The recently announced Mayhem and Mortiis EU/UK run of dates has now been officially postponed until 2021. Read the official statement from Mayhem and Mortiis below…

Mayhem released a statement via their social media regarding the scheduled shows for this November:

“It is unfortunate yet neither surprising nor avoidable that the European tour that was to take place this fall will have to be postponed. These are uncertain times to say the least, yet everyone is doing everything they can to get MAYHEM back on the road. The 2020 tour is hereby moved to February/March of 2021, and we sincerely hope that this will be sufficient. Time will tell!

We’re covering most of the same locations as on the 2020 tour, with a few additions. Previously purchased tickets will be valid, with perhaps some local deviation.

We thank you for your understanding and we all hope to see you on the road again as soon as the world permits!”

Joining them on tour is the undisputed inventor of dungeon synth, MORTIIS,  who recently unleashed his latest full-length album “Spirit Of Rebellion” – a re-interpreted expansion and continuation of the 1994 Era I classic ‘Ånden som Gjorde Opprør’ – at the beginning of the year via Omnipresence Productions / Dead Seed Productions.

In support of the album, MORTIIS was scheduled to hit the road this September and October with none other than black metal pioneers MAYHEM – however, due to the current world situation with Covid-19 the European tour was forced to be postponed to 2021.

The extensive EU tour aptly named “Northern Ritual” is now rescheduled for Spring 2021 and will span across 15 different countries including 6 UK / IRE dates at the end of March 2021.

Mortiis comments: “So this should be no surprise, my autumn tour of Europe with Mayhem has been postponed for March-April 2021, obviously thanks to Covid-19 and all the lockdowns and restrictions it has brought with it. In the meantime, stay safe and follow the rules of your health department and hopefully we can all get back on tour and meet next year!

We will update you with more information on this tour soon.
