Kurt Vile & The Violators + Imarhan
Kurt Vile first came to the fore as a founding member of indie rock band The War On Drugs. When that band broke through in 2008 with debut “Wagonwheel Blues”, Vile decided to strike out on his own. The talented singersongwriter writes songs with irresistable melodies, gritty guitar parts and narcotic psychedelia. After breaking through himself with album “Smoke Rings For My Halo”, Kurt Vile returned with a new masterpiece full of extended guitar gems. On 25 September his new studio album ‘b’lieve i’m going down..’ was released. On stage he is supported by his backing band The Violators.
Imarhan is the name of the new band consisting of Tinariwen members. Their debut album will come out in the spring of 2016 through City Slang.
