TÝR Gearing Up For North American Tour With Children Of Bodom

TÝR will be joining Children of Bodom on their Halo Of Blood Over North America tour in early 2014. The tour will embark on February 14th in Quebec City and wraps up on March 28th and 29th with back-to-back shows at Irving Plaza in New York City. Tickets are on sale NOW!

Vocalist/guitarist Heri Joensen shares his excitement for this tour: “Finally we get to announce this one. It’s been in the works for a long time and it’s probably the biggest tour we’ve ever been on. North America, we’re very excited to see you all again soon!”

TÝR‘s brand new album, Valkyrja, has debuted on charts worldwide! In the US, the album reached #15 on the Billboard Heatseeker’s Chart, #22 on Current Hard Music, #39 on Overall Hard Music, and #70 on the Independent albums chart! On iTunes on day of release, Valkyrja reached #4 on the metal chart. In Europe, the album entered at #45 on German Top 100 Album Charts, and #76 on Switzerland’s charts. And in Canada, the record reached #26 on the Metal chart. On iTunes Canada, the record peaked at #2 on the metal chart, #9 on the rock chart, and #73 on the top 200 albums chart!

Valkyrja is a concept album with a story line based loosely around a nameless Viking age warrior who leaves his woman and goes off to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Fólkvangr, the home of Freyja–the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women. Front man and founder Heri Joensen goes on to explain; “the woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of Women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women.”
