Following the success of their initial live stream show in April, acclaimed Norwegian band KVELERTAK have revealed fresh plans for new date, “Live From Amper Tone Studio”, on Saturday, June 20th!
The set will once again be broadcast via Vierlive
at 9pm CET (8pm BST / 2pm CST).
KVELERTAK elaborate further, commenting, “Hello friends!
First of all, we hope that all of you are safe and in good health! We REALLY miss playing shows and interacting with our fans…but we are fortunate to be able to rehearse and continue to make new music.
We were supposed to be out playing festivals right now and continuing to promote our newest album SPLID. Since that’s not possible we have planned a new live stream event to try and make up for it. We’ve booked Amper Tone Studio in Oslo (the studio we recorded Nattesferd) and turned it into a Kvelertak “Game Show” set. We’ll be spinning the Kvelertak “Setlist of Fortune” – we’ve dug up some old classics and rehearsed songs we’ve never, or seldom, played live before. There will be a proper Q&A and we’ll take a couple requests. Everyone who buys a ticket will be entitled to join a competition to win some pretty rad prizes. We’ll be giving out a GUITAR, Kvelertak limited numbered skate deck, rare demos, custom picks, signed vinyls, our onstage prop owls, etc.
We had more fun than we expected on the last stream (check that out) and we hope you did as well! Come join us again!
Thank you all for the support!”
Long awaited, fourth studio album ‘Splid’ is out now via Rise Records. It is the first from KVELERTAK since 2016’s ‘Nattesferd’ and is also the recorded debut of their new singer, Ivar Nikolaisen, who joined the group in 2018. The album was recorded with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Code Orange, Zeal & Ardor, Every Time I Die, Dillinger Escape Plan, High On Fire) at Godcity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts.
The band kicked off 2020 by unveiling new song and video ‘Crack Of Doom’, featuring Troy Sanders of Mastodon. Watch the official video here
. The video is directed by the award winning, renowned Norwegian stills photographer and music video director Stian Andersen. Stian has been a part of the KVELERTAK circle for many years, having also directed their previous videos for “Kvelertak
” and “Bronsegud
”. Earlier, the group shared first new song ‘Bråtebrann’, also taken from ‘Splid’, which was highlighted as a Track Of The Week on The Guardian
‘s website. Listen to it on YouTube here
KVELERTAK state, “‘Splid’ (‘discord’ in English) is a deep dive into western gluttony, our own stupidity, and the abyss of the earth. Working with Kurt again has been amazing and we’re extremely happy with the production. We’ve pushed ourselves to the edge this last year – musically, physically, and mentally. The result is one hour of catchy riffs, punk rock, and heavy metal influenced by a world in discord to accompany our way towards Ragnarok.”
