POSTED IN A Year With No Summer, Live | TAGS : , , , , , , , , ,

As the echoes of A YEAR WITH NO SUMMER start to recede, we would like to share with you one last memory of our foregone European tour. The Polyarnik was recorded live in Gdańsk last 9/11 before the watchful gaze of a mesmerized crowd, during our European tour with Intronaut and Shining.

Thank you so much for walking with us through this surly year. It has been a rough journey but also a wonderful and transformative experience, and now it’s time for us to move onto new territories. Again.

We couldn’t be happier to announce that we will be touring Europe this September in the unfathomable company of Norwegian blackjazz rebels Shining and LA post-prog masters Intronaut.

Our last European tour was so incredible that we can hardly wait to hit the road again… This new adventure will bring A YEAR WITH NO SUMMER to more than ten countries, through twenty epic shows that you will find very hard to forget.

We’re back from our amazing European tour with Sólstafir, Sahg and EATW; and the only thing that keeps the merciless post tour blues away is reading all these live reports… More than fifty journalist have wrote in nine different languages that you should have been there!

some EUROPEAN TOUR media quotes

“A solid and intriguing performance by a band I hope to see again in the not too distant future.”

“Eine spannende Gratwanderung zwischen dem, was stilistisch erlaubt und möglich ist!”

“Elképesztően kaotikus, egy vérbő hardcore zenekart megidéző vehemenciával előadott dalaikat nem nagyon lehetett elkülöníteni egymástól”

“Il est vraiment rare de voir de tels extrêmes pour un même groupe!”

“Po pierwszych dźwiękach zagranych przez Obsidian Kingdom wiedziałam, że nie będę żałowała przyjazdu do Poznania. Moc, energia, radość w sercu!”
