Satyricon expand Deep calleth upon Deep world tour


Satyricon have announced that they’ll play shows in Australia and Japan in the coming months.

They’ve lined up the dates in support of their latest album Deep calleth upon Deep, which was released in September last year via Napalm Records.

They’ll play five dates in Australia in April and two shows in Japan in May. The newly announced concerts will follow their European run and come just before they embark on a road trip across North America.

Vocalist and guitarist Satyr says: “Back in the day, Australia was one of the first countries where people were showing a great deal of interest in what we were doing on the other side of Earth, in Norway.

“With 2006 album Now, Diabolical we finally got to experience Australia ourselves, and ever since it has been of our favourite places to come visit. Our fans there get what we do and they usually show up in great numbers.”

He adds: “As for Japan, even now, the crowd in Tokyo and their warrior-like approach to watching us play, is something we use as a reference internally.

“Tokyo is one of the greatest places on Earth for Satyricon to play while Osaka has been getting better and better every time. Going to Australia and Japan is bound to be some of the best stops on the World Tour.”

In addition, it’s also been announced that Satyricon have been shortlisted for a Norwegian Grammy – the Spelleman – in the Metal category. It’s the third time the band have been nominated.

Satyr adds: “We are humbled by the massive international reception of Deep calleth upon Deep, and this nomination is definitely for the fans. They have earned it through showing such dedication to the songs on this record!”
