The set will take place as part of the annual 2017 ‘Roadburn Festival‘ and in addition to Bannon onstage, will also see many of the co-conspirators previously revealed for Wear Your Wounds‘ upcoming debut album, “WYW“, which is due April 07th. Set to join him onstage are:

Chris Maggio (Sleigh Bells, Trap Them, Coliseum),
Sean Martin (Hatebreed, Cage, Kid Cudi, Twitching Tongues)
Adam McGrath (Cave In, Zozobra, Nomad Stones)

Baroness vocalist/guitarist John Baizley is curating this year’s ‘Roadburn Festival‘ and said of it:

“It is a great honor to bring Wear Your Wounds to Europe for their first ever shows with 2017’s Roadburn. I have always considered myself extremely lucky to have spent the majority of my life involved with DIY music. One of the many wonderful things it has given me are the many friendships I’ve made on the great variety of tours Baroness has done.

I met Jake Bannon (Wear Your Wounds) when I toured with Converge in 2008. Since that time, we have remained friends, we have collaborated on several projects together, and have, at times, given each other early insight into our various musical and visual projects. I was lucky enough to have heard a preview of Wear Your Wounds a few years ago while Jake was assembling the nascent, yet vast tapestry of sounds and songs he will be releasing April 7, 2017, two weeks prior to Roadburn.

With this upcoming release we will gain further insight to Jake’s ever-evolving sense of artistry through sound, along with a huge list of incredible collaborators. Throw any and all assumptions aside; this is an expectation-destroying album, one which just so happens to be right up my alley, musically speaking. I’ve never seen them perform (who has, really?) so it goes without saying that I will be front and center for this moment.

The lineup for Wear Your Wounds will include the following, in addition to Jake Bannon himself: Chris Maggio (Sleigh Bells, Trap Them, Coliseum), Mike Mckenzie (The Red Chord, Stomach Earth, Unraveller) Adam McGrath (Cave In, Zozobra, Nomad Stones), and Sean Martin (Hatebreed, Twitching Tongues, Kid Cudi, Cage). Don’t let that list fool you, THIS IS NOT A SUPERGROUP, but its hard to deny the talent and power within those musicians and collaborators. Please don’t miss the opportunity to witness their first-ever performance.”
