Ok, so now we have been on the road, and it has been rewarding, all fear and loathing considered. We are a domestic pack these days. The children miss their parents and we miss them. So. We have decided to limit next year's touring to two shorter blocks, one before and one after summer, plus an odd festival here and there. We would also very much like to make a few apperances overseas.
2011 is the future, a Critical Geography, the new album of Ulver. The anthological presentation we've been hiding behind since Lillehammer is history after Warsaw.
We are stoked to say that our blood-brothers VIRUS have accepted the offer to play their debut concert with us at London-palace KOKO, as a kick-off spectacular. This is Virus' Lillehammer, and they are a bit apprehensive. We are certain though, that if you show them the same courtesy that you showed us, this will be one to remember. An announcement from the band:
"Apprehensive is not the word. Plain terrified, is more like it. We used to feel safe and sound inside our little bubble, being a non-live band, barely daring to release albums. We've gotten tons of propositions over the years, but when Ulver approached us it all seemed to fall right into place, to create the best possible condition for both us and our fans to finally do this thing. We couldn't think of a better way of taking that next step - bringing our mischief to the stage - than under the wings of our friends, who've been in the exact same spot we are now."
The KOKO gig will be a further reunion of the old-school rebels, in that our red-bearded buddy ZWEIZZ will be opening the ball. He will also be travelling with us to a quite a few of the other venues announced. See you in the wild.
Az ehhez kapcsolódó Hammerworld.hu-n megjelent hír pedig:
A progos, ambientes avantgarde vonalon mozgó, de black/folk metallal startolt norvég Ulver új albuma 2011. elején lát napvilágot Critical Geography címmel.
"Okés, szóval már turnéztunk is, és nagyon megérte, tekintettel minden reszketésre és félelemre. Mostanság inkább amolyan belföldi csomag vagyunk. A gyerekeknek hiányoznak a szüleik, és nekünk is hiányoznak ők. Így. Szóval a jövő évben két rövidebb adagban fogunk csak turnézni, egyszer még nyár előtt, aztán nyár után, plusz az esetleges fesztiválfellépések itt-ott. Nagyon szeretnénk néhány előadás erejéig átjutni a tengerentúlra is."
