Asian Tour Clarification

For the past months there have been negotiations going on for a Gorgoroth tour of Asia in February 2013. This 8 concert tour, which would have had support by Belphegor and NervoChaos, will unfortunately not take place after all. We will not, under any circumstances, work with the promoter Shah Rizal (Vokill Records, Malaysia). We are on the lookout for new cooperation partners in Asia and also Oceania.

Infernus Fires Pest

Out of respect for and loyalty to Gorgoroth's audience and collaborators, Infernus has kicked Pest out of the band, effective immediately. This after Pest informed the band that he would not be prioritizing doing the upcoming Latin American tour after all, just two weeks before the band was set to depart for Brazil. Infernus has decided that the tour will go on as planned, though, and Hoest of Taake will replace Pest as vocalist on the tour starting on September 7, 2012. As for the next Gorgoroth studio album "Instinctus Bestialis", vocal duties will be handled by a Serbian Satanist known as Atterigner, of the band Triumfall (Forces of Satan Records).

No Gorgoroth European Tour in May 2012

As many of you may have noticed, there has been no official statement from Gorgoroth confirming a European tour in May 2012, despite the fact that there have been several listings for such a tour on various non-band related websites, and there have even been tickets available for some of the supposed shows.

Since January 2012 we have intended to go on a 21-24 concert May tour of the UK, Germany, Slovenia, Poland, Hungary, Austria, etc. And we have gone through a long process where ASP Concerts & Tourbooking (represented by Marcus Schreiber) were supposed to book this tour. It has been a nightmare process from day one, as Marcus Schreiber has shown a massive amount of both ill will and lack of ability in regards to arranging this in a professional and believable fashion.

I have waited as long as I possibly could in the hopes that this project would be possible to go through with after all, but after today it was clear to me that we have no other choice but to make a statement where we confirm that there will be no European tour in May 2012. This is of course very regrettable for the band, for the local promoters who have got involved in this mess, and for all those who wanted to see us perform in May. For this I am sorry. It was a mistake ignoring other people's warnings about working with ASP and Marcus Schreiber. Both booking companies and other bands have warned us against this. We will never again work with him, and would not recommend anyone else to do so either.

To our audience: Do NOT buy tickets for any Gorgoroth concert in May 2012. These concerts will not take place. If you have already done so, you should check with the local promoter or ticket vendor for a refund.

Infernus, 30.04.2012

Tour Recap and News

Gorgoroth's 38 show European tour of November and December 2011 was a great success for the band, and we wish to thank the audience and also the local promoters for the warm welcome we received. Check out the tour report from Sheol Magazine here. A 6-page tour report can also be found in the February 2012 issue of the Norwegian magazine Alfa. We are currently looking into the possibility of doing another European tour as early as May 2012. More information on this when things are confirmed. Gorgoroth will also be featured in Norwegian metal magazine Helvete Magazine's January-March 2012 issue.

After a press conference in São Paulo last week, we are now pleased to announce that Gorgoroth will also return to Brazil in September 2012. A total of five concerts are planned:

06.09.12 - TBA
07.09.12 - Belo Horizonte
08.09.12 - São Paulo
09.09.12 - TBA
10.09.12 - Porto Alegre

Hopefully this tour will also include other Latin American countries. More information will be announced at a later stage.
