“Kvelertak”, the new video from Norwegian rockers KVELERTAK, will make its online debut tomorrow morning (Friday, April 26). The clip, which was shot by noted Norwegian photographer and filmmaker Stian Andersen, follows the band on their recent European tour.
Says KVELERTAK: “Stian Andersen and Erik Treimann came along on for a couple of shows on our recent release tour of Europe. They were able to get some sick footage on those few days, and put together this movie by themselves, pretty awesome! The shows that are featured here are from London, Cologne, Paris and the epic final show in Oslo.” Andersen adds: “To direct my first music video with one of the best rock acts on the block is nothing less than a career high and a dream come true! For this video concept I travelled on tour with the band across Europe to capture the (true) essence of KVELERTAK.”
Several still photos from the “Kvelertak” video can be found at this location.
KVELERTAK‘s sophomore album, “Meir”, topped the official chart in Norway. The CD, which sold 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release, was issued on March 26 via Roadrunner Records. It was produced by CONVERGE‘s Kurt Ballou and features cover artwork by John Dyer Baizley.
“It is both catchy and heavy; we’re pushing our limits in both ends of that spectre. It’s very varied and there are a lot of surprises in store. I mean, it’s unlike anything I myself have heard before, so we even managed to surprise ourselves,” said Erlend Hjelvik.
KVELERTAK is Erlend Hjelvik (vocals), Vidar Landa (guitars), Bjarte Lund Rolland (guitars), Maciek Ofstad (guitars), Marvin Nygaard (bass) and Kjetil Gjermundrød (drums).
