Enslaved will be playing a virtual concert as part of the Verftet Online Music Festival in Bergen, Norway on April 1. The event will be streamed on BT.no and YouTube.
“When the old Bergen ring-fox Mikal Telle asked us to join his and local venue USF’s fantastic initiative that is this festival, we pretty much said ‘yes and thanks for asking!’ before he could finish the sentence.
Of course, we are itching to play now that the world of live music is on halt, but we also saw a chance to get our live music out there to all the fantastic fans out there. The studio recordings is, of course, a pillar in what Enslaved is, but without the other pillar of playing high-energy shows and creating musical magick together with our magnificent audience, things get out of balance. Now we will have a chance to restore that balance for a virtual time with all of you — and time is time no matter what matter it moves through, right? See you in the ether!”
As previously reported, Enslaved’s new album “Utgard” will be released this fall and the first single will be released on May 22.
