Cinematic Summer Tour information:

For this forward-thinking concept, ENSLAVED joined forces with three festivals, to present fans with three different shows. After a hugely successful stream in conjunction with Roadburn Festival, the band have two remaining shows left:

  • July 30th – in cooperation with Roadburn, the tour launches with a “Chronicles Of The Northbound” show.
  • August 20th – the second show will be a “Below The Lights” setpresented by Beyond The Gates festival.
  • September 30th – the band will end their virtual tour at Summer Breeze festival with a presentation of some new songs, for “Utgard – The Journey Within“.

Guitarist Ivar stated: “‘We must stick apart’ is a proverb of Discordianism (a religion I might or might not have just made up) that might fit the situation we are all in now. We are all isolated in various degrees; and we all miss live music. So, we have stuck apart and with our fantastic team of super-people in management, label and booking, plus three of our best friends who happen to be the very creme de la creme of European Festivals; we are now able to present this digital festival-tour. We are already hard at work preparing sets and shows that will make this one for the (e-)books. Thank you for your support, faith in us and patience – to have fans like you is an absolute privilege. See you in the ether!”

All shows will be streamed here: http://nblast.de/EnslavedYouTube
