Kvelertak have unleashed a brand-new single, Skonggangr.

The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album Endling, which is due out on September 8 via Rise/Petroleum.

Speaking about the single, they reveal that it was “the first song we wrote for Endling. It’s a song about Helmut Von Botnlaus, whose life history and written records have inspired many of the lyrics on the album.

“It all takes place in the heathlands and mountain area of the south-west coast of Norway, where Helmut was born. This is where he spent most of his secluded life, living off what the earth can provide him with while fighting anyone trying to destroy the surrounding nature. Wind turbine and real estate developers, look out!”

Of the album as a whole, guitarist Vidar Landa explains: “On Endling, we tell the stories of the extinct and dying men and women of Norway. Old and new myths, culture, and rituals come to life – the folklore that doesn’t fit a TV series concept. Vikings and trolls are for television. This is the real deal.”
