BOSS KELOID TO BRING THEIR SOARING SLUDGE TO DESERTFEST 2017!
Having released one of the best albums of 2016 – the excellent Herb Your Enthusiasm - Wigan’s finest Boss Keloid are bringing their gargantuan riffs to Desertfest 2017.
Combining the raw power of sludge with a decidedly technical edge (perhaps owing to guitarist Paul Swarbrick’s other gig as an architect), Boss Keloid are a band that have gone from strength to strength since they came onto the scene with their debut release, 2010’s Angular Beef Lesson. In 2013 the band released their debut proper, The Calming Influence of Teeth, but it was last year’s monumental Herb Your Enthusiasm (which was recorded at Skyhammer Studios by Chris Fielding and released on the associated Black Bow Records) which saw Boss Keloid take a huge step forward in terms of songwriting, craft, and prominence in the UK scene. Propelled by some furious riffing, Boss Keloid are also blessed with a fantastic vocalist in Alex Hurst whose impressive pipes are capable of both ear splitting screams and soaring melodies (and if you keep a keen ear out, you’ll hear Conan’s Jon Davis and Chris Fielding pop up with occasional harmonies on the latest album…)
So, come get your smoke on and bow down to the riff when Boss Keloid play the HDP/WPC stage.
