Mortiis Books US With Mushroomhead, New Album Coming

Mortiis band 2015

Norwegian avant-garde industrial artist Mortiis will make his long-awaited return to US shores this fall, joining Mushroomhead on the “The Devils Be Damned Tour” this October. The shows will be the first for the artist known for his early association with Emperor, and his namesake band in almost a decade. This will lead up to a new Mortiis album, The Great Deceiver.

 

Mortiis himself commented on the tour and the forthcoming new album:

The idea of going back on the road fills me with a weird sense of excitement and dread…” “The Great Deceiver is not far away – at long last – and we´re getting back out there, brushing off the dust and rust, to get ready for that, and whatever lies beyond.”

“It´s been one hell of a steep climb to where we´re at right now… and knowing me, I´ll step right off of that ledge, and plunge head first into the abyss.”
