Djerv Summer Tour

This July Djerv will play 5 shows across the UK on their 2012 Summer Tour as support for Ministry. Industrial legends Ministry earlier this year announced the “Defibrillatour” in support of their comeback album “Relapse”.

Djerv appeared on the radar early 2010. Spawned out of Trelldom, Animal Alpha and Stonegard they pull strings from their previous bands, but Djerv is something else. It sounds different. It`s aggressive rock, borderline metal and dangerously catchy. Yet wrapped in a blackmetal veil? Genres melt together as never before these days, and so seems to be the case with Djerv as well.
Their story is short but eventful. The first demos surfaced early 2010, and two weeks later they were booked for the most important festival in Norway, the Oya festival. They went on to tour Norway in June and played several of the bigger Norwegian festivals during the summer. In August 2010 they released the “Headstone EP which generated some good press for the band and several key magazines in Europe featured them as one of the bands to keep an eye out for in 2011. In addition Dimmu Borgir has helped promote Djerv when they invited Agnete to participate on their latest album, “Abrahadabra”. Amongst them the lead track of the album, “Gateways” where Agnete does a stunning performance both on the track and in the video. She also did a critically acclaimed performance on the last Solefald Album “Norrøn Livskunst”.

Djerv is also releasing a new single and video for the track “Headstone” in support of the tour. The video shows a new side of the band where they bring the element of humor to the surface. The video is an impressive partly animated, and partly green-screen production by long time collaborator Jørn Veberg, and co-director Colin McMahon. The video boasts of references and nods to both pop and rock legends, horror-movie poster-esthetics and old zombie movies. You can watch it on djerv`s YouTube channel www.youtube.com/djervmusic
