they’re supporting Culture Abuse on tour
So I’ve fallen in love with these.
It’s a mix of Doom, Alt rock with a touch of shoegaze.
It really needs to be played loudly though.
And on a very different side, this is filthy. A mix of sludge and grind, it’s pretty great.
I know, should be a fun night even if they are playing Key Club
oof never been there for a gig but for a night out its poor
doing Star and Garter in Manchester which I think I prefer
Just found these guys
That Jesus Piece album is incredible. I’ve listened to it three times in a row today. Parts of it remind me of the Conjurer album from earlier this year - which is no bad thing.
yeah i’m into this too
turns out the new Wren EP is one 20minute song - out on Friday but up on Decibel:
just watched enough of this to get to the bit where he gets… pierced. Holy shit
Amazing. Tempted to go and see a whole field of people trying to work out which beat they’re supposed to bang their head on. Wouldn’t have thought they were big enough to headline though?
I would say they are more of a name than Shellac who did it this year
Really? I’m completely oblivious to who is a name and who isn’t tbh but I would have assumed the opposite. Remind me not to try and book a festival.
I might be the one in the wrong!
I saw Meshuggah pack out the Forum last year which is about half the total capacity of ArcTanGent, and is bigger than a lot of the venues that previous headliners like Converge, American Football, Shellac, etc. would play. It’s very much a festival for people who aren’t looking for obvious festival headliners anyway.
Will be interesting to see who they ‘pair’ it with for the Friday night. I’d say Meshuggah have been a bit of a white whale since ATG began - they make so much sense for the type of festival it is - I’d say only really Deftones remain now as someone who fits that (very loosely defined) area of music who they have yet to get… that I can think of anyway!
Gonna listen to this on the way home…can’t wait!
