Vola’s Friend of a Phantom European Tour

Mirroring the mysterious allure surrounding their latest creative phase, Copenhagen-based quartet Vola  has announced the Friend of a Phantom Europe Tour 2024 – The tour will call through Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, UK, Luxembourg and The Netherlands.

When in the UK they will perform live in London, Nottingham, Glasgow, Manchester and Bristol. You can find a full tour list featured here at RAMzine, and tickets are on sale now that you can get from here.

Known for an innovative approach to progressive metal, Vola’s known for an intense rhythmic complexity and poignant lyrical narratives, delivering music that is as intellectually stimulating as it is emotionally resonant.

Vola recently played shows in Chile and Mexico, along with completing a tour of the US, late 2023 with sold out dates along the way, before heading out on European festival dates and the forthcoming Friend Of A Phantom Europe Tour 2024.
Talking about the new tour, drummer Adam Janzi said, “We have been away from you for some time. But touring in Europe feels like returning home, and we are proud to say that we are finally here with a new European tour after two years. Join us as we open the door to something new.”

Over the years, Vola‘s discography has showcased their bold fusion of styles. Their debut, Inmazes, introduced a sound characterised by ambient textures and heavy riffs, that evolved into more intricate musical landscapes in subsequent releases like Applause Of A Distant Crowd. These albums have earned critical acclaim and bolstered their reputation in the metal scene, attracting a dedicated following with their unique blend of electronic elements and profound musical narratives. The 2020 release, Witness, further deepened their exploration of dark themes and complex rhythms, solidifying their position as genre pioneers.
As 2023 dawned, Vola – featuring Asger Mygind (Vocals/guitar), Martin Werner (Keyboards), Nicolai Mogensen (Bass) and aforementioned drummer Aam Janzi – signalled the beginning of a new chapter in their musical journey with the release of their ‘Paper Wolf’ single, an ongoing exploration delving into the spectral presences of belief and conviction that shape personal and collective existence. The Friend Of A Phantom tour marks a pivotal point in their career, embodying this artistic evolution and the deep, introspective journey they invite their listeners to embark upon.
