Performing Parades – update and all the nice details!

August 26, 2009 by Rasmus

Hello! as you might know we will release Performing Parades our new CD&DVD & LP/DVD (live album and concert film) on October 19th 2009. The release is a collaboration with The Danish National Chamber Orchestra and everything was recorded live in Copenhagen last year.

In Denmark the release will be available via our own record label Rumraket
- click here for more info

In rest of the world the release will be available via The Leaf Label
- click for more info

Pre-order here:

The release is a new and live interpretation of our Parades album from 2007. The CD & LP part of Performing Parades holds the live audio of Efterklang & The Danish National Chamber Orchestra playing the songs from Parades from start to finish in new arrangements. In many ways we actually think this version of Parades is stronger and better than the original Parades album.

The DVD part of this release holds a 55-minute concert film by Benjamin Hesselholdt entitled Performing Parades. The DVD also holds a 35-minute behind the scenes documentary entitled Recreating Parades by Ralf Christensen and Anders Bøtter. On top of all this you also get 6 music videos from the original Parades album and also an acoustic live performance of Mirador. We hope you will find all of this interesting!

We should also mention that we will be TOURING MOST OF THE FALL AS A 7-PIECE! click here for dates

Included in the tour is a PERFORMING PARADES CONCERT with BRITTEN SINFONIA in BARBICAN HALL, LONDON on October 28th – click here for tickets

AND FINALLY – This is how the front cover will look like! It is made by our favorite designers/artists Hvass&Hannibal

- Take care

The Mirador Video hits 1.000.000 views on Youtube!

June 28, 2009 by Barnabas

Wow, what a nice surprise! Today we realized that the music video for our song Mirador just hit the 1.000.000 views mark on Youtube, with no cheating involved:) That never happened for any other Efterklang video before, so this feels kind of special!

The video was made by our good friends Hvass & Hannibal & UFEX, who also did the cover art for our album Parades which Mirador belongs to. Thank you both so much!!!

If you haven’t watched it yet, you can do it right here

With love from a sunny Copenhagen

PS. Also, the two amazing kids Molly & Jojo from America did a wonderful remake of the video

Performing Parades in Barbican Hall, London!

June 11, 2009 by Rasmus

Very exciting news for us!!

To celebrate the release of our brand new live album and film Performing Parades, we have confirmed a concert on 28 October at the Barbican Hall in London in which we will perform our album Parades (2007) with The Britten Sinfonia. The orchestra previously teamed up with us at this year’s fuseleeds09 festival for a performance we will never forget. We look so much forward to play with Britten Sinfonia again!

The show coincides with the release of our Performing Parades CD/DVD and LP/DVD that feature our performance of Parades in Copenhagen last September, with The Danish National Chamber Orchestra. The 55-minute film is directed by Benjamin Hesselholdt, and is accompanied by an audio CD/LP of the full concert.

The DVD will be stuffed full of extras, including a behind the scenes documentary (made by Ralf Christensen and Anders Bötter) of the preparations for the event, and all the videos made for tracks from Parades.

Performing Parades will be released on October 19.
You can buy tickets for the performance in Barbican Hall right here –
The concert is promoted by our good friends from Arctic Circle

Efterklang & J Tillman (Fleet Foxes) on

May 30, 2009 by Rasmus

When we attendend the SXSW Festival in Austin back in March one of the shows we played was a lawn party hosted by Other Music and Dig For Fire. It was in a nice green garden behind the French Legation Museum and besides a very stressed performance due to technical issues it was such a nice day.

The nice people from Dig For Fire just emailed us to say that their videos from the party now are online at If you follow this link you can see one of the episodes featuring yours truly and J Tillman of Fleet Foxes.

Watch Efterklang and J Tillman on

this photo is from the garden party – most beautiful merch sale ever!
