News: Blind Idiot God Added To Roadburn 2016

Blind Idiot God has been added to Roadburn Festival 2016, which will be held April 2016.

Festival founder Walter Hoeijmakers comments:

“Over the past decade, Roadburn Festival has been about sonic diversity, whether it’s crunching heavy riffage, weird psychedelics, avant-garde or post (noise)rock, and a cult-band like Blind Idiot God has always been an huge inspiration to fulfill our quest for “leftfield sonic pleasures that push the boundaries of music.” Blind Idiot God almost singlehandedly embodies our manifesto. The moment we heard the band’s first release in over 20 years, the kaleidoscopic, and equally brilliant, Before Ever After, we got extremely excited, and feverishly hoped to get them at Roadburn 2016. It was one simple statement over at The Obelisk, saying that Blind Idiot God found themselves a European bookings agency, that got us immediately on the phone to get the invitation through. It’s not surprising that we’re overjoyed to welcome Andy Hawkins (guitar), Tim Wyskida (Khanate, Jodis, Plotkin & Wyskida) on drums, and Will Dahl on bass (though founding member Gabe Katz plays bass on the album) at Roadburn 2016 on Sunday, April 17th, along with Neurosis (celebrating their 30th anniversary), Jakob and Amenra among others. it will be an incredible sonic mass.”

Blind Idiot God (BIG) will release their new album Before Ever After in early 2015 via Indivisible Music. The record was co-produced by Bill Laswell. The gatefold double-vinyl LP artwork was created by noted artist Seldon Hunt (Neurosis, Earth, Melvins, Sunn).

Blind Idiot God is Andy Hawkins on guitar and Tim Wyskida (Khanate) on drums. Gabe Katz, the band’s original bass player is featured on the album but moving forward Will Dahl is the band’s new bass player live and in the studio. Touring in support of the new album is planned for 2015.

Hawkins says:

“Moving from the studio to the stage is always great. The music opens up dynamically, both performance wise and sonically. The human ear has a much greater dynamic range than any recorded medium and we excel at taking full advantage of that fact.”
