Svartsot’s online store shutting due to touring

From Friday 20th November 2015 until Monday 14th December 2015, Svartsot will be on tour with Arkona (RU) and Metsatöll (EE). We will therefore NOT be able to process orders in this period and will therefore be shutting the online store already from Wednesday 18th November 2015 and until we return. Sorry if this is an inconvenience. IF you REALLY need merch in this period, we advise that you turn up at one of the dates, buy us a beer, and we’ll try to help… ;)

Hapas endorsement partnership

Nothing is more important to a musician than their craft and, by extension, the tools of their trade. No partnership imaginable could therefore be more exciting than having a team of the finest luthiers create for you a beautiful new instrument to your own ideal specifications. Svartsot are therefore indescribably pleased to announce that we are entering an endorsement partnership with German luthiers, Hapas Guitars, who will soon begin the crafting of two guitars and a bass for the band.

We shall be posting pictures of the construction process from start to finish as the instruments take shape over the coming months.

This partnership is particularly apt, as looking at the guitars they make, it is hauntingly as though they had listened to our music and decided to base their entire catalogue on a visual representation everything our band stands for. They are also unique amongst guitar-builders in that Cris, Alm and James all agree how much we like them!

A massive thanks goes out to Robert, Andreas and everyone at Hapas for making this happen!


Endorsement from Fusion Bags

Svartsot are happy to announce an endorsement partnership with the very fine Fusion Bags. James has had one of the very first Urban Double Electric Bass bags couriered over to Denmark in time for our slot on the European leg of the Pagan Rebellion Tour with Arkona and Metsatöll. Huge thanks to Wendy and Fusion!


Svartsot to tour with Arkona and Metsatöll this autumn

Following the releases of both our latest album, Vældet, and our first official video, for the track Midsommer, earlier this year, we can now announce that we will be touring Europe with Arkona from Russia and Metsatöll from Estonia in November and December! The dates and venues can be seen in the tour-poster beneath this post. More dates are to be added soon.

We are really looking forward to revisiting some places we have already been to, and visiting other places we have not yet had the chance to visit.
