Enslaved have announced their Cinematic Summer Tour. Since the summer touring season is more or less cancelled, the group decided to take virtual streams to the next level by giving a cinematic touring experience. These Norwegian avant-garde metal masters have teamed up with three festivals to provide three different shows, which will be available on their YouTube channel. The cinematic trek will be free of charge. However, there will be a donation option, and exclusive merch will be available.
Guitarist Ivar Bjørnson comments:
“‘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!”
