We’re extremely proud to unveil the official artwork for the 2012 festival by Voivod’s Michel “Away” Langevin. Inspired by sci-fi art of the 50’s, 60’s op art and early 80’s computer-game robotic creatures from another galaxy, Away depicts Roadburn as a head spinning, extraterrestrial invasion from a world far beyond the outer limits that only he could imagine.
