Satyricon announce 2017 European tour


Satyricon have announced a 23-date European tour.

The shows have been lined up in support of their as-yet-untitled new album, which is expected to launch later this year.

Vocalist and guitarist Sigurd ‘Satyr’ Wongraven says: “The vast majority of our shows have been sold out in recent years and it makes me very thankful and proud.

“Our fans know that we are done a long time ago with relentless touring, so that makes every opportunity special to us now.

“I know our new album is one that our fans will love and we know how much people appreciate Satyricon as a live band. We are going to make every show unforgettable.”

Satyricon revealed to Metal Hammer last year that the follow-up to their self-titled 2013 album would be recorded in a barn on a farm close to Oslo, Norway.

Wongraven said: “We’ve been jamming in a barn for a long time. Every time we go there, the atmosphere is really nice – we really enjoy being there.

“I just said, ‘We play so well when we’re here – the spirit and the soul, and what we do comes across as unique. What if we brought recording equipment and engineers here, instead of bringing Satyricon to a studio?’ So we’re doing that.”

Tickets for the newly announced shows are available now. Find a full list of tour dates below.
