Your inevitable Desertfest hangover is going to get worse before it gets better because Liverpool-by-way-of-Lousiana dirge chiefs Iron Witch are coming to bring the misery at Desertfest 2017.

Formed in 2010, the nucleus of Iron Witch’s sound has always been an intoxicating triumvirate of Black Sabbath, Black Flag, and Eyehategod. What’s not to like about that? A series of demos, EPs and a split with The Atrocity Exhibit were compiled and presented as the excellently titled First Four Beers (Witch Hunter Records) in 2015 in anticipation for this year’s debut full length A Harrowed Dawn (Secret Law Record). Displaying a more mature and varied sound, the album has been widely praised, being described as the hangover after the party, a sentiment that we’d agree with whole-heartedly.

Having gone from strength to strength and with a reputation as one of the best live bands in the Underground right now, we’re delighted to be bringing them back to Desertfest for the first time since 2012.
