Kal-El Announce UK Tour Dates


It’s not the longest stretch of dates you’ll probably see posted this week, but considering all these shows are in the UK, you can only say Kal-El are making the trip count. This is also the second tour the Norwegian heavy rockers have undertaken to support their Spellmann Prize-nominated 2021 album, Dark Majesty (review here), out through Majestic Mountain Records, following behind a stint alongside Bogwife this past Spring that found them in various European locales following a slot at the Sonic Whip Festival in the Netherlands.

So far as I know, none of these dates are a fest, unless Buried in Smoke have an eight-band all-dayer bill locked in somewhere on this list and are keeping it a secret — which happens sometimes in various places around the world despite counterintuitivity to the idea of ‘promoting’ — but who ever needed an excuse for a UK tour? I’m not sure who will be joining the Stavenger riff-scavengers on the shows, but it’s not like England is lacking bands to round out the nine-show stint.

The point is Kal-El are heading out, and they’re doing right by themselves and by Dark Majesty by carrying the momentum from the album’s release — to say nothing of its reception, which was resounding even before the Spellmann nod — as far as they can and supporting it as much as they can. Insert something here about the-way-it’s-supposed-to-be-done or some such, but it’s reassuring to see them back up their social media presence with a will to hand-deliver their music to waiting ears. I’ve never seen them, but I get the sense that their shows are a thing to behold, and I certainly wouldn’t argue with finding out.
