Arabrot European Tour March/April 2016

201603-04TheGospelTourWEB

The seventh album by Norwegian rock pioneers Årabrot, scheduled for a February 26th 2016 release, could just as well never have happened.

Just before going on a three week UK tour, Årabrot main man Kjetil Nernes discovered an unsettling itch in his throat. After a quick visit to the doctor, Nernes completed the tour with an alarming secret: Malignant cancer.

The album you will soon have in front of you is a collection of the music and lyrics written while undergoing surgery, treatment and recovery. In Nernes’ own words:

“The theme of the Gospel is a vision of the lonely warrior on a summit looking out over a battle field, the smoke from the bomb craters, an all-encompassing silence. The war was against one self; against the ugliness, against the sickness. You sink to the bottom of the sea. All of a sudden you are back on the surface again, stupefied. And hungry! A wicked hunger for everything human life has to offer: Sex! War! Drugs! You breathe, but not like before. “The man who has been in hell, never forget”

Arabrot hit the road hard throughout 2016 starting with Europe in March & April!
