RAGNAROK - Renew A Deal With Agonia Records, Announces Eupean Tour Dates

Norwegian black metallers Ragnarok renewed a long standing relationship with Agonia Records. The deal is for next three albums, continuing the relationship that has so far seen the release of the Norwegian black metal veterans' seventh and eighth full-length albums, Malediction in 2012 and Psychopathology in 2016 respectively, as well as the special edition retrospective Chaos And Insanity Between 1994-2004, which traces the first decade of the band's history.
Founder and iconic drummer Jontho, had this to say about the decision to stick with the label: "We looked at several other offers when our contract with Agonia expired, but one of the most important things for us was the kind of relationship we could have with a label. We know that with Agonia we can have open and honest discussions and exchanges of ideas, which always result in something productive for both parties. It's not just about releases for them, it's also about all the other things that go into making a band successful."
Agonia Records commented: "Ragnarok is in a class of its own for delivering more than two decades of truly intensive music. And that's a heck of a time. One could say a band is burnt out after so many years of artistic expression, but this isn't the case with Ragnarok. If anything's burning, it's their enthusiasm, that's being well channelized with experience. We are happy to re-new the deal and we are thrilled and looking forward to working on the upcoming releases!"
The band also announced an European tour named 'Psychopathology Tour Europe 2016' after having appeared at various festivals over the summer, Ragnarok is set to play at Mörkaste Småland in Sweden, before hitting the road headlining a series of dates in Europe in the autumn. Check the flyer for European Tour dates. Ragnarok will be joined on this tour by Slovenian black metallers Cvinger, Norwegian death/thrash metal combo Mecalimb and other guests which are yet to be revealed. Link
