They’ll be joined by Belgian black metallers, Wiegedood, and Ginger Wildheart’s noise outfit, Mutation, at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 4.
The event will mark an exclusive UK performance for doom quartet, Psychedelic Witchcraft.
Singer Virginia Monti said: “We are excited to hit the UK for the first time, joining the outstanding Damnation Festival line-up for this year’s edition. Psychedelic Witchcraft is set to hypnotise the masses with magical vibes alongside slabs of darkwave rock and roll. We will also be performing some new material from our upcoming debut record on Listenable Records due out later this year. Thanks to Damnation Festival for having us, We look forward to seeing you there.”
The event is also significant for Ginger Wildheart, who added: “This will be the first festival appearance for Mutation, so it marks a special place in our timeline. We plan on playing as many festivals as we possibly can, but we will never forget our first. We can’t wait to bring our unique brand of noise and extreme volume. We plan on breaking ourselves and we hope that we’ll play to people with the same dedication. Damnation will be a landmark event for Mutation.”
Wiegedood played their first UK show at Damnation Festival in 2015, and they are looking forward to returning to the Terrorizer Stage.
The band said: “We’re proud to return to Leeds, playing songs from our new record as well as our first album.”
