MYRKUR: Announces Exclusive EU Shows; Premieres Second Bio Video via Kerrang

MYRKUR has announced two special one-off concerts this October. One is to take place in her native Denmark, while the other is to be held in London (the artist's first-ever UK show). Dates and venues are listed below. 

Kerrang! has also premiered the first and second of three biographical videos detailing MYRKUR's background, creative processes, and more! The first video, in which the artist discusses her musical background and connection with Scandinavian mythology, is available for streaming HERE. The second video goes into further depth about the themes behind MYRKUR's new full-length M, and is available for streaming HERE.

MYRKUR's live performances follow the release of her first full-length album M, released via Relapse Records in August 2015. Publications including NPR, Stereogum, Pitchfork, Spin and dozens of other outlets worldwide have hailed M and MYRKUR as a unique and timeless expression of black metal, and the album has catapulted MYRKURdirectly into the spotlight of the metal community at large. M is available for streaming and physical orders via Relapse at THIS LOCATION, and is available for streaming and digital orders via MYRKUR's Bandcamp page HERE.

MYRKUR Live Dates:

Oct 23 Copenhagen, DK Pumpehuset TICKETS
Oct 27 London, UK The Underworld TICKETS

From the darkness of Scandinavia emerges MYRKUR. Hailing from Denmark, the one-woman project signed to Relapse Records in 2014 off the strength of just one EP, its eponymous debut (released September 2014). Envisioned and realized by classically-trained multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Amalie Bruun, MYRKUR combined the rawness of second-wave black metal bands like Ulver and Darkthrone with a natural, ethereal sonic beauty. MYRKUR introduced a wholly unique perspective on the genre of black metal, one that immediately put her on the map and caught the attention of listeners and publications worldwide. MYRKUR's power was more than evident on her first EP, but fully came into its own on Bruun’s first full-length M, released via Relapse in August 2015. Now with two acclaimed releases and several live performances (including one at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival) under her belt, nobody but MYRKUR is in a better place to help Scandinavia reclaim its rightful throne as the global leader of extreme music.
