Desertfest Athens 2016: 1000mods and House of Broken Promises Join Lineup

I said when the fest was first announced that I didn’t think you could have a Desertfest Athens and not have 1000mods take part. They’ve become one of the most integral Greek heavy rock bands, have toured almost relentlessly the last several years, pushing themselves to the forefront of the country’s still-underrated scene, and they have a new record in the works that, one hopes, will be out by the time Desertfest Athens 2016 actually rolls around, all the more so since they’re also confirmed (thus far) for Desertfest Belgium and Keep it Low. Do not be at all surprised when/if three weeks of tour dates are announced. That’s kind of how they roll.

They’re one of two new additions to the Desertfest Athens 2016 lineup alongside House of Broken Promises, who’ll arrive in Greece representing the actual Californina desert from whence desert rock sprang. I was fortunate enough to see the trio at Desertfest London in 2013 (review here), and they put on a stellar show, so they would seem to be well chosen for the Athenian task too. Wonder if they’ll tour.

It’s shaping up to be quite a fest:
