Having already sold out London’s Omera, Highasakite announce their biggest shows across Europe, including a stop off at London’s Heaven and a staggering 7 date arena tour in home country Norway (including the iconic Spektrum arena in Oslo, capacity: 8000). This is the first glimpse of a new show since the 2017’s ‘Camp Echo’ tour which comprised main stage headlines at Norway’s five biggest festivals; Glastonbury, Latitude (UK), Hurricane (DE), Roskilde (DK) and Field Day (AUS); and sold out venues spanning the UK, US and Australia.
On the eve of new music being released, 2018 has already seen a significant return for Highasakite. Previous singles from the campaign have already seen an enormous success, ‘Elastic State Of Mind’ has sat for 3 weeks at the top of the Norwegian radio charts and ‘Out Of Order’ achieved Norwegian Top 40 Official Singles Chart (NO), Top 30 Spotify Chart (NO).
New music joins Highasakite’s breakthrough LP ‘Silent Treatment’ (2014) – which broke the record for longest consecutive run in Norwegian chart history with more than two years in the Top 40 – and #1 Charting successor ‘Camp Echo’ (2016). The band’s collective catalogue tallies more than 100 million streams, with Håvik’s alternative approach to pop writing earning multiple Norwegian Grammy Awards and widespread acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, NME, MOJO, The Guardian and Vogue.
