Katzenjammer Announce New Autumn UK Tour Dates
After a successful sold UK tour this May – including London’s Scala – alt-folk-country-rock mavericks Katzenjammer announce new UK tour dates in November alongside their largest UK headline show to date at Shepherds Bush Empire. Starting in Bristol on November 12th the tour will stop at Birmingham, Manchester, Cambridge and London before concluding in Edinburgh on November 19th.
One of the most accomplished, instinctive, charismatic and nonconformist bands around, Katzenjammer are all impressive singers and multi-instrumentalists, sharing lead vocals, instruments, song-writing duties and, as The Guardian observed at a recent London gig, an enormous sense of fun. Prior to the November tour Katzenjammer will bring their genre-mixing, full-on riotous show to Britain for summer festival dates:
|Thursday 12 November||Bierkeller, Bristol|
|Friday 13 November||Library, Birmingham|
|Sunday 15 November||Academy 2, Manchester|
|Monday 16 November||Junction, Cambridge|
|Tuesday 17 November||O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, London|
|Thursday 19 November||Queens Hall, Edinburgh|
Nothing if not utterly distinctive, four smart and super-talented Norwegian musicians – Anne Marit Bergheim, Turid Jørgensen, Solveig Heilo and Marianne Sveen – met at music college in Oslo and have mastered a thrillingly diverse blend of country, folk, blues, pop and rock.
Katzenjammer released their third studio album ‘Rockland’ in March to great acclaim and, as well as notching up sales throughout Europe, received long-overdue nods of approval from the British press. Produced by Victor Van Vugt (Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Beth Orton) the album is a joyous and uplifting record, refreshingly lacking in pretention, nigh-impossible to define and, as Songlines wrote, “a peppy life-enhancing joy from start to finish”.
