Karnivool:  announce European tour; band's first shows since 2015

KARNIVOOL are set to return to Europe and the UK in 2021.

The band will embark on a full European and UK tour in September and October 2021. The Regeneration Tour will cross Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Czech Republic, France, Netherlands and the UK.

KARNIVOOL, one of the most original forces in modern progressive music, are renowned for their breath-taking live shows, and will bring their full Australian set to Europe for what will be a streak of more unforgettable performances.

The band were originally set to complete this tour in late 2020, but were forced to move their international plans, including touring, back one year.

Vocalist Ian Kenny says, “Third time is a charm, right? As Covid plays havoc with or plans to reach our fans, we can only try again – setting our sights back on Europe. Feels like the world needs to hear something good..Truly hope to see you all soon!

The tour is the first dates in Europe since 2015, when they were supporting the release of the bands last studio album “Asymmetry” (2013). The album’s vast soundscapes, complex rhythms and emotive melodies was the latest chapter in the development of this extraordinary band. Produced Nick DiDia (Rage Against The Machine, Mastodon) at Byron Bay’s Studios 301, ‘Asymmetry’ became the bands first #1 album, outselling all other artists combined in the Australian top ten and saw them pick up their first ever ARIA award and it went on to be one of the most acclaimed albums of 2013, achieving gold status in a just ten days.

2014 and 2015 saw playing to their ever expanding global fanbase with shows from Melbourne to Moscow, Sofia to Sydney, Pune to Perth; highlights including a sold out headline show at the 3000 capacity Roundhouse in London, selling 12,000 tickets across 2 shows in India, their first ever gigs in South Africa and becoming festival favourites across the world with show stealing performances at the likes of Sonisphere in France (80,000 people), Download in the UK (130,000 people), Greenfield in Switzerland (45,000 people) and the Hurricane and Southside Festivals in Germany (60,000 people at each festival). 

The band recently released their first three albums – "Asymmetry", "Sound Awake" (2009) and "Themata" (2005) – on vinyl for the first time ever.
