Wardruna Postpone ‘Kvitravn’ Release Until January 2021, Fall N. American Tour Remains Scheduled

Due to the effect of the coronavirus pandemic forcing the closure of warehouses and production facilities, Nordic folk outfit Wardruna have made the decision to postpone the release of their fifth full length album, KVITRAVN–which translates to ‘White Raven’–from its originally scheduled release date of June 5, 2020 until January 22, 2021 via By Norse Music in the U.S. and Sony Music / Columbia Records (worldwide excl. U.S.). It will remain available for pre-order during this time (links below). Wardruna will proceed to keep plans for their anticipated return to North America this Fall on a solo run from September 24 to October 20, dates of which are listed below. The band will continue to reveal new music throughout the year.
“It is with heavy hearts and great disappointment that we announce that our upcoming album ‘Kvitravn’ will be moved to January 22, 2021,” says founder/composer Einar Selvik. “Closed-down production factories and heavily reduced logistic services due to the COVID-19 situation makes it impossible to go forth with the release as planned. Nobody knows how long this situation will last and therefore we feel it is best to set a realistic date with a higher certainty of us being able to execute the release in the manner needed. On a more positive note, we plan to release a good handful of songs in the time to come before the full album comes out, so stay tuned!”
Pre-order options for KVITRAVN are available via digital download at https://wardruna.lnk.to/Kvitravn_Album. The album is also available on CD and 180-gram 2LP gatefold vinyl (black or ltd. Edition white) at https://wardruna.aisamerch.com/.
