Kings of Convenience- KOC Mar 03, 2019
A lot of people are wondering about the new Kings of Convenience album. What has happened is this: the songs were written and even performed live but when we tried to record it during 2016/2017 for a mixture of reasons the results just weren’t good enough. And by that time I (erlend) didn’t have anymore energy to pour into it. I needed distance to be able to be objective about it again. So 2018 was a charging battery year, and now we are planning to try again. But you won’t hear anything more about it ( or from us) until it’s actually done. No false promises. Dreams burn but in ashes are gold.

Yesterday we played the last show of the Unrecorded Record Tour here in Gothenburg, Sweden. Kate & James came all the way from Sheffield to see us, and we ran into them randomly on the streets. Thanks to everyone who came to see us in Amsterdam, Cologne, Leipzig, Berlin, Aarhus and Copenhagen. Thanks for all the feedback. We will stay in Gothenburg for one more week trying to record some of the new songs....

THE UNRECORDED RECORD Dear fans, after 7 years we finally are in the process of making a new album. The raw material is ready, but in order to fully understand the potential of each song, an audience is needed. The Unrecorded Record is a rare chance to participate in our creative process. These shows will consist of ONLY NEW SONGS. There might be mistakes, there might be false starts. That is why we invite only those of you with open ears and open mind to purchase tickets to these shows. No recordings allowed, to not spoil the surprise. The venues are all on the smaller side, to guarantee an intimate event. In the city at the end of each tour, we will enter a studio, hoping to capture what has hopefully crystallised during the shows. Kings of Convenience The Unrecorded Record Tickets on sale Friday 29th July at 10am CEST Sun 18 Sep - Het Zonnehuis, Amsterdam, Netherlands - Tue 20 Sep - Kulturkirche, Cologne, Germany - Thu 22 Sep - Taubchenthal, Leipzig, Germany - Sat 24 Sep - Heimathafen, Berlin, Germany - Mon 17 Oct - Train, Aarhus, Denmark - Wed 19 Oct - Lille Vega, Copenhagen, Denmark - Fri 21 Oct - Pustervik, Gothenburg, Sweden -
