Vreid Gearing Up For North American Tour

In just a little over a week, Norwegian black ‘n’ roll legion Vreid will take the band's sonic mayhem to North America alongside headliners Melechesh.

Set to commence June 16th in Los Angeles, California, the roadside assault includes over two weeks of live devastation. Additional support will come from Lightning Swords Of Death and Reign Of Lies. Comments Vreid bassist Hváll of the upcoming journey:

"We are thrilled to return to the Wild West; it will be a blast! We have had some great shows over there before, and can’t wait to return. We have our best album freshly released, and are ready to unleash these new songs plus old warrior themes for you. Unfortunately our rock solid drummer Steingrim has to sit out this tour due to work-related issues. He will surely be missed, but we have been aware of this for a while and have the perfect replacement for him. Tomas Myklebust will join us for this tour. Myklebust is a maestro drummer who did the UK tour with us last year when we toured with Paradise Lost. He did a splendid job then, and has worked his ass off rehearsing the new material. Hope to see you on the road."

Vreid will be touring in support of the "Welcome Farewell" full-length (reviewed here), released in North American via Indie Recordings on March 5th, 2013. More...

Vreid Issues Tour Recap

Norwegian black metallers Vreid recently returned from their Black Path Of America Tour with Kampfar and Necronomicon. The near three-week trek was met with an array of obstacles and weather calamities but was nevertheless a success for the band.

Commented bassist Hváll on the journey: “Our North America headlining tour has come to an end and what a journey this was. We were met by tornados, hurricanes and earthquakes, but managed to pull it off anyway. Unfortunately our New York City show was canceled [due to Hurricane Irene], but New York will be a number one priority for our next North America tour.

"It was pure pleasure for us to see all the diehard fans coming to the shows. Your energy made these shows magical for us. Montreal, Hollywood, Edmonton, Winnipeg, San Francisco and Seattle were all shows that we will remember for a long time to come. Thanks to everyone that attended. Vreid will return.”

As previously announced, "Goddamnit," Vreid’s 2010 DVD, is now available officially for the first time in the U.S. and Canada via Indie’s recently launched North American webshop. The DVD features Vreid’s complete performance from the 2009 Inferno festival in Norway, filmed by seven cameras as well as behind-the-scenes footage, band interviews, studio diaries and previously unseen live footage.

Vreid Comments On "Black Path Of America" Tour

Norwegian black metallers Vreid kicked off the Black Path Of America Tour 2011 last week in Toronto and though their arrival was met with a series of weather calamities and one canceled show in NYC due to the prospective threat of Hurricane Irene, the band soldiers on.

Commented bassist Hváll: "Our North America tour has been filled with action so far. An earthquake upon arrival, tornadoes as we entered Toronto and then Irene came and shut down our New York show. Mother earth has unleashed her wrath upon us this time around. We are extremely disappointed that our New York show got canceled, but be sure that Vreid will return. We kicked ass in Toronto and had a great show; next up was Montreal which was massive. An absolutely fantastic show in all ways. The audience of Montreal has to be one of the most dedicated on this planet. Then we hit Kingston, New York. It was good to see people ignoring the rain and fear of Irene, to come to The Basement to rock like a hurricane. Now we are in Cleveland and ready to give a massive dose of Norwegian metal at Peabody's. We hope the upcoming shows will continue in the same good way as the first three. The audience in North America has once again shown their intense dedication, which makes these shows a blast for us. See you soon."

Kampfar Issues Tour Update

Kampfar has issued the following announcement about the band's upcoming European tour dates:

"European tour update: It is almost time for the European tour and befitting a year of change and turmoil we have to tell you that Jon will not be able to bring his bass bashing tricks to the stage with us. Family issues make it impossible for him to be part of the tour, and initially we were reluctant to perform without his presence, but we are lucky to have a solid replacement lined up. Endre Moe, known from Trail Of Tears, is an old friend and has been on the road with us many times before.

"The step up to bass duties is a natural one, and after a weekend of intense rehearsing we're happy to say that this solution will be a very good one. We'll see you, the Horde, on the road! This tour is for you!"

Kampfar has also been confirmed as the direct support band for Vreid's upcoming North American tour, slated to begin in late August and run through mid-September. This will be Kampfar's first time touring on North American soil, and the latest volley of dates supporting new album "Mare," released last month by Napalm Records. More...
