The bill will now include two New York-based acts: Space rock duo White Hills and recently reunited death/doom trio Winter.

I had the opportunity to cover their Philadelphia show last September at the Starlight Ballroom during their Marijuanaut tour. You can find that coverage here.
I also managed to find some live footage from the show. (Thank you, Mantispirate.)
