Roskilde festival announces Rumble in Rhodos as one of five new acts for this years festival. Along with bands like Arctic Monkeys, Haim, Majors Lazer, Kasabian and Warpaint we’re ready to give the crowd the orange feeling by blowing their minds of with a solid performance.
As Roskilde says on their website: Rumble in Rhodos have gone through quite some changes. The Norwegians have become much more melodic and accessible. Grace and Nuance – their fourth album – lives up to its title. Here you get psychedelic pop – far away from the post-hardcore we first heard from them when they visited in 2008.
With that 82 bands are now announced of 160 in total.
Roskilde Festival 2014 takes place 29th of june till 6th of july this summer. Tickets for are up for sale and the price for an all-week ticket is: DKK 1,890.

Woke up fresh and it was a lovely day. 25 degrees and sunshine. Today is a short trip to Lille in northern France, so we took time to see Brussels. Marius is a geek, so he really wanted to check out the Atomium wich was built for the world Expo in the late fifties. After blasting the memorycards in our cameras we had a very nice lunch in grass just outside the city.
Lille has always treated us well. It’s the fourth time we play here and its always packed and a great atmosphere. The club, CCL, is a pretty intimate venue located underground in an old city building. We were, for the first time, arriving really early at the venue, so we had time to take a walk around the neighbourhood. We quickly realised that this part of town was very poor and shabby. Jeff, the promotor, told us that the streets we walked had the highest crime rate in the whole city. That could be, but nobody had the balls to fuck with us.
After soundcheck we went to a local bar to play pool and have a couple of Leffe. We just can´t get enough of that tasty fluid.
The support band was called “Bodybeat” and was a funk/elcetro crossover act from Lille. It was cool and the crowd was warmed up when we hit the stage. It was a packed, loud and sweaty and the crowd was great. It´s nice to play big venues, but nothing really brings a smile to our faces like a jam packed, warm and intimate show. Thank you again Lille! See you soon.
PS: Sorry about the lack of pictures on this post. We had to charge the batteries.
Quote of the day: “When we come back to Hanau, I will have to arrange eight funerals.” (Andy, referring to the “air” in the van)
Did a really nice trip today through the small French villages at the foot of the Alps, heading for Belgium. We had some croissants and coffee at a bakery in one of the small towns, before heading for Flandern. We´ve played Belgium several times, but this was our first time in Brussels.
Magasin 4 is a very cool venue located along the the city river. We were the headlining act today and since we arrived 90 minutes late we didn´t have time for a proper soundcheck. Fuck it, line check is allright, we´ve done it 100 times before on festivals.
Tonight was Belgium as always; four bands, dark and heavy duty. The first band played extremely loud doom rock for one and a half hour. The show included the classic interludes (samples between the songs) a woman screaming desperately, a lions roar and of course church bells. Actually something else was for some of us more interesting: Andy streamed the Champions League Final from the merch stand, so we could watch the game. Gabour, the other driver, screamed his heart out when Chelsea won the title, he´s doesn´t like Bayern Munich that much…yes, it´s an understatement.
The band that played before us, Anorak from France, was really cool. It was a really tight unit. We bonded with them after our show and we were amazed when they really liked our set since we sound like Hall & Oates compared to the rest of the bands. After the show we relaxed with laptops and Ricky Gervais´ Golden Globe compilation on youtube. No party tonight, we wanna see Brussels tomorrow and wake up fresh and ready to go. Stay tuned.
Quote of the day: “Geile scheiss!!” (Gabor the driver when Chelsea won the finals)
