Sólstafir have released a new video for the track “Dagmál”, which has been taken from the band’s latest full-length ‘Ótta‘. The enigmatic Icelandic rockers are also releasing statements about their re-signing to Season of Mist and the recording of their forthcoming new album.
You can view the video for “Dagmál” below.
Sólstafir comment on the video: “The album cycle of ‘Ótta’ is coming to a close with a third and final video for the song, ‘Dagmál’. The live footage for this clip was shot over the course of 18 months of heavy touring. The video features our newest band member, Hallgrímur ‘Grimsi’ Hallgrímsson, who started filling in behind the kit in April 2015.“
On further news, Season of Mist are proud to announce the re-signing of Sólstafir. The band states: “With our previous contract coming to an end, we have had plenty of great offers on the table for which we are grateful. Yet, why should we end a good thing? The entire team works brilliantly together and everyone involved decided that continuing is the logical step moving forward.“
Yesterday also marked the start of the third week of Sólstafir recording their new album. Vocalist and guitarist Aðalbjörn “Addi” Tryggvason comments on behalf of the band: “We are back here at Sundlaugin for the third time to record our seventh album. We feel right at home and after being locked up in songwriting mode for two months, it is a one of a kind feeling hearing the demos gaining life. We have fourteen songs recorded, including one cover version, but at the moment it is too early to tell what will end up on the album. The new album will definitely sound like Sólstafir and as always, there will be surprises too.“
‘Ótta‘ can still be ordered in various formats from the Season of Mist shop.
