Desertscene are pleased to announce the mighty Saint Vitus will be returning to London this October. After slaying on the epic Roundhouse stage at this year's Desertfest, we had to bring them back over for a show of their own. And to add to the riffage, we've invited Mos Generator and Poseidon along for the wild ride too.
Almost four decades since their formation, kings of the underground, Saint Vitus, are still going strong. Responsible for iconic records of the doom scene, such as their self-titled debut and Born Too Late, the L.A. based slow moving freight train of riffs can't be stopped - even after a decade long hiatus, the band couldn't be kept down.
Prior to 2015, many of us thought we were born too late to see Saint Vitus on stage with their original vocalist Scott Reagers, but it was always too exciting a prospect not to happen again. Joined by fellow surviving member from the band's original line-up, Dave Chandler (guitar) as well as Pat Bruders (bass) and Henry Vasquez (drums), Saint Vitus are a rejuvenated band marching forward with purpose; as anyone who caught their slot at this year's Desertfest can attest to.
One of the pillars of doom, Saint Vitus are a must see for any fan of low and slow heaviness. On top of the exceptional Vitus, we've bagged a couple of great supports for the night. Main support comes courtesy of throwback riff dealers Mos Generator. Fronted by Tony Reed, Mos Generator have been serving up slices of the seventies since the early noughties. Opening the night are London's own doom merchants, the phenomenally heavy and atmospheric Poseidon. Don't miss your chance to catch the masters at work when they hit up The Underworld on October 1st.
