Myrkur is releasing her new album Mareridt on September 15 via Relapse and she just put out a second single from it. Lead single "Måneblôt" mixed elements of traditional black metal, dream pop, and Scandinavian folk music without ever sounding awkward at all. New single "Ulvinde" is something different entirely. The main hook is a thick, atmospheric, harmony-fueled wall of sound that really doesn't fit into any classifiable rock subgenre. Then there's a middle section with some of the harshest screams Myrkur has ever put on record. Both songs are really great and have Mareridt looking like it may be the most unique thing Myrkur has done yet. Listen and check out the tracklist below. Two songs feature Chelsea Wolfe (who has her own new album coming the week after Myrkur's).

Myrkur has also added an additional Brooklyn show to her tour. Before playing Saint Vitus on August 17 (tickets), she'll play Rough Trade on August 14 (tickets on sale soon). Her only other North American show is Psycho Las Vegas. After that, she tours Europe with Solstafir. Updated dates are listed below.
