are yet another shining example of just how good the modern music scene is in Sweden. Presumably Richie Blackmore and KK Downing have being taking over music classes with a countless amount of great bands emerging from the same places that gave us […]

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: The words “hotly anticipated” do not even come close to summing up how I have been salivating to hear this album. I remember many moons ago, I ran into the right honourable Reverend Riddell outside a gig (Grand Magus and Electric Wizard, I think?) […]

Lovingly pinched from Brandish: In case it has escaped your attention there is a bit of psych revival going on at the moment with thousands of bands from all across their world aping their 60s heroes in creating trippy, yet hook-filled soundscapes. A lot of those bands take the easy […]

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: In some ways, it makes sense to think of the new Church of Misery album, Thy Kingdom Scum (Rise Above / Metal Blade), as a sequel to Houses of the Unholy. Like that 2009 full-length, the title is a pun with a religious theme also […]

Lovingly pinched from Angry Metal Guy: So this is the end of the road for Lee Dorrian’s long-running psychedelic doom experiment. Looking back on Cathedral‘s career, they’ve certainly delivered some entertaining and diverse albums while helping make doom cool and interesting again. While I always favored their earlier, less trippy […]
