Solstafir have announced a 2019 European tour.

The Icelandic outfit will play a total of 17 dates under The Midnight Sun: A Light In The Storm banner.

The shows will kick off at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall on March 10 and wrap up with performance at Prague’s Palac Akropolis on March 26.

The live dates will mark the end of the touring cycle in support of their 2017 album Berdreyminn (opens in new tab), with the band joined onstage by a string section.

A statement reads: “A different approach will define this particular tour – the focus here will not only be on Berdreyminn. Inspiration will also be drawn from a wider canon – a leaning towards the mellower side, to the sublime. 

“Solstafir have long since enveloped their audience in a wave of emotion – here they will cocoon, then fly free to the skies.”

Tickets will go on sale from 10am local time on Thursday (December 20).
