Kampfar Issues European And North American 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.

Kampfar vocalist Dolk had the following to say: “After a decade and a half, we will finally hit the States and Canada, and after several offers to go there have been turned down – Kampfar will finally join our ‘American Horde.’ It will be a meeting in honor and deep respect towards all those that have never lost their faith in us over there! It will be an inferno when we join forces in August and September!”
