ENSLAVED - reveal chart entries and tour! - 2017-10-25

2017-10-25 - ENSLAVED unleashed their new album »E« on October 13th via Nuclear Blast. The album debuted at #12 on the Norwegian charts as well as #6 US Billboard Heatseekers and landed at #80 in Germany. These are the chart positions that have already been revealed:

But ENSLAVED's journey with their new album »E« has only just begun. Since its launch in 2012, the annual Decibel Magazine Tour’s ambitious curation has unified artists from around the extreme universe who would otherwise never have the opportunity to tour North America together. The lineup for the 2018 Decibel Magazine Tour continues that proud tradition, as Norwegian progressive metal legends ENSLAVED join forces with Pacific Northwest black metal heroes WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, Danish post-black siren MYRKUR and doomed rock ‘n’ crushers KHEMMIS (with regional openers in select markets to be announced next year).

“I have always wanted ENSLAVED to be part of the Decibel Tour concept,” says guitarist and co-founder Ivar Bjørnson. “Not only is Decibel an institution, and defender of the last line of resistance for the printed metal mag in North America (for a band started in 1991, printed magazines are no small matter), but the Decibel Tour has also become an institution and an icon for metal that we admire here on the other side of the pond. So, to be asked to headline, and to perform with these other very fine artists, is a great honor and a great pleasure. Be there or be trapezoid!”

Of 2018’s four featured acts, three have released new LPs in late 2017 to coincide with the Decibel Tour: ENSLAVED, with their fourteenth full-length album, »E«; WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, with sixth record »Thrice Woven«; and MYRKUR, with sophomore release »Mareridt«. The former have already been honored with a pair of authoritative Hall of Fame features (on 1994’s landmark Frost and 2003 groundbreaker Below the Lights). ENSLAVED, MYRKUR and KHEMMIS have each recorded and released exclusive tracks via the Decibel Flexi Series, and the 2018 headliners will return with their second flexi contribution, which will appear in the annual Decibel Tour issue of the magazine that hits stands February 2018.
