ELECTRIC WIZARD TO BRING ACID ORGY TO ROADBURN

Roadburn have announced that Electric Wizard mainman Jus Oborn will curate next year’s edition of the fest, along with a headline performance from the band.

.

The latest of the elite to be selected as curator, following Neurosis, Tom Gabriel Warrior, Sunn 0))), and Voivod, Oborn will personally select the bands that will play during Roadburn.

.

Electric Wizard themselves will deliver their Witchcult on stage on Friday, April 19th, 2013.

.

Roadburn commented: “We are especially elated about this news because Electric Wizard‘s crushing riffs and psychedelic sounds are the embodiment of the musical spirit of the Roadburn Festival. We are very confident that Jus Oborn has a great sense of the kinds of bands that Roadburn fans will want to see and we look forward to his selections!

.

“Electric Wizard‘s gigantic riffs crash down like an avalanche, sweeping masses of headbangers along on a euphoric wave of oblivion. Their horror film fixation and psychedelic tendencies are completely in tune with Roadburn and their music is loved by all who come to our festival, so it makes perfect sense that Jus Oborn will be the next in the select group of curators.

.
“It’s no overstatement to say that Electric Wizard is synonymous with modern doom music and they are a huge inspiration for the Roadburn festival’s existence. Roadburn is so excited and proud to be working with Jus and to have Electric Wizard headline their showcase day. It will truly be a celebration of doom and stoner rock. We look forward to this collaboration and can’t wait to see what the day shapes up to be!”

.

Oborn is equally enthusiastic, proclaiming: “I am planning the ultimate Electric Acid Orgy…it’s gonna be sick…only the heaviest, most evil drugmetal possible and we will bring our mind altering light show and visuals. Also, we are gonna have a room showing all our favourite horror and sleaze movies…Roadburn 2013 is gonna be a real ‘bad’ trip …hahahahaha”.

.

Roadburn Festival 2013 will run for four days from Thursday, April 18th to Sunday, April 21st, 2013 (the traditional Afterburner event) at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland.
