Wovenhand will meet up with Chelsea Wolfe in Denver on August 29th as the special guest for her tour in support of her upcoming album, Abyss (August 7, Sargent House). This five-week-long U.S. tour follows Wovenhand’s wildly successful European run, which included a headline slot at Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands this past April and forthcoming club shows and festival appearances at the sold out Hellfest in France, Azkena Rock Festival in Spain and Fjord Fest in Norway in June and July. Check out the full list of Wovenhand’s upcoming shows below.
Wovenhand has spent the greater part of the past year on the road promoting its landmark release Refractory Obdurate (April 2014, Deathwish Inc./Glitterhouse), which received a much-deserved 8.2 rating from Pitchfork who called vocalist/lyricist David Eugene Edwards’ music “…incredibly personal, his albums real-time workshops for thinking through some of the biggest questions of his life and, really, our history.” The band also features newly-reunited Planes Mistaken For Stars members Chuck French and Neil Keener on guitar and bass, as well as Ordy Garrision on drums. Ten songs in all, Refractory Obdurate plays as a beautifully crafted patchwork that transcends genres and expectation; a true artistic achievement that only Wovenhand could offer.
Over the last two decades, David Eugene Edwards’ prolific work in both Wovenhand and the legendary 16 Horsepower has influenced and inspired a generation of musicians throughout the expansive alternative music world. Wovenhand cannot be described in traditional terms; its sound is an organic, weavework of neo-folk, post rock, punk, and alternative sounds. All of these come together as a vehicle for David’s soulful expression and constant spiritual self exploration. Sometimes sad and sorrowed and at other times uplifting, Wovenhand are always unforgettable in spirit and sound.
