Roadburn (www.roadburn.nl ) presented the band like this:
"Roadburn Festival is proud to announce that Danish cosmonauts DRAGONTEARS will be playing the Saturday Roadburn date, Saturday, April 16th, Midi Theatre, Tilburg, Holland. DRAGONTEARS, revolving around Lorenzo Woodrose and members of Baby Woodrose and On Trial rarely perform live, and besides a few shows in their homeland, the band’s only performance outside of Denmark took place at Roadburn 2009. DRAGONTEARS has a penchant for mining the psychedelic sounds of the late ’60s (think the 13th Floor Elevators meets Syd Barrett or The Silver Apples meets MC5), as showcased on much acclaimed albums like '2000 Micrograms From Home' and 'Tambourine Freak Machine'. Needless to say that we’re really excited about DRAGONTEARS returning to Roadburn, throwing the festival attendees into a vortex of fuzz fueled riffs, and bubbly wah-wah guitars, all manipulated to take us into a hypnotic journey through the center of the mind. Or as the band puts it on their latest album — Turn On, Tune In, Fuck Off!!"
