We are delighted to announce that we will be playing Folk Fest Zaragoza 2019 in Spain!! This will be the bands first time playing Spain, so we are very excited to be a part of it. Still a lot more shows and festivals to be announced as part of the new album’s UK/European tour, so keep checking the page 🙂
This April 5th, we will be hitting the UK mainland as part of our album tour! First stop is in Bristol with support from Call Of Fenrir, so make sure to get down and have a drink with us.More UK dates to follow…
New festival announcement!! We will be playing Dark Troll Festival 2019 in the historical Burg Bornstedt, Germany. This will be our first time playing at a castle and it also has it’s own Viking re-enactment camp, so this will be a special one! Saor are also on the bill, so this is definitely worth a trip over for anyone in the UK or Ireland.
HRH Vikings are raising their shield wall in Sheffield in a Valhalla celebration like no other. HRH Vikings will feature 5 mind blowing sub genres of metal namely, Battle, Nordic, Pagan, Black & Death. Expect the unexpected as we go all out to recreate a Metal Viking Saga to challenge the very foundations it will be staged upon.
HRH Vikings will be a 2 day, 2 Arena Adventure taking place @ 02 Academy Sheffield on 1st & 2nd December 2018. HRH Viking Hotels will be on the doorstep.
Last night was Michael’s last show with us and it was a very emotional day indeed. The crowd were unreal and started chanting his name when the news was broken, so a HUGE thank you for that, you made it the perfect send off.
We also played some new stuff which was received fantastically, so we’re excited to release the new album for the rest of you to hear. Also thank you to SKYCLAD and CRUACHAN for such great shows all round, especially to CruachanKeith for pulling the whole thing together for their 25th anniversary. You did your self and the band very proud.
Cruachan are celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2018 and want you to come along for an epic party with us. We will have former members back to play a few old classics with us (Karen Gilligan, Joe Farrel, John Fay, John Clohessy and more). We are planning a “special” version of our classic “Ride On” and other fun stuff. We are also honoured to have Skyclad over from the UK to join in the party, it’s been over 15 years since they’ve played Dublin. Completing the line up will be our good friends in Waylander. Together, on one stage, these 3 bands are THE FOUNDING FATHERS OF FOLK METAL! Over 18’s
We are delighted to announce that we will be headlining the Friday night at Celtic Transilvania in July 2019! It will be our first time in Romania and the festival looks very special and unique. Our friends Cruachan will be playing the Saturday, so there’ll be some serious drinking that weekend. Hope to see some of you there. -Waylander-
It is with a heavy heart that I must announce my departure from Waylander. Due to a new career path I am unable to continue to give 100% commitment to the band.
The last 23years have been a crazy old ride!! Lots of highs, & yes, a fair few lows but it’s always been a hell of a lot of craic!!
Check out the High Speed Hangerover Podcast below. We were featured on the show. Thanks for the support guys!
You’ve probably realised that we’re recording drums this weekend. Took a while last night to re-skin, tune and mic the kit, but recording starts today. So if anyone has any specific questions about recording or drum tech, ask below and we’ll try and answer it as best we can.
