Yes, na ruim 10 jaar is er eindelijk weer een nieuwe song van Kaizers Orchestra!
“Dine Gamle Dager Er Na” (”Your Good Old Days Are Now”)
Deze nieuwe song zal de ‘soundtrack’ zijn van het nieuwe Kaizers Orchestra 2.0 avontuur dat eind vorig jaar begon, met de comeback-aankondiging, de 54 uitverkochte shows dit najaar in Noorwegen (80.000 tickets / in 14 minuten) en de internationale ambities in 2024!
Daarnaast kondigde Kaizers Orchestra nieuwe shows aan in Noorwegen voor na de zomer. Eerst stonden er 24 shows gepland, elk 6 in 4 Noorse steden: Stavanger, Oslo, Trondheim en Bergen. De vraag was echter van dien aard, dat dit maar liefst 56 concerten werden; 80.000 tickets in totaal, uitverkocht in 14 minuten!
“The most anticipated comeback of a Norwegian rock band ever”
“Ten years after the final pounding of the infamous oil barrels, Kaizers Orchestra is back with yet another bang”
“Their biggest European tour ever coming up early 2024”
“Despite its lyrics only being sung in Norwegian, the band’s quirky, conceptually ambitious and triumphant music – a synthesis of Scandinavian and Eastern European folk influences turbo-charged by high-energy blues, indie and rock – is broadly resonant”
“Norwegian sextet Kaizer Orchestra’s infectious and theatrical alternative rock with cinematic songs bursting through different genres transcends language barriers”
“Ten years is a long time. A lot has happened. At the same time, it feels as if time has been standing still. It feels like yesterday we played together, when actually it really has been ten years”
“We are very much looking forward to playing live again. These songs have been in hibernation long enough. Now it’s time to bring them back to life, together with our audience. We have missed them”
“I live my life, create my art and perform from a true place. It’s like I am standing on an oil barrel shouting a message that maybe not every person understands, but they feel the energy”
“It’s touching to be back together. We started this band as six young boys who were as close as brothers, and now I feel I have my family back”
“It was an especially inspiring experience composing the first track from the Kaizers Orchestra in over 10 years! Many people have asked us if we have saved Kaizer ideas throughout the years for an eventual comeback. We had not! We look at the music we make as a present-day currency. It has to do with feelings, growth and energy. To be able to make the music feel good and relevant for Kaizers Orchestra in 2023, we believe in new, inspired ideas. Janove composed “Dine Gamle Dager Er Na” early January 2023, only a week prior to the first rehearsal”.
“We wanted to make something that could be described as a classic rock anthem with Kaizers´ unique instrumentation. An incredible fun experience! Here, you will have percussionistic, open drumming, walking-stand-up-bass, riff on one guitar, monumental power chords on the other and as well as recognizable tangent riffs. It opens with our signature beat and what we call the ‘Bowie riff’ on keys before the song explodes and becomes the recognizable Kaizers Orchestra rock we all know. The arrangement is inspired by the mentioned Bowie and Queen, but also new references to The Cure, The War On Drugs, Bon Iver and a solid dose of the 80´s in general. And super producer Jorgen Traen delivered a world class sound image again.”
