Due to their rare appearances on our shores, devoted fans of Nordic alt-tock outfit Major Parkinson are so engrossed by the group that they frequently travel to Norway to see the band perform. Slowly evolving since their debut eponymous LP back in 2008, the band have developed a macabre vision of a musical world, blending cinematic pop, heavy industry, post and progressive rock with East European folk, nursery rhyme theatrics, explosive synth lines and anthemic choral sections. Oh, and they’ve reputedly used a decommissioned jet fighter engine in their music too. A new tour will see the 7-piece band drop into Soup Kitchen this year, with tickets on sale now.
Last year saw the release of their fourth album ‘Blackbox‘, finding approval of fans and critics alike and making its way onto many ‘Best of 2017’ lists in the process. With a four-date stint in the UK booked in, tickets for their debut London show almost sold out within a week of going on sale. Don’t miss the thundering 7-piece in the flesh at Soup Kitchen.
Major Parkinson perform at Soup Kitchen on Saturday 29th September 2018. Tickets are available here.
