Solstafir announce 2017 European tour
Solstafir will play shows across Europe this summer in support of new album Berdreyminn
Solstafir have announced a 15-date European tour which will kick off this summer.
The band have lined up the shows in support of upcoming album Berdreyminn, which will be released on May 26 via Season Of Mist.
Guitarist and vocalist Addi Tryggvason says: “We are stoked to be back on the road and doing up close and personal club shows between festivals.
“Some small venues here that are expected to sell out fast so get your ticket right away.”
Last week, Solstafir launched a stream of their track Ísafold exclusively with Prog.
The band said: “Ísafold came very spontaneously to light. It felt like the spirit of Thin Lizzy paid us a visit that day. Adding a classic Phil Rudd beat to that seemed the only right thing to do.
“This is not the most typical Solstafir track but in some odd way it could be taken to represent this album.
"For such a short song, it offers many different sonic landscapes. And although we are not re-inventing the wheel and you will find many references to 'classics' as tributes, I find it quite different from anything that we have done before.
“That is the way, I like it and to me Ísafold is already an all-time favourite among all our tracks.”
Berdreyminn will be Solstafir’s first studio release since 2014’s Otta. Find the artwork and tracklist below, along with a full list of European tour dates.
