Godflesh To Perform “Selfless” In Full At 2018 Roadburn Festival

Godflesh will be performing “Selfless” in full at the 2018 Roadburn Festival. The event will be held on April 19-22 at 013 in Tilburg, NET, and will be curated by Jacob Bannon (Converge).

Godflesh to perform their Selfless album in its entirety Roadburn Festival 2018 as part of Jacob Bannon’s curation Godflesh are the the genre-blurring band founded by Justin Broadrick and G.C. Green in 1988. Their approach melds electronic/dub influences with the aggression of the metal and punk world. This forward thinking style has made Godflesh one of the most important bands to ever surface from the “extreme” music world. Laying the foundation for the blossoming post-metal world that dominates heavy music today. “I first experienced Godflesh when I picked up the Grindcrusher compilation from Earache Records as a teenager. The otherworldly power of Streetcleaner effected me in a way that I still find hard to describe. Since then I have been an avid follower of all music that Justin creates. Though I celebrate the expansive Broadrick catalog as a whole, it is his forays into melody under the Godflesh name that I really connect with. Selfless as is an album that has everything for me. Punishing heaviness, incredible hooks, and limitless emotional depth. It is a true honor that they have agreed to play this album in its entirety at Roadburn 2018” – Jacob Bannon.
