Finland’s legendary Von Hertzen Brothers are delighted to announce a UK tour in May 2022. The tour will support the imminent release of their new studio album, “Red Alert in the Blue Forest”, in March 2022, their first release since 2017.  
Mikko Von Hertzen says, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to come over and share with you the magical vibes of the Blue Forest. Admittedly (and due to many obstacles on the way), it’s been way too long since we played in the UK… But now the time is right, and the band is super excited and ready to do so!  Witnessing these uncertain times, we sincerely hope that the dark clouds hanging over the world have dispersed by May and that the war is actually over. What we need now as humans is to come together with good intentions and with our hearts filled with peace and empathy. There’s no better way to do so than collectively gather to enjoy art and music. We hope you haven’t forgotten us, and we would love to see you all at the gigs!”
The May 2022 tour will be the band’s first UK live dates since2018. An accomplished live act, Von Hertzen Brothers have performed in 22 countries. Their live shows have been described as a mesmerising, magical and thought provoking.  The artists they have played with hint at the breadth and depth of their music and include the likes of Foo Fighters, Neil Young and Biffy Clyro.

“Red Alert in the Blue Forest” is a stunning album. The sounds, rhythms and melodies of the album reflect the brothers’ unique upbringing – both musically and personally. Weaving in the mysticism of Finnish folklore and the countryside they grew up immersed in, the album track “Northern Lights” actually features distinct and rarely heard sounds of the Aurora Borealis as captured by Professor Unto K. Laine
Musically hard to categorise, drawing on elements of rock, folk, progressive and pop, “Red Alert in the Blue Forest” is an album that is dazzling in its scope.
