Roadburn 2015: City of Ships, Big Naturals, Salope and Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell To Complete Friday Cul de Sac Line up

Posted on Thursday, January 29th, 2015

Now that we have moved  Goatwhore across to the Green Room on Thursday, April, and invited Mortals to perform a second show next to Downfall of Gaia at Cul de Sac, we’re very pleased to announce that City of Ships, Big Naturals, Salope and Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell will complete the Friday lineup on April 10.

Bristol’s best kept secret, the UK’s Big Naturals, comprised of Anthroprophh‘s Gareth Turner and Jesse Webb, will unleash their bludgeoning bass, drum, moog, theremin kraut-punk attack on Cul de Sac, Roadburn‘s official fifth stage located accross from the 013 venue.

Turner will also perform as his alter ego, Salope, and obviously Kraut comes to mind, but this heavily tattooed, offensive, beatnik baldy delivers sounds that other noiseniks only dream of.

With shades of post-rock and a hardcore past, City of Ships will have you hooked from the beginning. Their sound is a blend of atmospheric grooves, melodicism and clean vocals with frenetic metal riffs moulding abstract atmospheres, aloof textures and songs with a sometimes sombre personality – as showcased on the band’s critically acclaimed, latest album, Minor World. City of Ships will release a new full-length soon.

Steeped in the grimy proto-metal sound of legends such as Sir Lord Baltimore, Blue Cheer, Budgie, and The Groundhogs, 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 Admiral Sir Cloudesly Shovell 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.  And, given how fond we are of the band, we’ve invited them to do two performances; Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell will also play the Green Room on Sunday, April 12.

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.

Downfall of Gaia To Pelt and Pummel Roadburn Festival 2015 With All Their Colossal Shades of Darkness

Posted on Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Over the years, Germany’s Downfall of Gaia have drifted away from their fast, crust-punk roots, moving instead towards a more massive sludge and doom approach – their post metal leanings are an avalanche of black earth and murky waters, while their lyrics poetically describe the dark side of living. Last […]
