John Grant Guest On Efterklang Tour

Watch the video for 'Hollow Mountain' from the Danes' forthcoming album Piramida

Efterklang have announced that folk singer-songwriter John Grant will be the special guest on their tour in support of new album Piramida, out on September 24 via 4AD.

While Grant has been a little quiet since his revered 2010 LP Queen Of Denmark, we may hear some new material on the tour – have a look at the dates below:

OCTOBER

Tue 23 – The Sage, Gateshead

Wed 24 – Usher Hall, Edinburgh

Sat 27 – Warwick Arts Centre, Coventry

Sun 28 – Dome, Brighton

Mon 29 – Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Tue 30 – Barbican, London

Piramida was inspired by Efterklang members Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg’s trip to the titular abandoned mining settlement in Spitzbergen last summer, which they explored, making sound recordings that formed the basis of the album – watch the video to ‘Hollow Mountain’ from the LP, featuring photos from their trip, below:
