Hi,I want to thank everybody who has come to our performances during the last 18 months. It has been a fantastic adventure for me and an interesting time experimenting with the show illusion. I also want to thank the people who have made it possible, my band and my crew who have been extremely thourough, hard working, amazingly comitted and most important; fun to hang out with. Also my management for bringing us out to see the world. I try not to mention any names but I have to say Andreas Nilsson, thankyou for sharing your ideas, patience, humour and your enthusiasm. I could never imagine all this could happen when I started this project a few years ago.Now it may sound like I'm dying or quitting but I'm not. I just don't want to tour anymore at the moment. I have built a new studio and have work to do. Olof and I have started playing together again and I will also write music for a theatre play, "The Hour Of The Wolf" by Ingmar Bergman, which will premiere next year at Dramaten (The Royal Dramatic Theatre) in Stockholm. And spend some time in the hammock too.So long for now!Karin
Zola Jesus will be supporting Fever Ray for next weeks London / Glasgow / Paris dates... Last chance for tickets here: http://bit.ly/cqke5p
Fever Ray have once again collaborated with Andreas Nilsson (director of the 'If I Had A Heart' video and 2009's spectacular live show) for the forthcoming live dates in Paris, Glasgow and London. The first clues to emerge from this are below, more to follow soon...
"Its been medieval times for a while now. Nasdaq have been suffering. The banks and the investors. Fever Ray have been suffering as well. Things have been shit. But Fever Ray rises on 9. Like Wall Street Zombies they are now back to juice out the last drips of humanity. Led by the taskmaster Karin, the warlords of monetary jungle are ready to give you a last piece of monotonic bourgeois joy before you and the world around you implode." Andreas Nilsson
Fever Ray recently unveiled a full studio recording of the Peter Gabriel track 'Mercy Street' which has been a feature of the recent, acclaimed live shows.
That track is now available to pre-order as a limited edition, numbered 7" vinyl, backed with Dry And Dusty, featuring cover art by Andreas and Mattias Nilsson from the Fever Ray and Rabid Records stores. Release day is 6th September.
