ENSLAVED are proud to announce a string of very special Norwegian tour dates, titled the ‘Big Band Tour 2021‘. Joining them this October will be fellow Bergner’s, the psychedelic rock band Shaman Elephant, who will perform twice each night! Each evening will launch with Shaman Elephant’s opening performance, followed by a unique headline event – Enslaved’s set will also feature Shaman Elephant, with a total of 9 musicians gracing the stage. Every show promises a rare setlist featuring songs that have never previously been performed live, and some new interpretations of fan-favourites.
Ivar Bjørnson commented,
“We are as always moving ahead, ever trying to expand the Enslaved universe – and to challenge ourselves as a unit and as individual musicians. Some of the most exciting and learning experience come from collaborations with other artists; within all sorts of artistic expressions – sonic, visual, philosophical and so on ad infinitum.
For the Enslaved Big Band Norwegian Tour (at least that is where we start) we have invited the brilliant young Bergen band Shaman Elephant to join us on stage. We will re-arrange a broad selection from our entire catalogue for a monstrous nine-headed, two-band sea monster to perform on stage. This will be one for the chronicles!!!”

There is a desert which is very old, very dry, and very dangerous. Few have ever dared to cross it, and fewer have returned. Some say that it is a desert between places, others say that it is a desert between worlds. Those who have crossed it and returned swear that the desert is another world in itself – an astral bridge, which swallows all but the most well-prepared travelers.
Travelling by sonic pathways, Enslaved‘s new ep Caravan To The Outer Worlds will set off October 1st, inviting the listener to explore the esoteric spaces which call out from just beyond the dunes.
Enslaved’s new 4-track EP Caravans To The Outer Worlds will be released on October 1st via Nuclear Blast. Pre-order physically + digitally here: https://bfan.link/caravans-to-the-outer-worlds.ema

Enslaved are seasoned voyagers. In their last venture, they descended into Utgard, deep in the dark beneath their native Norway. Now, they are preparing to set off again, not down this time, but out. They intend to cross the desert, into it and perhaps beyond it.
