Elder & Kadavar Premiere “From Deep Within” Video

Elder commented:

“We’re happy to show you all the first song from our new record with Kadavar, entitled ‘From Deep Within!’.

Working on this album together was a really refreshing and new experience for us. This track in particular was the first we worked on after our initial jam sessions, fleshed out in a day, and it does a great job of capturing both bands’ creative energy. We hope you dig it and look forward to getting this thing out there on December 3rd!

You can preorder Eldovar now at Robotor Records and Stickman Records. North American friends! Distro is being sorted out. We will inform you which shops you can order from as soon as we have the info. Thanks for your support!”

Elder & Kadavar Join Forces For New Collaborative Album “Eldovar: A Story Of Darkness & Light”

Elder and Kadavar have joined forces for a new collaborative album called “Eldovar: A Story Of Darkness & Light.” Details for the effort are still pending, but the first single is scheduled to be released on October 22.

Elder commented:

“Some of you have probably noticed a few clips of us playing with our friends in Kadavar in their own Robotor Studios this spring. Over the past years, Elder has been split up across continents, with three members in Germany and one in the US – a difficult situation exacerbated by lockdowns and travel restrictions.

In times of this social and creative isolation, our Berlin-based members teamed up with Lupus, Tiger and Dragon to write and record some music together. We’ve been tight-lipped about this project so far, but today we’re happy to finally shed some light on our creation.

What began as an idea to just jam with a ‘let’s-see-what-happens!’ mentality became a trip on its own, and after months of digging through jam sessions, writing and re-writing parts and developing a plan not just for an improvised record but for a true concept album, we’re proud to give a first glimpse of ‘ELDOVAR: A Story of Darkness & Light’.

We’re very excited to share more details with you very soon. Stay tuned for pre-order information and a first single on October 22nd. Here’s the album artwork for starters, cover photo by Kadavar’s very own Lupus Lindemann and artwork by Max Groundstroem.”

Elder Finishing Up New Album

It looks like Elder’s new album is pretty much finished. The band said the following about that:

“That’s a wrap. Thanks to @_linda_gerdes_ and @cloudshillmusic for an awesome time in the studio. Our next album is (mostly) in the bag and we couldn’t be more stoked! Can’t say yet when you can expect to hear it – pretty much every link in the record making chain is still FUBAR at the moment – but you know we’ll keep ya posted. #elderband #cloudshill #psychrock #progrock #heavypsych”

Elder commented:

“Probably it comes as no great surprise that we are forced to reschedule our North American tour dates in May to the next available – and hopefully safe – timeframe of November/December. We’re sorry to keep you waiting for so long about an update on this, but coordinating with all parties to rebook a tour under the currently hectic circumstances took a little longer than planned. Scrambling to replan a tour also meant that some plans had to change with availabilities; as such we were forced to cancel our Dallas and Cleveland shows (to be rescheduled later this year!).

Any tickets purchased for rescheduled concerts will remain valid until the new date; if you can’t/don’t want to hold onto your ticket, you can of course get a refund from the point of purchase. We’re aware that a lot of people are falling on hard times right now, but if you can help your local promoters by holding onto a ticket, it’s a small contribution to keep our scene going during this shutdown.

Two small silver linings: Bask is still able to join us on these new dates, and our Boston show has been moved to the larger Middle East downstairs (more tickets are available). Boston folks please note! Due to the venue change, your tickets will be refunded automatically, you’ll have to grab new ones for the new show. Sorry about that.

We are absolutely heartbroken to disappoint fans, especially at the culmination of several years’ work on a new record, but sadly we don’t have any alternative given the present circumstances. This is our passion, our lives and our livelihoods, and yet we’re far from having it the worst of all affected by COVID-19. We hope that all of you will stay safe and healthy and help others to do the same so that we can see you in the fall.

Regarding our upcoming shows in June in Europe, so far both Roskilde Festival and Hellfest Open Air Festival have been cancelled and there is much uncertainty about how the situation here will look in the summer. We’re actively in contact with our show promoters and will continue to update you on the developments.

Thank you all for your understanding and support!”

Despite this, Elder’s new album “Omens” will still be released on April 24.
