RELEASE DATE October 23th

After a six-year-long hibernation, Djerv are fully recharged. The come-back single “Throne” was released just before the Summer, and now the second track “(We Don`t) Hang No More” is ready for the audience. Djerv continue in the sound of which they became known, and at the same time going towards a more defined rock-sound. “It`s been really fun doing these tracks, just trying out something a bit different, something a bit more up-tempo and simpler. Not over-thinking it too much.” Erlend (drums) states.
Following up on “Throne”, Djerv are launching yet another hard-rock banger! Musically, “(We Don’t) Hang No More” sees the band continue on their rock-focused path, while the lyrics are about ending relationships. Most of us have been there; be it your boyfriend, friend, colleague, or other relation. Certain people are just not worth the time and energy to hang out with anymore.
Djerv entered the international rock and metal-scene in 2011 with a debut record that still impresses in 2020. Engineered by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames) and mixed by Matt Hyde (Deftones, No Doubt) the album received critical acclaim with 9/10 in Sweden Rock Magazine, and Rock Tribune. The metal bible Metal Hammer UK gave it a solid 8/10 and said:
“Agnete Kjølsrud’s the star of the show, her vocals could take paint off your dad’s car!”
Terrorizer Magazine followed suit and said: “Djerv are onto something big with their clever combination of hard rock and black metal… A talented band that are only just getting started”
And they were right. After only two days in sale, the debut album crashed into the official Norwegian sales charts at an impressive #8. They were also the highest newcomer and #3 on Norwegian Artist Charts. Spearheaded by their singles “Headstone” and “Madman” their success was immediate. During the next years, the band toured heavily, amongst others with Ministry, and established themselves in the European rock and metal scene. Djerv also performed at festivals like Hellfest, Wacken, Eurosonic, Rock Hartz and Inferno to name a few. Despite the heavy touring the Djerv-universe spread outside the band itself as Agnete found time to contribute with clean-vocals on Dimmu Borgir`s most-streamed song on Spotify, «Gateways», and she did the track «Get Jinxed» for «League Of Legends», one of the biggest online games in the world. This track went on to be a viral hit currently having reached almost 95.000.000 plays on YouTube. After few appearances at summer festivals in 2019, Djerv are now ready to hit hard the European stages in 2020!
