Anglagard return to UK

Anglagard have announced a three-show mini-tour of the UK, which takes place in April.

The Swedish outfit will appear in Chesterfield, London and Bilston, with support from The Gift.

Their last studio album, 2012’s Viljans Oga, was released before the reformed band went through another lineup change that saw the return of guitarist-vocalist Tord Lindman. They recently confirmed that original guitarist Jonas Engdehard had also rejoined.

Anglagard say: “We are very excited returning to the original dual-guitarist concept. This opens up arrangements and timbres that are very close to our hearts, as well as giving the audience all the full original guitar scores of the older songs.”

The band – also including flautist-saxophonist Anna Holmgrem, keyboardist Linus Kase, bassist Johan Brand and drummer Erik Hammarstrom – plan to film during the tour for a later DVD release, and have begun working on material for their next album.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
