Efterklang - First North American Tour Dates In Seven Years
Efterklang : First North American Tour Dates In Seven Years
12th November 2019

After performing at Le Guess Who festival in Utrecht this weekend, Efterklang announce new North American spring tour dates.  The cross-country April/March tour dates mark the first time Efterklang has performed in North America in over seven years.  The band will perform in support of their acclaimed fifth studio record Altid Sammen, which was released earlier this fall on 4AD.  A full list of dates can be found below.

To accompany the tour announcement, Efterklang has released a session captured on 16mm film recorded in Copenhagen performing songs off the new album, “Verden Forsvinder” (the world disappears), “Vi er uendelig” (we are infinite) and “Hold mine hænder” (hold my hands) as a 7-piece.  The session is directed by Jonas Bang and Efterklang marks the first performers new series called Brodie Sessions.

Deep and sonorous, Altid Sammen (meaning “always together”) is steeped in the sonic experimentation that has long been their trademark since Tripper, the Danes’ 2004 debut.  As bold and ambitious in scope as their last collection of songs, Piramida, Casper Clausen (vocals), Mads Brauer (synths, electronics) and Rasmus Stolberg (bass) have taken another creative U-turn, this time fusing baroque instrumentation with their signature expansive sound.

'Altid Sammen' is available on vinyl, and CD via 4AD here +
Available on all platforms here +

Efterklang’s live shows have always been ambitious affairs and their Altid Sammen tour will be just as elaborate.  The band recently performed the record for a sold-out 2100 strong crowd at the iconic Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg, during Reeperbahn Festival, which you can watch here.  This month, the band will perform twice in Mexico.  North American shows will be on-sale from 12pm EST on 12th November.
