Djerv are finally back releasing their first new music in almost a decade! Their new single “Throne” will be out on June 17th! The single is dangerously catchy and aggressive rock, with lyrics touching upon an important subject for the band: “Throne is about fighting yourselves, your mind, and reclaiming control of your life.”
Djerv entered the international rock and metal-scene in 2011 with a debut record that still impress 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!”
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 90.000.000 plays on YouTube. After few appearances at summer festivals in 2019, Djerv are now ready to hit hard the European stages in 2021!
