Galar Working On New Album

Norway's Galar has issued the following announcement about working on an upcoming new album:

"Hi, folks!

"After our last update we've done our first foreign live shows. We had an amazing mini tour with the Batallion and Cor Scorpii, playing shows in Bitterfeld (de) and Plzen (CZ). It was great to travel a bit, and to perform for both old and new fans. If you want to check out a couple of live videos, click here and here.

"These days we're currently working on our new album which we hope to record this fall. The album will consist of six songs including one instrumental. We're very pleased with how the new material has developed, and believe it will be even better than 'Til alle heimsens endar.' I dear to say this one will be even more epic and massive than the last one, so stay put as we'll post more info on the new album in the coming months!

"If you'd like, join us on Facebook where you can visit our new webshop as well. There is still some clothing left (M, L and XL). The stock on 'Skogskvad' is running towards it's last copies, though.

"Until next time, cheers!"
