Masterful Norwegian storytellers Wardruna sign to Sony Music/Columbia Records for the world (partnering with Music for Nations for the UK), and announce European tour dates for 2020.
Wardruna has been a DIY to-the-bone kind of project since the very beginning. Slowly and patiently evolving. Working hard and always keeping the art itself as the primary decisive factor. This will never change for me, and so having people on our team that also embrace this way of working is paramount. Partnering up with Sony Music / Columbia Records is a new stepping stone for us and I am very confident that this new addition to the team will give us new opportunities to further develop our art and take it to the next level.Einar Selvik
2019 marks ten years since Wardruna’s first release. Sold-out shows at prestigious concert venues around the world including a performance in the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater in the United States, and followed by a sold-out European tour. The group's monolithic and cinematic “Runaljod” trilogy based on the Nordic runes has reached its conclusion, and was followed by a stripped-down, fully acoustic album exploring the ancient poetic traditions of the Skalds. In spring 2020, a new chapter for the band will start. New music is being worked on as well as further steps in the band's concert production.
