Wear Your Wounds: Roadburn 2017 Will Show A Different Side of Jacob Bannon

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

In 2016, Converge treated us to two outstanding special shows, playing Jane Doe in full and performing with the Blood Moon ensemble. We were so blown away by the way the band merged with the Roadburn ideals and instinctively realised their connection to the festival, that we had to make something happen on the Converge front for 2017 once again.

Thus, enter Wear Your Wounds – vocalist Jacob Bannon‘s intensely personal project, an outlet he has been quietly feeding over the years, a repository for his lo-fi solo recordings that will now finally see the light. Wear Your Wounds will perform as part of John Dyer Baizley’s curation.

Scheduled for April 7, just a couple of weeks before Roadburn, Wear Your Wounds‘ first self-titled full length has us sitting on our hands with excitement. There was a brief taste to be had, of what this could be, via the split with Revelator (none other than Ben Chisholm, a member of the Blood Moon family) which featured an amazingly atmospheric song called ‘Adrift In You’, but the truth is that we will just have to wait and see.

John gives us a bit more insight:

“It is a great honor to bring Wear Your Wounds to Europe for their first ever shows with 2017’s Roadburn. I have always considered myself extremely lucky to have spent the majority of my life involved with DIY music. One of the many wonderful things it has given me are the many friendships I’ve made on the great variety of tours Baroness has done. I met Jake Bannon (Wear Your Wounds) when I toured with Converge in 2008. Since that time, we have remained friends, we have collaborated on several projects together, and have, at times, given each other early insight into our various musical and visual projects. I was lucky enough to have heard a preview of Wear Your Wounds a few years ago while Jake was assembling the nascent, yet vast tapestry of sounds and songs he will be releasing April 7, 2017, two weeks prior to Roadburn.

“With this upcoming release we will gain further insight to Jake’s ever-evolving sense of artistry through sound, along with a huge list of incredible collaborators. Throw any and all assumptions aside; this is an expectation-destroying album, one which just so happens to be right up my alley, musically speaking. I’ve never seen them perform (who has, really?) so it goes without saying that I will be front and center for this moment. The lineup for Wear Your Wounds will include the following, in addition to Jake Bannon himself: Chris Maggio (Sleigh Bells, Trap Them, Coliseum), Mike Mckenzie (The Red Chord, Stomach Earth, Unraveller) Adam McGrath (Cave In, Zozobra, Nomad Stones), and Sean Martin (Hatebreed, Twitching Tongues, Kid Cudi, Cage). Don’t let that list fool you, THIS IS NOT A SUPERGROUP, but its hard to deny the talent and power within those musicians and collaborators. Please don’t miss the opportunity to witness their first-ever performance.”

The other side of Jacob Bannon, Wear Your Wounds, will reveal itself in full at Roadburn 2017 on Saturday, April 22 at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Roadburn Festival 2017 will take place April 20-23 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands. Tickets are now on sale!

Those Poor Bastards Will Haunt Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Sounding like two undead holiness preachers, which they actually are (legally certified preachers, we mean, not undead… we think!), crawling out of an abandoned Mississippi graveyard consumed by the foul bog and delivering their message of the endtimes, Those Poor Bastards will hover around the next edition of Roadburn determined […]

Memoriam Will Breathe New Life Into Death Metal at Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Bolt Thrower were a monolithic beast; sturdy, substantial, and iconic. To say that the band was influential would be a vast understatement. To have witnessed grown adults clambering over each other to get their hands on merchandise sold only at shows was a spectacle. To have experienced Bolt Thrower live […]

Oxbow Are Coming To Roadburn 2017, Expect Fires

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

The imposing figure of Eugene S. Robinson has left a few marks on Roadburn already. He performed solo in 2009 as a part of Neurosis‘ unforgettable Beyond The Pale curation, and on that same year he joined the equally unhinged Black Sun for a devastating guest performance that left more […]

Wolves In The Throne Room Return To Europe at Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

When you think of party music, epic black metal haunted by bleakness and loss are probably not often high up on the playlist. However, Wolves In the Throne Room will return to Roadburn Festival in 2017, and for us, that’s a real cause to celebrate. Having played the festival in 2008 […]

If You Thought Roadburn 2017 Was Heavy, Here Comes Sumac

Posted on Monday, November 14th, 2016

It is, first of all, an enormous pleasure to welcome Aaron Turner to Roadburn once again. Having performed at the festival before with the legendary Isis, the dreamy Mamiffer and the colossal Old Man Gloom, not to mention the many Hydra Head bands that have already trodden the 013 boards, […]

Roadburn 2017 Will Host The Release Show For Ulver’s Forthcoming New Album

Posted on Thursday, October 20th, 2016

We are truly spoiled by Ulver at Roadburn, let’s face it. Back in 2012, they delighted us with the first and only rendition of the songs on Childhood’s End, their album of obscure 60s psychedelia covers. It was a unique and unrepeatable treat that still resonates deeply within our collective […]
