Slaraffenklang returns for 2 Danish concerts

December 8, 2009 by Rasmus

About a year ago we played a concert together with our good friends in Slaraffenland. We morphed our bands together, called it Slaraffenklang and played each other songs in new versions as a 12 piece rock band. You can still download a free live EP, recorded at that concert, over at

Now the mutant band returns! Slaraffenklang will come back to do two concerts and then it will go back to sleep in its monster hideout. Here are the dates:

23.01 – Aarhus, DK – Slaraffenklang Concert! @ Voxhalltickets
24.01 – Copenhagen, DK – Slaraffenklang Concert! @ Skuespilshusettickets

Performing Parades Tour – it ends in Lucerne tonight!

December 6, 2009 by Rasmus

it started 5,5 weeks ago in London with the Performing Parades concert with Britten Sinfonia and then we continued as a 7 piece and tonight we are playing concert number 30 of the tour and then it is over!

Tonight is also the last concert for Katrine who has substituted for Heather on this tour. We will get to play with her again sooner than later but we will miss her, she has been so nice to have with on tour!

Thanks to all that came out for the shows. We thoroughly enjoyed playing for you and we are bringing so many nice memories with us home (and cheese – just bought some more nice cheese in Switzerland today!).

Very soon we can start letting you know about our whereabouts for 2010. The new record is out February 22nd so we will be “out” shortly after.

Magic Chairs – our new album! – listen to new song!

November 19, 2009 by Rasmus

Today we can announce the release date, tracklist, artwork and title of our new album! We are also happy to tell you that you can download the opening song for free right now!

February 22nd 2010 we will release our third full length album and we are exited! We’re calling this new baby for Magic Chairs and we are curious to find out how you will like it as it definitely introduces a new Efterklang sound.

We have been working on the album since January 2009 and we have played and tested several of the new songs on the road throughout the year on our different tours. We recorded the album in Feedback Recording studio in Århus and in Black Tornado, STC Studio and our own studio (all three) in Copenhagen. The record is mixed by our new friend Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Nick Cave & Grizzly Bear) and I think we dare to say that we are very proud of it!

Magic Chairs is our first album on our new home 4AD. This fine and legendary label will release Magic Chairs across the globe except for Scandinavia where we will release the album on our own Rumraket label.

01: Modern Drift
02: Alike
03: I Was Playing Drums
04: Raincoats
05: Harmonics
06: Full Moon
07: The Soft Beating
08: Scandinavian Love
09: Mirror Mirror
10: Natural Tune

Magic Chairs is out February 22nd 2010 – we hope you will like it!

As usual Hvass&Hannibal have made the artwork for the new album and we totally love what they came up with!

Mads, Casper, Thomas and Rasmus
