  • STILL CAUSING HAVOC AFTER 30 YEARS – HERE COMES TROUBLE AT DESERTFEST 2016!

    Trouble

    Classic Chicago doom band Trouble are thirty-years strong and still fearing no evil.

    Trouble have held a lofty position of respect in underground heavy rock for over three decades. Coming from the same school as Saint Vitus, they are also praised as one of the original instigators of doom metal. They have had an equally tumultuous career, while always doing things their own way. In the early eighties Read the full article…

  • PROGRESSIVE. INSTRUMENTAL. MASTERFUL. RUSSIAN CIRCLES TO HEADLINE DESERTFEST 2016!

    RC_resized1

    Precious few bands in our world are engrossing, enrapturing and enchanting enough to headline the Electric Ballroom without the charismatic focus of a vocalist.

Leaving no stone unturned in their quest for sonic expanses that are Read the full article…

    russiancircles3

    Shrouded in darkness and exclusively instrumental on stage, Russian Circles are anything but voiceless when it comes to their haunting melodies and beautiful sonic soundscapes.

    Before they unleash a mighty headline set on the Desertfest masses on April 30th, Pete Green sat down with bass-player Brian Cook to talk recording, Chicago and not being At The Drive-In… I remember seeing Russian Circles play The Star & Garter in Manchester, UK around the time of ‘Station’, and there were about twenty Read the full article…
