KÆLAN MIKLA: Icelandic trio to embark on first US tour; includes Pasadena Daydream Festival, Cold Waves Festival, Cloud Rat dates, and more; Revolver premieres live video

Iceland's Kælan Mikla embarks on its first-ever US tour, kicking off August 31st in Los Angeles at Pasadena Daydream Festival (with The Cure, Pixies, Deftones, and more).

Tearing across the country over the course of three weeks, the tour includes stops at Cold Waves Festival and Murder of Crows Festival, as well as dates with Artoffact Records labelmates Cloud Rat. The tour also sees the band play Mexico for the first time.

From Reykjavik, Kælan Mikla is a uniquely thrilling band on the rise, marrying raw punk aggression, thumping beats, and a dark, fairy-tale vision specific to its native Iceland. Third album Nótt eftir nótt was released in 2018 on Artoffact Records, to wide acclaim. Noisey stated: "'Nótt eftir nótt' blends the mystical and euphoric with cold, hard synth and icy darkwave vibes; it's a digital ice sculpture, wrought in slick 'Blade Runner' tones and breathy, eerie vocals." Revolver called it, "searing post-punk/darkwave... It's a must for fans of dark music."

Today, Revolver premieres a new music video for the song "Hvernig kemst ég upp?" from Nótt eftir nótt, consisting of footage shot live during the band's European tour this year:
