Týr announce “Valkyrja”, launch single

Tyr-Valkyrja

Týr- Valkyrja

Valkyrja, the 7th full-length album from the Faroe Islands natives Týr, will be released on September 16th in the UK. Týr once again collaborated with Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark. Along with Hansen, the band recruited acclaimed drummer George Kollias to act as studio drummer and Leaves’ Eyes vocalist Liv Kristine joined vocalist/guitarist Heri Joensen for a vocal duet on “The Lay of Our Love.”

The opening track to the album, “Blood of Heroes,” is streaming now at metalblade.com/tyr, where Valkyrja is also available for pre-order. Limited edition pre-order bundles are available that include Týr rune pendants, t-shirt, vinyl LP, and the CD.

About Valkyjra:
Valkyrja is a concept album with a story line based loosely around an anonymous Viking age warrior who leaves his woman and goes off to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Fólkvangr, the home of Freyja—the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women. Front man and founder Heri Joensen goes on to explain; “the woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of Women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women.”

Týr will be on tour September – October with Finntroll in Europe. UK dates are:

Sept 30 Norwich, UK Waterfront
Oct 01 Glasgow, UK Classic Grand
Oct 02 Manchester, UK NQ Live
Oct 03 Dublin, IE The Pint
Oct 04 Bilston, UK Robin 2
Oct 05 London, UK The Garage
