Rocket Showcase announced for Supersonic 2020
We are incredibly flattered to have been asked by Supersonic to bring a bunch of Rocket bands to their ever great festival in Birmingham on 17-19 July.
Tickets go live tomorrow (Friday 28th) at 10am: Supersonic
Alongside Harga, Puce Mary, Rakta, Richard Dawson etc we are very happy to have these Rocket artists playing:
GNOD & João Pais Filipe presents "FACĄ DE FOGO”
+ very special guest TBA
All the names on the list so far are probably recognisable, though many of you won't recognise J. Zunz - this is the warped solo project by Lorena Quintanilla from Lorelle Meets the Obsolete, more info about this will appear soon.
Also excited to reveal that GNOD and João Pais Filipe present their collaboration called "FACĄ DE FOGO", about this project:
"After years of mutual respect and admiration, Gnod and João Pais Filipe, challenged by the portuguese label Lovers & Lollypops, found themselves immersed on a collaboration in the beginning of 2019.
Imagined, assembled and recorded during a week at João Pais Filipe’s workshop in Campanhã, in the east side of Porto, Faca de Fogo emerged as one, combining the polyrhythms of the percussionist and gong maker with the mantras of the UK collective, paying attention to blind spots of their sound. Expect an album in summer 2020 released on the relentlessly on it Rocket Recordings."
