Autarkh III at Roadburn festival

Autarkh III will be performing at Roadburn festival 2022 on Thursday April 21st!

Roadburn has joined forces with Paradox - Tilburg’s internationally renowned jazz club - for a special programme of performances. Roadburn has embraced experimental creativity in all its forms for many years now, and this Paradox curated line up shines a light specifically on avant-garde and jazz-influenced artists that embody the Roadburn ethos of redefining heaviness.

Stymied by the pandemic in terms of live performances, Tilburg based band, Autarkh, haven’t idled creatively. Almost a year ago their ambient alter ego, Autarkh III, made its live debut at Roadburn Redux, performing a reimagining of Autarkh’s Form In Motion album through a lens of improv and drone.

And now we’re thrilled to welcome them back to Roadburn for a reprise, this time in front of a live audience.The trio consists of Autarkh members David Luiten (vocals / guitars), Michel Nienhuis (vocals / guitars) and Tijnn Verbruggen (live electronics), and their performances centre around an ambitious reinterpreting the themes and sonic palette of Autarkh’s material - which is sure to delight the fans of avant garde and experimental sounds among us.

Michel Nienhuis comments: "Another winter of lockdowns and no shows has made all of us eager to play on stage and finally share music with a live audience. We feel honoured to continue our collaboration with Roadburn and Paradox, and start a new one with Roadburn Records, who will be releasing our Roadburn Redux 2021 registration. Let 2022 be filled with live music!”

So, as well as witnessing Autarkh III in action at Roadburn you can pick up an album to take home with you too!
