Reverence Valada 2016 Adds Blaak Heat, Sun Mammuth and More

reverence valada 2016 lineup

Portugal’s Reverence Valada festival is set for Sept. 8-10 in Cartaxo. The fest has been unveiling its lineup in bunches, and it seems to be taking shape as it goes, incorporating acts from classic punk and modern indie rock along with heavy psychedelia, stoner jams and more. This time around, desert constructionists Blaak Heat have been picked up to be part of the bill — forgive the assumption, but a Euro tour seems likely — and they join a slew of bands from across a range of styles in being added, including Portugal’s own Sun Mammuth, who released their debut LP, Cosmo, last fall.

You can hear that record below, following the lineup info for Reverence Valada 2016 from the PR wire:

REVERENCE FESTIVAL: Thee Oh Sees to headline Black Bass curated night!

Portugal’s biggest heavy, psyche and indie music gathering REVERENCE VALADA FESTIVAL unveiled the full lineup for the first night of the festival. Like every year, a national promoter is curating this opening party, with Black Bass and Évora Psych Fest to invite THEE OH SEES and seven other bands to play Parque de Merendas in Valada on September 8th, 2016.

Led by electric frontman and multi-instrumentist John Dwyer, San Francisco’s garage psych-punk legends THEE OH SEES are back in Portugal to present their latest outing Mutilator Defeated at Last. Reknown for delivering hectic dance-inducing performances, there is none better than Thee Oh Sees to kick off the REVERENCE VALADA party!

Also from the U.S., CHAIN & THE GANG embody raw and soulful rock’n’roll at its best, with hell-raising vocalist Svenonius preaching rock sermons as if it was his last day on Earth… and yours.

In the garage psych rock field, Bordeaux-based J.C. SATÀN have proven to be a leading act in the French scene. With largely acclaimed full-lengths and insane boundary-free sets, the band have made a reputation of solid performers throughout the years. Originally from Paris and relocated in the Californian desert, heavy psych/krautrock trio BLAAK HEAT will grace the Valada crowd with a new album produced by Grammy Award-winning Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet). Not to be missed.

Also confirmed to play the first day at REVERENCE VALADA are Porto’s garage surf punk duo THE SUNFLOWERS, heavy psychsters SUN MAMMUTH and explosive garage punk trio 800 GONDOMAR.
