Ulver have sneak released a new three-track EP titled Sic Transit Gloria Mundi.

The band surprised everyone by launching the EP to coincide with the start of their European tour in support of latest album The Assassination Of Julius Caesar, which arrived in April this year via House Of Mythology.

The EP features the new songs Echo Chamber (Room Of Tears) and Bring Out Your Dead, along with a cover of Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s The Power Of Love – originally released in late 1984. The EP was completed in the band’s new studio in Oslo.

David Hall and Vivek Venkatesh have worked on videos for the two track using footage from Ulver’s concert at the Labirinto della Masone, Italy, on June 3.

Watch both videos below and find a list of Ulver’s European tour dates.

Sic Transit Gloria Mundi is available via Bandcamp, with releases on other digital services to be announced in due course. Physical copies will be made available through House Of Mythology at a date yet to be decided.
