Enslaved Planning Virtual Summer Tour


Enslaved have announced a virtual tour which they have dubbed the ‘Cinematic Summer Tour 2020‘. A press release outlined their plans for that:

‘In cooperation with Roadburn, the tour starts July 30th, with the “Chronicles Of The Northbound” show. Fans will be invited by the festival to choose their favorite ENSLAVED songs to create a career spanning set. The second show will be a “Below The Lights” set on August 20th, presented by Beyond The Gates festival.

The band will end their virtual tour at the Summer Breeze festival on September 30th, with the presentation of their new album in its entirety: ‘Utgard – The Journey Within‘.’

The band’s guitarist, etc. Ivar Bjørnson commented:

“We must stick apart’ is a proverb of Discordianism (a religion I might or might not have just made up) that might fit the situation we are all in now. We are all isolated in various degrees; and we all miss live music.

So, we have stuck apart and with our fantastic team of super-people in management, label and booking, plus three of our best friends who happen to be the very creme de la creme of European Festivals; we are now able to present this digital festival-tour.

We are already hard at work preparing sets and shows that will make this one for the (e-)books. Thank you for your support, faith in us and patience – to have fans like you is an absolute privilege. See you in the ether!”

The band’s fifteenth studio album “Utgard” will be released this fall. A limited edition 7″ for the recently released first single from it, “Homebound“, will be released on June 26th via Nuclear Blast.
