New bands make the 2013 Roskilde Festival line-up even harder and heavier

Chelsea Light Moving, Nazoranai, The Sword and Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats make up the latest addition to our 2013 line-up

There’s no need to be overly polite here; regardless of whether you like alternative noise rock or classic hard rock, today’s new bands on our 2013 line-up all kick ass.

CHELSEA LIGHT MOVING (US) is the new band from former Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore. Having parked his legendary and groundbreaking band in the garage, the ever youthful guitar pioneer has assembled a new team of players, perfectly designed to push gritty and sharply cut guitar rock even to completely new territory.

NAZORANAI (INT) take you on a trip to the furthest corners of the mind with their experimenting doom, filled with disturbed vocals and massive doses of darkness. The Japanese emperor of darkness Keiji Haino has teamed up with Oren Ambarchi and Stephen O'Malley from the hooded merchants of doom and Roskilde favorites, Sunn O))).

THE SWORD (US) is one of the most consistent and muscular heavy metal bands out there today. Whether your hard rock benchmarks are contemporary sludge- and stoner metal bands, or Black Sabbath, you’re more than well taken care of here. In the world of The Sword, who’s latest album deals with forbidden Christian scriptures, only one thing is sacred: they worship the guitar riff in all its power and glory.

UNCLE ACID & THE DEADBEATS (UK) have managed to create somewhat of a small cult following around their bloodsoaked and psychedelic hard rock. The British, mildly deviant rock gods will be a revelation to all who enjoy the rock soaked in memorable melodies and guitars with nostalgic fuzz-effects. Mind Control, the third album from the band, is just around the corner.
