Roadburn Festival in Collaboration With Ruffstuffmusic Presents: Grimmsons, Partisan, The Progerians, We’rewolves and VVovnd at Cul de Sac on Sat, April 16

Posted on Thursday, February 18th, 2016

Last year, Roadburn focused on Belgium, and in collaboration with one of the country’s foremost bookings agencies, RuffStuff Music, we welcomed some fantastic bands hailing from just next door in Belgium – bands that embodied the spirit of Roadburn.

Belgium remains a hotbed of musical creativity, ranging from post punk to hardcore, and virtually everything in between, so we have asked RuffStuff Music to host some exciting, cutting edge bands, alongside Roadburn’s established acts, for the second year in a row.

We offer Grimmsons, Partisan, The Progerians, We’rewolves and VVovnds an outlet in front of the receptive and open-minded Roadburn crowd on Saturday, April 16, as we give over Cul de Sac to them.

Originating from the Antwerp region, it’s hard to pin down Grimmsons. Intense, heartfelt, and loud, this promising four piece offers up a vibe that draws from different influences – varying from postrock, to sludge to new wave, and postpunk.

Its collective members may be known for past and current HC and metal-derived projects such as Rise and Fall, and Oathbreaker, but Partisan is a whole different beast. Channeling influences from their collective past, Partisan‘s post-punk inspired, beguiling pop tunes deliver their urgency through intense dynamics and dark, hypnotic melodies.

Founded in 2011, The Progerians radiate throughout Brussel‘s underground by way of powerful performances. Their experimental and hefty take on sludge, punk, grunge and occasional, brutal hardcore outbursts, sets them apart from your avarge rock band, while seeking to translate youth’s anxiety, agonising in unemployment and lust offered by the modern world.

We’rewolves are the bastard offspring of The Bronx, Annihilation Time, The MC5 and Motörhead. This is foot stomping wild and heavy, supercharged, sweat soaked, furious, honest, balls to the walls, hard rock ‘n roll. We’rewolves will whip up a serious frenzy and go f*^king nuts – so will you.

The punk of VVOVNDS is immediate – plain and simple! This Belgian four piece live and die within the short minute-and-a-bit, at most, that their song-bombs last. Firmly rooted in the hardcore punk genre, but also touching on power violence, and sludge, VVOVNDS leave deep scars.

With such an electric array of music coming from just the one country, Belgium has much to be proud of, and we’re thrilled to host such up and coming talents at Roadburn 2016.

If you travelled a long way to see a specific band at Cul de Sac, the best advice we can give you is to arrive early to avoid the potential stress of having to stand in line. This might mean missing part of a performance you are enjoying in 013 venue, but hopefully it will be worth it.

Roadburn Festival takes place between 14 – 17 April 2016 at the 013 venue, in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Thursday and Friday tickets remain.

Hemelbestormer To Twist Time And Space At Roadburn 2016

Posted on Thursday, February 18th, 2016
