Thee Oh Sees to headline Thursday night at REVERENCE FESTIVAL VALADA 2016 in Portugal

Portugal’s biggest heavy, psyche and indie music gathering REVERENCE VALADA FESTIVAL unveiled the full lineup for the first night of the festival. Like every year, a national promoter is curating this opening party, with Black Bass and Évora Psych Fest to invite THEE OH SEES and seven other bands to play Parque de Merendas in Valada on September 8th, 2016. 


Led by electric frontman and multi-instrumentist John Dwyer, San Francisco’s garage psych-punk legends THEE OH SEES are back in Portugal to present their latest outing Mutilator Defeated at Last. Reknown for delivering hectic dance-inducing performances, there is none better than Thee Oh Sees to kick off the REVERENCE VALADA party!
Also from the U.S., CHAIN & THE GANG embody raw and soulful rock’n’roll at its best, with hell-raising vocalist Svenonius preaching rock sermons as if it was his last day on Earth… and yours.
In the garage psych rock field, Bordeaux-based J.C. SATÀN have proven to be a leading act in the French scene. With largely acclaimed full-lengths and insane boundary-free sets, the band have made a reputation of solid performers throughout the years. Originally from Paris and relocated in the Californian desert, heavy psych/krautrock trio BLAAK HEAT will grace the Valada crowd with a new album produced by Grammy Award-winning Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet). Not to be missed.
Also confirmed to play the first day at REVERENCE VALADA are Porto’s garage surf punk duo THE SUNFLOWERS, heavy psychsters SUN MAMMUTH and explosive garage punk trio 800 GONDOMAR.
