DATAROCK has played over 800 live shows in 35 countries, and this time they're bringing two other Norwegian bands with them for support on some of the concerts.
Baertur (NO) is associated DATAROCK member Ketil Mosnes’ new project. The DIY indiepop-casiocore-lofi-alliance has existed for no more than a year, but the project has allready released an acclaimed album on DATAROCK's Young Aspiring Professionals and performed live across Europe and the US. Baertur invites you to "the most thrilling and possibly confusing party you will ever attend on this side of the polar circle"!
Syntax TerrOrkester (NO) is one of Norway’s finest and most respected indie/artrock projects. They have released two critically acclaimed albums on DATAROCK's Young Aspiring Professionals, and they've done a series of intense liveshows across Europe. On this tour, Syntax will do a stripped down, electronic set.
