After the release of their latest album 'Rockland' in March, Norwegian ladies Katzenjammer' will be making a couple of visits to the UK, which will include their biggest date on these shores so far at the The Shepherd's Bush Empire. Here's the full lowdown:

"KATZENJAMMER ANNOUNCE NEW AUTUMN UK TOUR DATES


Tickets on general sale Friday 15/05/2015 at 09:00

From Livenation

Edinburgh show on sale now


After a successful sold UK tour this May - including London’s Scala - alt-folk-country-rock mavericks Katzenjammer announce new UK tour dates in November alongside their largest UK headline show to date at Shepherds Bush Empire. Starting in Bristol on November 12th the tour will stop at Birmingham, Manchester, Cambridge and London before concluding in Edinburgh on November 19th.


One of the most accomplished, instinctive, charismatic and nonconformist bands around, Katzenjammer are all impressive singers and multi-instrumentalists, sharing lead vocals, instruments, song-writing duties and, as The Guardian observed at a recent London gig, an enormous sense of fun. Prior to the November tour Katzenjammer will bring their genre-mixing, full-on riotous show to Britain for summer festival dates:


Thursday 30 July Cambridge Folk Festival, Cherry Hinton, Cambridgeshire

Thursday 13 August Cropredy Festival, Cropredy, Oxfordshire

Sunday 23 August Beautiful Days, Escot Park, Devon

Thursday 12 November Bierkeller, Bristol

Friday 13 November Library, Birmingham

Sunday 15 November Academy 2, Manchester

Monday 16 November Junction, Cambridge

Tuesday 17 November O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, London

Thursday 19 November Queens Hall, Edinburgh


Nothing if not utterly distinctive, four smart and super-talented Norwegian musicians - Anne Marit Bergheim, Turid Jørgensen, Solveig Heilo and Marianne Sveen - met at music college in Oslo and have mastered a thrillingly diverse blend of country, folk, blues, pop and rock.


Katzenjammer released their third studio album ‘Rockland’ in March to great acclaim and, as well as notching up sales throughout Europe, received long-overdue nods of approval from the British press. Produced by Victor Van Vugt (Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Beth Orton) the album is a joyous and uplifting record, refreshingly lacking in pretention, nigh-impossible to define and, as Songlines wrote, “a peppy life-enhancing joy from start to finish”.
