Satyricon Postpone Australia & Japan Dates

Satyricon have postponed their shows in Australia and Japan until September. Satyr commented:

“We had on and off-stage personnel dropping out on us at the last minute for this tour. We would have had to really compromise on the quality of our shows, which is something that we wouldn’t want to do when we go to Australia and Japan. It’s better for us to postpone and come back and do this properly.”

Tour Dates:

09/04 – Capitol – Perth, Australia
09/06 – Max Watts – Melbourne, Australia
09/07 – Metro Theatre – Sydney, Australia
09/08 – Transit Bar – Canberra, Australia
09/09 – The Triffid – Brisbane, Australia

09/12 – Unit – Tokyo, Japan

Satyricon Announce “Final” North American Headlining Tour

Satyricon will be heading out on “one final headlining tour” of North America this May. Inquisition will serve as support.

Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven commented:

“We are excited to announce that we will be touring in the US and Canada. As our U.S fans will have noticed, we haven’t toured there in nine years. There are many reasons for that. I like America and I like Americans, but unfortunately touring there has been a difficult chapter in the history of Satyricon.

I can’t guarantee what the future holds, but we did not go on the last record, so I am hoping that one final headlining tour can be a good way of sharing some electric musical moments with our U.S fans, whom we love just as much as all our other fans across the world. See you all soon.”

It is worth noting that this doesn’t necessarily mean the band is coming to an end. It could just mean that they are just planning to stick to touring Europe, etc.

Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven On Satyricon’s Covers Album: “We Had To Shelve It Because ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep’ Took All Of Our Attention”

Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven was recently interviewed by Israel’s “Met Al Metal” and was asked about the covers album Satyricon was previously working on. He responded by saying they decided to shift their focus to “Deep Calleth Upon Deep”, due to it being “a more important project.”

Satyr said the following:

“That is something that we did do quite a lot of work with, but we had to shelve it because ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep’ took all of our attention. “In general, we would like to pick up on that again. I don’t know when that will happen, because we have to really want to do it — we can’t just do it because it’s something that we didn’t finish; we have to finish it because we want to finish it. When we left it on the shelf, it was because, even though we were enjoying it, it took a lot of time and it took time away from the [‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep’] album, which we thought was a more important project. So when you do a project like a covers album, it has to be because there is space for it in your life right now. But once we get there, yeah, it’s possible.”

He also added:

“We’ve been doing songs from musical genres that have been important to us that do not necessarily relate to black metal only. So we’ve been jamming covers from New Wave Of British Heavy Metal genre, we’ve been jamming folk music, we’ve done punk rock, ’70s hard rock… That was the idea — that we were gonna work on things that have been influential to our careers, but not black metal.”

Satyricon Premiere “To Your Brethren In The Dark” Video

Satyricon have premiered a new video for their song “To Your Brethren In The Dark,” via Metal Injection. This song is from the band’s latest album “Deep Calleth Upon Deep.”

Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven commented:

“I wanted ‘To Your Brethren In The Dark‘ to be a director’s interpretation of the song, rather than a band performance type of thing. Seeing what we do through the eyes of another artist is always interesting to me and just like the song, the video has become a little bit of a journey on it’s own. ‘To Your Brethren In The Dark‘ is definitely one of the flagship songs on the record.

It is about emotion, our nature, the spirits, the autumn, the sombre and rainy days, those who we lost and the ones who we have not met yet. You could say it is a tribute to the sorrow in man and to the drama of the nature we surround ourselves with. A song for the dark towers of the past and those who will rise in the future. Pass the torch to your brethren in the dark.”
