For this first edition of Knekelhuisdisco we will bring you a really special lineup:
Deafheaven from San Francisco, USA, will be headlining this night. The band caused quite a stir in the international blogosphere with their absolutely intense album Roads to Judah (Deathwish Inc.) and will end up in a lot of year-end lists. Think: fiercely heavy, yet intensely gorgeous mixing elements from black metal, shoegaze and postrock played with hardcore punk fury. Imagine My Bloody Valentine and Explosions In The Sky members deciding to make an album after listening to Darkthrone’s Transilvanian Hunger. It ended up 22nd at Pitchfork’s best-of metal list of 2011 and mentioned: “if they toured with Liturgy, web boards would implode”. See for yourself.
Hierophant from Italy accompanies Deafheaven on this tour. Their sound is black, slow, ferocious doomy crustpunk and they will crush your skull.
Local anti-heroes Fire Walk With Us will definitely start the evening with a bang. Come early, the party starts at 19:30 hours.
