Kvelertak: A Long Way From Norway

After the release of Meir this past March, high-energy Norwegian metallers Kvelertak are headed out with Cancer Bats and Black Tusk on their North American Tour. Following the self-titled debut album in 2010 that earned the band the title of iTunes’ 2011 “Metal Breakthrough Artist Of The Year,” Meir marks their sophomore album via Roadrunner. The six-piece thrive on the basis of metal while incorporating an upbeat pop sound. During their month-long tour, Kvelertak will headline The Studio At Webster Hall on May 17 and Philadelphia’s Underground Arts on May 18.
