Cyclobe to Perform Live at The Wounded Galaxies Festival, Bloomington, Indiana


We are thrilled to announce our opening acts for the Wounded Galaxies Festival: Bladerunner, featuring John Zorn (sax), Bill Laswell (bass), and Dave Lombardo (drums); and Simulacrum, featuring John Medeski (organ), Matt Hollenberg (guitar), and Kenny Grohowski (drums). This will be, in Zorn’s words, “a loud intense rock double bill“.

We are very happy to announce we have confirmed the North American debut of Cyclobe at the Wounded Galaxies Festival! On Thursday, October 8th, Cyclobe will perform a live accompaniment for a special screening of Derek Jarman‘s Super 8 films Sulphur, Tarot, and Garden of Luxor at the Indiana University Cinema.

The following evening, they will perform a full concert at the Buskirk-Chumley Theatre with Matmos opening the show. These are must-see performances that will not happen again in the Midwest in our lifetimes. Stay tuned for further updates including the date tickets go on sale!


Wounded Galaxies is a festival of experimental media which will take place in Bloomington, Indiana, October 7th – 11th 2015.
