Vreid at the first BV-BBG CMJ in 2008 (more by Leia Jospe)
It has been almost three years now since Norway's Vreid played their third ever US show at the first BV-BBG CMJ event back in 2008 (with Trap Them, Rival Schools and Made Out of Babies) at the old Knitting Factory (Norway's Shining played the same room hours later).
Now Vreid is returning and embarking on a North American tour TONIGHT that will see them headline dates with Kampfar & Necronomicon including this Sunday (8/28) at Europa in Brooklyn. Tickets are still available for the show that will also feature an appearance from Grafvolluth. All dates are listed below.
Montreal Mirror recently caught up with Vreid and asked how the recent tragedies in their home country affected them. Bassist Hváll said:
It affected us deeply. Our drummer worked in the government office that was destroyed, but thankfully, he was on vacation and wasn't at work that day. He didn't lose any of his closest coworkers, but it hit him personally as he worked with people who lost friends. He could hear the bang of the explosion from his house when it happened--his whole department was shattered to pieces. It was one of the most brutal things we've ever seen in Norway. This was a complete madman hell-bent on destruction. We all have children and when tragedy like this happens you just think about protecting your child. The slaughtering at the youth camp was one of the most savage things I think we've seen in modern history. If this could happen in Norway, it's proof it could happen anywhere.All tour dates, and some recent video of the band at Wacken 2011 is below.
