Igorrr commented:

“Thrilled to announce this incredible tour for Spring 2023 in Europe 😮

We know a lot of you haven’t had the possibility to come and see us yet as most of the concerts were sold out during the last EU tour, so we decided to make a LAST run for Spirituality and Distortion in Europe !

We bring on the road with us the amazing Amenra, Der Weg einer Freiheit and Hangman’s Chair, I really can’t wait for this one, it’s gonna be memorable for all of us.

Also, all the band is very happy and excited to welcome Marthe Alexandre as our new mezzo soprano ! You will see her with us on this tour 🙂

On a side note 🇺🇸, we also know that a lot of people are asking about the rescheduled dates of the American tour: We are still working on it, it’s a tough work and it really takes time, but we do our best to make it happen as soon as possible.

The tickets goes live on Friday 9th of September !!”

Igorrr Postpone North American Tour With Melt-Banana & Vowws

Igorrr have postponed their North American tour with Melt-Banana and Vowws. The band commented:

“Once again, we are deeply sorry to announce that our upcoming North American tour is postponed. The work visa of one of our band members won’t be delivered in time, despite having started this process months ago. No need to say that it’s a huge frustration for all of us. Our booking agents are currently re-scheduling the whole tour as we speak, for later in 2022. We’ll let you know very soon about the new dates. All tickets will be honored and the lineup will remain the same. Thanks for your patience and support, it means the world to us.”

Igorrr Premiere “Camel Dancefloor” Live Video

Igorrr have premiered a new live video for their song “Camel Dancefloor.” The clip was recorded during the band’s set at the 2021 Pol’and’Rock Festival in Makowice, Poland. The track is from their latest album “Spirituality And Distortion.”

Igorrr Announce New Lineup

Igorrr have parted ways with vocalists Laurent Lunoir and Laure Le Prunenec. JB Le Bail and Aphrodite Patoulidou will be taking their places. Furthermore, guitarist Martyn Clement has since joined the band as well.

The group issued the following statement:

“Few updates to share with you ! We are working hard for all the summer shows at the moment! Covid didn’t help us a lot, to say the least, but this led us to very positive changes in the band :

Laurent decided to not get vaccinated, according to his personal beliefs. Even if we disagree with him, we respect his decision of course, however this has some consequences, regarding his ability to travel with us mainly, so, to be part of the line-up for the future. To say it shortly, Laurent is not a part of the project anymore.

In the meantime, Laure informed us, after this weird “off” period in our artistic journey that she wanted more time to focus on her private life and didn’t show up at the rehearsals. As well, we fully support her.

We are of course sad to see a page of Igorrr to be over, and we wish them the best for the future, but this led us to the awesome news : we are welcoming 3 new incredible people in the band: first, the greek soprano Aphrodite Patoulidou and JB Le Bail as our new vocalists, and finally Martyn Clement as our guitar player.

It is, as challenging as exciting for us, to present to our audience this new live performance, where we’ll play many songs from our last album “Spirituality and Distortion“, plus, of course, some good ol’ Igorrr‘s tunes. Can’t wait to see you, and thanks for your support all those years 🤘🏼”

Igorrr Premiere “Downgrade Desert” Video

Igorrr have premiered a new video for their song “Downgrade Desert.” This track is from their latest album “Spirituality And Distortion.” Gautier Serre commented:

“After the crazy ‘Opus Brain‘ video in 2017, Fabian Lüscher, his amazing crew and me, decided to do it again, but this time to shoot this magnificent video for the track Downgrade Desert. Intense shooting, crazy pictures, I hope you will enjoy the clip as much as we suffered doing it. Of course, the real star here is the camel.”

Igorrr Premiere New Song “Camel Dancefloor”

Igorrr have premiered a new song titled “Camel Dancefloor.” This track is from the band’s new album “Spirituality And Distortion,” which will be released on March 27.

Gautier Serre commented:

“On an album, there is always a track that you are more addicted to. ‘Camel Dancefloor‘ is this one track that I always come and listen to it by necessity, very regularly.

This acoustic guitar loop you find almost all the way long on this track is something which I got completely obsessed with – I dreamed about it – I was playing it every day. I’m not sure how the brain works, but this melody has something that worked on me.

As a synesthetic person, this sound brings a very beautiful Brown/Châtain/Orange color to my mind, in an unusual clear and strong manner. This has a very strong Arabic vibe in it, it was awesome to be able to underline it even more with Antony Miranda playing this very special guitar, and Timba Harris again to make it sound even more Arabic and specific like it’s coming straight from a camel mind.

To be perfectly honest, I’m sure that if a camel would have a human similar music sensibility and a taste for extreme music, ‘Camel Dancefloor‘ would perfectly be the soundtrack of his mind. At this point, it’s perfectly logical for me that this track has to end with an excessively heavy metal riffing.”
