Desertfest are completely stoked to announce the return to London of Richmond, Virginia’s purveyors of ultimate doom-filth, the mighty COUGH, for the HDP/WPC stage at DesertFest this year.
Cough smashed into worldwide acclaim within doom / sludge circles with the crushing 2008 début album Sigillum Luciferi, followed in 2010 with the fully engulfing psyche-sludge of Ritual Abuse (available on Relapse Records) and a split with the UK’s own doom titans The Wounded Kings. Encompassing monolithically pounding, horror-raising, weed-tuned riffs and vocals stylings ranging from classic occult doom to downright demonic, blackened screams of desperation, the band have proven they are a force to be reckoned with both in this realm and beyond.
Having played across the U.S. in the last few years with the likes of Buzzov-en / Weedeater / Eyehategod, as well as even reaching to play a 2011 tour in Australia, COUGH will most definitely be a must for any devotees of the heaviest tone with their appearance at The Underworld at DesertFest 2013.
Desertfest 2013 takes place between 26th – 28th April 2013 over 4 venues in Camden, London and tickets are available at Leedstickets.com.
