BIRMINGHAM . UK
Supersonic Festival are immensely proud to announce iconic pioneers of heavy music, Neurosis as their 2019 headliners.
“Its been a long time coming, but finally Neurosis is teaming up with the folks at Supersonic for a special event in Birmingham, a holy land for heavy music. We have known Supersonic to be kindred spirits since we first met years ago to discuss our mutual commitment to supporting independent, emotionally intense artists. Their lineup over the years has mirrored our own appreciation for eclectic sound with a depth of spirit and passion, creating a platform for some of the most interesting and inspired artists around. This is not to be missed.”
Neurosis founder Steve Von Till
Showing their discontent with convention from the very beginning, Neurosis revealed what would become an instinct for transformation in sound and scope. Going beyond the remarkable, Neurosis have become unforgettable.
For over 30 years, Neurosis have relished in the unpredictable and embraced the unknown possibility of where the music was capable of taking them. For 15 years, Supersonic festival has been guided by the same adventurous spirit, and fiercely independent principles, playing host to groundbreaking musicians and artists from around the globe (from LCD Soundsystem, Anna Von Hausswolff, Holly Herndon and The Bug, to Goblin, SUNN O))), Jenny Hval, and Godflesh, to Mogwai, Gazelle Twin, Moor Mother and Shirley Collins). Supersonic are delighted to fulfil a life-long dream in welcoming Neurosis to Birmingham next July.
“Supersonic reasserts itself as the best European festival for new music” - THE QUIETUS
“Supersonic is a festival of cross-genre pollination, but also one that questions what genre is: brain-frying psych followed by avant-folk via ear-bleeding noise and minimal techno all just makes sense here. It manages to cram so many different sounds into a 72-hour period that it leaves your brain feeling like its own pulsing modular synthesiser.”
