Having released a live album earlier this year and a self-titled tape in 2011 (review here) and the prior Psychonaut, Glasgow space rockers The Cosmic Dead have made their new full-length, The Exalted King, available on tape through Dub Ditch Picnic and for download through their Bandcamp page. News just came in as well that they’ve been added to the formidable Roadburn 2013 lineup, so get your head into some jams:
Glasgow’s The Cosmic Dead will bring their jammy space-rock to Roadburn Festival 2013 on Saturday, April 20th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland.
“Since 2010, The Cosmic Dead have been exploring the outer reaches of Krautrock, doom and psychedelia, tasting the extremes of sound and fusing them into a single, all-enveloping web of stratospheric riffing, otherworldly ambience and kosmische textures that has spread itself across countless shows throughout the UK, two full-lengths and a live collaboration with the king of Can, Damo Suzuki.
“For anyone who hasn’t yet stood before the Dead and their live homage to the cosmos, expect religious devotion to synthesised dreamworlds, subsonic grooves, guitaristic splendour and the vast, hypnotic sounds of Hawkwind and Popol Vuh eternally jamming in the Möbius strip of time and space” –David Bowes.
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. Pre-sales will start, October 4th, 2012.
