True Widow To Return To Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

We’re thrilled to have True Widow return to Roadburn – having hosted the Texan trio back in 2014 – as we prepare ourselves for yet another dose of their sultry yet syrupy fuzzed out trips.

AVVOLGERE saw True Widow leaving their mark on 2016; a grey, earthy smear across the year’s musical offerings. Loaded with the intoxicating combination of distortion and melody that we have grown to know and love as a hallmark of True Widow’s sound, AVVOLGERE is another notable marker in their back catalogue.

Don’t be fooled by the wall of fuzzadelic sound; there is intricacy and nuance in those there tracks. The hooks might not all seem immediately apparent on the first listen, but they have the ability to loom out of the sludge and drag you under before you can catch a breath.

We’re already anticipating breathlessness when True Widow take to the Green Room stage at the 013 venue on Friday, April 21 as part of Roadburn Festival 2017.

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