Norwegian black metal masters have postponed their Australian and Japanese tour dates until September citing personnel reasons.
Frontman Satyr says that due to personnel issues and logistics they have no choice but to delay the tour.
Satyr states “We had on and off-stage personnel dropping out on us at the last minute for this tour. We would have had to really compromise on the quality of our shows, which is something that we wouldn’t want to do when we go to Australia and Japan. It’s better for us to postpone and come back and do this properly. “
With the tour now in September, the revised dates are:
Tuesday, September 4: Capitol, Perth
Thursday, September 6: Max Watts, Melbourne
Friday, September 7: Metro Theatre, Sydney
Saturday. September 8: Transit Bar, Canberra
Sunday, September 9: The Triffid, Brisbane
ALL TICKETS FOR ALL APRIL SHOWS ARE VALID FOR THE SEPTEMBER DATES
Without any doubt, only one duo is able to evoke sinister settings like the world of bleak woods lurking behind Norwegian wafts of mist. And that duo is SATYRICON.
Formed in Oslo in 1991, the legendary SATYRICON made an immediate and enduring impact when they emerged from the flourishing Norwegian black metal scene. With their latest opus ‘Deep calleth upon Deep‘ released in September 2017 on Napalm Records, the masters Satyr and Frost properly dispense the darkest art of metal: The resulting album is erratic and destructive, in addition to being raw and pure. It plows. It’s progressive. It mounts an unapologetic sonic attack filled with black metal anthems.
Says Satyr “Back in the day, Australia was one of the first countries where people were showing a great deal of interest in what we were doing on the other side of earth, in Norway. With “Now, Diabolical” we finally got to experience Australia ourselves, and ever since it has been of our favourite places to come visit. Our fans there get what we do and they usually show up in great numbers. As for Japan, even now, the crowd in Tokyo and their warrior-like approach to watching us play, is something we use as a reference internally. Tokyo is one of the greatest places on earth for Satyricon to play while Osaka has been getting better and better every time. Going to Australia and Japan is bound to be some of the best stops on the World Tour.”
