Solstafir add tour dates

Solstafir have extended their European tour to include five UK dates at the end of January.

The Icelandic outfit are currently on the road to support the launch of fifth album Otta, which appeared in August via Season Of Mist.

Frontman Addi Tryggvason recently described the follow-up to 2011’s Svartir Sandar as “a sudden change,” adding: “There are more vocal harmonies, exotic vocal lines. I want to try new things. I was really uncomfortable – I thought, ‘this is way too vulnerable!’ But you gain more confidence in doing it.”

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.
