Deathcrush heading out on extensive UK tour

By Tomas Lauvland Pettersen Posted: 28. Apr, 2014

Late April sees Deathcrush heading out on an extensive, month-long UK tour.

The next month sees Deathcrush touring the UK playing 15 gigs across the country, starting with Wed 30th gig at London’s Tooting Tram & Social and ending on May 28th at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in the same city.

Starting 2013, the band is releasing a series of singles. It was kicked off with nothing less than a flexi disc double poster magazine, followed by ‘Skool’s In’, a 12” maxi single. Before this, without releasing as much as a single, the band toured extensively, including Roskilde (DK), Øya (NO), Way Out West (SE), Iceland Airwaves (ICE) and Eurosonic (NL), supporting bands as diverse as Battles, Melt-Banana and Vivian Girls and were invited on tour with both Sleigh Bells (US), Trentemøller (DK) and The Dillinger Escape Plan (US).

Late 2013/2014 has seen the band taking a pause from gigging to record their debut album. The first three releases are recorded by Jørgen Træen (Datarock, Annie) in Duper Studios. Currently, the band’s session with Billy Anderson (Swans, Melvins) are in the mixing hands of the band’s own Linn Nystadnes.

Sweat, battery acid energy and gritty guitars — The trio delivers energy as if all members just ate AA batteries and turn the whole crowd electric. Deathcrush is without a doubt a band you will hear more from in the future.

Deathcrush are one of the coolest bands I’ve ever seen… they have created riot music for the 21st century. (…) Watch out South By South West. You are Tokyo. Deathcrush are Godzilla. John Doran, The Quietus (UK)

Two outrageously sexy tigresses with guitars – the coolest band around at this point in time. Le Monde (FR)

Norwegian trio Deathcrush are the day’s greatest thrill, with front women Åse Røyset and Linn Nystadnes channelling Kim Gordon at her nastiest over drummer Andreas Larssen’s Helmet nodding ballast. NME (UK)
