THE OBSESSED RETURN TO THE UK AT DESERTFEST 2018!
Wino and Co exceeded the lofty expectations placed on them with their comeback album Sacred, so Desertfest is extremely proud to announce they will be visiting Camden this year!
Right up there with the fathers of US doom, such as Pentagram and St Vitus, The Obsessed shouldn’t need too much of an introduction here. Frontman, Wino, is the embodiment of the rock survivor, having been through all the highs and lows that this world can inflict. The Obsessed holds an eminent place in his history as its roots can be traced all the way back to 1976 with Wino’s first band, Warhorse, which became The Obsessed soon after.
Reid Raley (Ex- Rwake) is currently providing the low frequency rumblings and Brian Costantino (Spirit Caravan) is thumping the tubs, and by the time Desertfest rolls around the gang will be honed to perfection after their late 2017 run of US shows, including a killer bill along with Clutch and Devin Townsend.
So get ready to wallow in your Obsession this coming May and catch the underground veterans in the form of their life at Desertfest 2018!
