Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on 7th March 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Continuing on from the release of their debut album, Guilty Of Everything, earlier this week, Philadelphia four piece Nothing have confirmed their debut European performance at the legendary Roadburn Festival in Holland. The festival will be hosted in Tilburg, Holland next month.

Guilty of Everything has been gaining recognition and acclaim in both the US and Europe, with OOR magazine in the Netherlands hailing the record as “…the album My Bloody Valentine should have written,” whilst Rock-A-Rolla in the UK describe it as “a remarkably dense and heavy yet gentle and elegant shoegazey dream pop opus“. Roadburn.com said that the album was “a winning mix of ethereal, aurorean shoegaze coupled with infectious riffs and hooks” – making the festival the ideal platform for their European debut.

Nothing will be joining an eclectic mix of artists at Roadburn, ranging from Candlemass through to Loop. They will be playing alongside fellow Relapse Records artists; -(16)-, ASG, Indian, Inter Arma, Locrian, Lord Dying, Windhand, and True Widow. Nothing will perform on Thursday 10th April at Het Patronaat. Roadburn Festival takes place 10th – 13th April at the 013 venue and Patronaat in Tilburg, Netherlands. The festival is sold out, however tickets to the Afterburner event on 13th April are still available. More information can be found at this location.

True Widow released their latest album, Circumambulation, via Relapse Records in July 2013. The album of hypnotic, heavy-but-melodic shoegaze was recorded at The Echo Lab in Argyle, Texas with the band reuniting with producer Matt Pence (Yuck, Jay Farrar). At the time of recording, singer/guitar player DH Phillips commented:

I’ve always considered us a simple band but these songs seem even more boiled down, I’d say the pace is a little different as well. Things are a bit more upbeat.

Circumambulation can be ordered via the Relapse Webstore at this location or downloaded via iTunes at this location. The entire album is available to stream for free via the True Widow Bandcamp page.
