Enslaved are also pleased to reveal an exclusive merchandise range accompanying theCinematic Summer Tour, with designs viewable below inc. more information. To give everyone the chance to be part of this completely novum in music, all three shows will be free of charge, however Enslaved have launched a donation link if fans wish to make a contribution towards the costs of putting the shows on.
Roadburn‘s Artistic Director Walter Hoeijmakers previously stated:
“From their impromptu headlining slot at Roadburn 2008 to being an artist in residence, and Ivar as our co-curator (along with Einar Selvik), there has always been a very strong, palpable connection betweenEnslaved and Roadburn – artistically, musically and personally. Being able to support Enslaved on thisCinematic Summer Tour, and hosting their Chronicles Of The Northbound performance makes us feel humble, and proud as well, as it’s a testimony to our everlasting friendship. Plus, it will keep much needed shows going in these testing times, albeit virtual. It will keep us feel alive, and fuels our strength to overcome the horrible adversity we’re currently facing. Thank you so much for offering us hope and comfort through your musical journey of discovery, Enslaved.”
ENSLAVED frontman Grutle Kjellson also commented:
“Dear fans, first of all, thanks for the absolutely overwhelming response and excitement in connection with our latest escapades! Through hard work and cunning planning (yes, we do make cunning plans in Norway too), we have been able to set up no less than three streaming events. They will be shows with full production, and they will all be free to watch! The first one of the events “Chronicles Of The Northbound” will take place July 30th in collaboration with the mighty Roadburn Festival! This set contains songs from all eras of our 29 year long career. Bonus: you can have as many beers as you want, act as insane as you want (headbanging, mosh pits etc.) without being kicked out of the concert hall. You might get into trouble with your landlord, but I’m sure they’ll understand in the end. So, stay home, stay healthy and keep the flame alive! See you all online at July 30th!”
