ADCX TO BRING SPACE DOOM MADNESS TO THE OLD EMPIRE STAGE!
We’re always happy to extract some young blood and splatter it across the Desertfest lineup, which is why we’re delighted to announce that Essex upstarts ADCX will be hitting the Old Empire Stage at Desertfest 2018.
A self-classified "space doom collective" from Southend-On-Sea (because, why the fuck not?), ADCX (named after the 1957 Harry Rasky film 'A Day Called X') are way more than just your average rock band. Fusing a musical sound that takes everything from black metal and doom to avant-garde jazz, krautrock, shoegaze, doomgaze, blackgaze, post-rock, post-post-rock and even hardcore, ADCX also blend in blogs, films, light projections and short stories into one big sausage stew of of artistic intelligence. And yep, it sounds brilliant. Bonkers, but brilliant.
Sure to be smashing out smash hits from their startlingly debut The Day I Heard the Moon Roar, alongside a heap of other contrasting and colliding jams, ADCX need to be seen to be believed.
