Roadburn’s excited to announce that Chelsea Wolfe has been confirmed for Roadburn 2012 on Thursday, April 12th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland. (With the addition of Chelsea Wolfe to Roadburn 2012, the line-up for Thursday, April 12th is complete).
Sacramento-born, downtown L.A.-based guitarist, singer and electronics sampler, Chelsea Wolfe crafts haunting soundtracks for the apocalypse. Wolfe, with her heavy, long locks, black veil and her piercing eyes, embodies a strange mixture of otherworldly softness and creepy darkness all at once.
As shown on her latest album Apokalypsis, she is raw in both image and music, her rumbling doom-folk songs are impassioned, gripping listeners’ attention with clattering drums, looping synths, and lingering guitar — all to showcase her beautifully hypnotic vocals, and sensual yet fearsome melodies.
Simply impossible to pigeonhole, Kong, hailing from Amterdam, Holland, combine avant-garde, dub, industrial, heavy metal, electronica and progressive rock, all backed up by extensive sampling and quirky sound effects. Kong‘s beautiful yet unscrupulous sonic architecture is a heavy, groove-laden experience — as elemental and from-the-gut as it is cerebral. Kong‘s unconventional approach will appeal to any forward thinking rock and metal head.
Kong‘s music is 99 percent instrumental, and conceived and performed quadraphonically, with each member of the group taking over a different corner of the venue for ideal sonic delivery. However, due to production affairs, their appearance at Voivod‘s curated Au-delà du Réel-event on Friday, April 13th will be in a normal band-setting on stage.
Tickets for Roadburn 2012 will go on sale Saturday, November 26th, 10:00 Central European Time (that’s tomorrow!!). There will be a 2 ticket limit (per order) for 3-day and 4-day passes and Afterburner tickets – the same goes for the Campsite Tickets.
