Norwegian blackened avant-gardists ENSLAVED have announced a European tour for May 2021, having just released their acclaimed new studio album Utgard little over a week ago. The live run is set to include nineteen dates taking the band across seven countries, accompanied by INTRONAUT, OBSIDIAN KINGDOM and CROWN.
Please read the band’s statement as follows: “We are aware of the uncertainty surrounding any activities being planned for the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, incurable optimism and a pragmatic outlook is in our nature. This has guided us in making plans for May 2021; plans for a tour that will finally bring the Utgard live concept outside of Norway. Expect to see an Enslaved show unlike anything you have seen before!!! Tickets will go on sale this Friday October 16th.
“We cannot wait to hit the road with class acts such as INTRONAUT, OBSIDIAN KINGDOM and CROWN. And yes… in case we cannot bring Utgard to the stage in May 2021 — we already have a backup solution for early 2022 (Peter Griffin-style sigh). Any purchased tickets will of course remain valid! We will observe the situation closely and keep you updated. We have high hopes that Utgard can be presented to the world, live on stage in May 2021. This is who we are. Of course, the health of everyone involved is our number one priority, and we will never compromise on that. Stay safe! See you in the flesh!”
