Occult rock pioneers Coven return: “We thought people were going to kill us!”—Jonathan Selzer, Team Rock

Coven, the recently resurrected band whose scandalous 1969 album Witchcraft Destroys Minds And Reaps Souls laid the foundations for occult rock and much more besides, have announced that they will playing UK for the first time in the history, bringing their diabolist and delirious energies to The Dome in north London on September 11.

Forged in 1968 at the behest of singer Jinx Dawson drummer Steve Ross and bassist Oz Osbourne just as the era of peace and love’s death throes were mutating and manifesting darker forces, Coven drew from the liberating nature of the scene around them and took it into new realms of devotional fervour, their theatrical live shows, treated as devout Satanic rites and gathering forces that would rampant through their still startling debut.
