Ahead of their third studio album release next Spring, and all still in their teens, Norwegian noiseniks Honningbarna announce UK and Irish tour dates. After a packed summer of festival appearances, Honningbarna (that¡¯ll be The Honeychildren, translated) will travel to England and Ireland as part of their most extensive tour over here to date.
Following incendiary shows at Iceland Airwaves, by:Larm and Roskilde, and the picking up of a Spellemann Award (the Norwegian equivalent of a Grammy, no mean feat), Honningbarna are taking their energetic, uncompromising and driven live presence to the UK.
Pelle Gunnerfeldt (The Hives, Refused ++), producer for the upcoming album, says that "Honningbarna is a great - maybe the only rock n roll band in a dying genre. The blazing guitars, furious boy choir, it truly is bliss to take in. Loud."
With Clash calling them the "most exciting band in Norway", their tour looks to build on their short, but successful, run of UK dates back in April this year.
Honningbarna will be playing the following dates from November 5 to November 23. Dates and venues are as follows: Monday 5 Nov The Black Heart, London Tuesday 6 Nov The Old Blue Last, London Wednesday 7 Nov Bloc, Glasgow Thursday 8 Nov Electric Circus, Edinburgh Friday 9 Nov Mad Hatters, Inverness Saturday 10 Nov Newmarket Bar, Thurso Wednesday 14 Nov Whelan's, Dublin Thursday 15 Nov Roisin Dubh, Galway Friday 16 Nov Dolans, Limerick Saturday 17 Nov Pavillion, Cork Monday 19 Nov Sound Control, Manchester Wednesday 21 Nov The Boileroom, Guildford Thursday 22 Nov RC Basement, Nottingham Friday 23 Nov The Forum, Tunbridge Wells
