Watch FM4 RADIO SESSION – Between The Walls, Black Summer & The Ghost LIVE

Back in September we had the pleasure of recording a FM4 Radio Session in Vienna at the beautiful Radiokulturhaus concert hall in Vienna. We played songs from our new album Piramida and were joined on stage by: Katinka Fogh Vindelev, Peter Broderick and Budgie (Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Creatures).

New Video! Apples + TV Appearance

October 5, 2012 by Rasmus

We Have A New Video!

A video for Apples has just premiered at Huffington Post. The video is created and directed by Hvass&Hannibal in collaboration with Oodls (who did the previous video for Hollow Mountain).

You can watch the video further below or at Huffington Post where you also can read my (Rasmus) story of the making of the video:

This weekend will be quite special as the Royal Crown Prince and Princess of Denmark have invited us to play live on Danish TV on Saturday (Oct 6th) at their annual cultural award show. We will perform The Ghost together with Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester. Tune in if you are able to. It starts at 21:00 Danish time. We open the whole thing.

After this TV performance our tour continues with concerts across Europe. New dates have been added to our Tour – have a look here:

Piramida is out now – you can buy it via iTunes or via our own Webshop (deluxe CD and Vinyl).

Stream Recording of Piramida Concert from The MET, NYC

October 4, 2012 by Rasmus

Efterklang Live @metmuseum with The Wordless Music Orchestra in NYC

September 22nd we celebrated the release of our new album Piramida in New York City. We played the album in full at a sold out concert at the Metropolitan Museum of Art together with The Wordless Music Orchestra and conductor Matthew Coorey. It was a very special night for us. Hard to describe why, it was just magic.

Q2/WQXR recorded most parts of the concert for broadcast and it is possible to stream this recording now at Q2/WQXR’s website and also via NPR’s Concert Series website. The recording turned out really nice Q2/WQXR sat up an amazing mobile studio with lots of nice analog gear and they were so incredible nice to work with.

Piramida is out now – you can buy it via iTunes or via our own Webshop (deluxe CD and Vinyl).
Listen to The Piramida Concert here Q2/WQXR’s

PIRAMIDA IS HERE +++ NYC Surprise Concerts and Party – Tonight & Tomorrow

September 23, 2012 by Rasmus

PIRAMIDA is released today in Europe, Asia, Oceania and tomorrow also in North America!

We hope you will be interested in listening to our album. There are many ways to do so. It is on iTunes and other digital sites, and also Spotify and other streaming sites. We highly recommend the vinyl version of Piramida. It comes in an amazing packaging design by Hvass&Hannibal. They also did the CD design, which is a book style deluxe cover with a thick booklet. You can purchase these in any decent record store and also via our own webshop.

We are all currently in New York and we are still beaming from Saturday’s sold out concert at The Metropolitan Museum of Art with The Wordless Music Orchestra. An unforgettable night. We recommend this photo report btw – really nice photos. There is also a very nice review in todays New York Times.
