Both bands will be presenting their brand new albums that will be released next year. The tour will be handled by Daemon Star Agency and dates / venues are still being confirmed.

The upcoming tour will be Forgotten Tomb’s first after the successful “European Upheaval” tour with Nocturnal Depression, which took place late 2015 – the same year which saw the release of latest installment, “Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love.” Stay tuned for full details.

Neurosis To Celebrate 30th Anniversary At Roadburn Festival 2016

The Roadburn Festival is proud to announce that Neurosis will celebrate its thirtieth anniversary as headliner at the 2016 edition. Pioneering Yorkshire doom legends, Paradise Lost, will also headline Roadburn Festival on Thursday April 14, playing second album “Gothic” in its entirety. Roadburn Festival is further incredibly proud to announce that the 2016 curator will be musician, label owner and sonic pioneer, Lee Dorrian.

Neurosis comments: “To be invited to celebrate our 30th anniversary in Europe at Roadburn is an absolute honor. Roadburn is a treasured and unique event that embodies the spirit of open minded community and original, emotional heavy music. We are humbled to be a part of it again.”

Paradise Lost’s Nick Holmes adds: “As a young band we spent a good deal of time in the early 90’s driving around The Netherlands in a small transit van, living off chips with mayonnaise, drinking Chocomel and playing stuff from this album. ‘Gothic’ totally reminds me of those days, so if we were ever going to play the album in its entirety in 2016, it has to be in The Netherlands, and where better than the Roadburn Festival!!”

Lee Dorrian also had this to say: “I feel very honoured to be handed this prestigious task to curate Roadburn 2016. Having been involved with Walter on a personal level for many years now, I always felt like part of the family, as opposed to being someone on the outside. So, with that in mind, I was both shocked and excited when he asked me to take on this fantastic opportunity.
I promise to make this an event that no-one will forget, and I’m already frothing at the potential of possibilities available!! It’s a dream and one that I never expected. This is what I love, so I will not disappoint. Come and join us in this ritualistic nirvana of praise and offerings to the unholy Blind Dead. Templars Arise!”

Roadburn Festival takes place between 14 – 17 April 2016 at the 013 venue, in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Ticket announcements will follow in due course.
