JUNIUS And SOLSTAFIR To Team Up For Short Run Of North American Dates

Thursday, 27th March 2014

Post-rock quartet JUNIUS, who recently completed a brief headlining tour prior to a performance at South By Southwest, will continue to tour throughout the US later this spring alongside the Icelandic group SOLSTAFIR.

The band’s new EP Days Of The Fallen Sun — described as a prequel to their 2009 release The Martyrdom Of A Catastrophist, which explored the controversial theories of scholar Immanuel Velikovsky — commemorates their 10th anniversary.

JUNIUS has toured in recent years alongside such notable acts as KATATONIA, ALCEST, ENSLAVED, CASPIAN and LONG DISTANCE CALLING. SOLSTAFIR recently announced a run of European summer festival dates. Among their performances SOLSTAFIR will play Norway’s Karmøgeddon Festival, France’s Hellfest, Sweden Rock Festival, Germany’s Freak Valley Festival, and Belgium’s Grasspop Metal Meeting.
