MANIAC's SKITLIV Confirms Tour Dates With GALLHAMMER

SKITLIV, the band headed by former MAYHEM vocalist Maniac, has confirmed the dates for its upcoming tour with Japanese all-girl act GALLHAMMER. Originally slated to join GALLHAMMER for four shows, SKITLIV has been added to two more dates in Belgium and the Netherlands. This will be the first time that both bands tour in Europe, and it will give GALLHAMMER an opportunity to showcase its "The Dawn Of…" CD/DVD, which was recently released on Peaceville. It will also mark Maniac's first trek since his departure from MAYHEM in 2005.

Having taken time out to successfully resolve his past problems, Maniac is now back with his own band SKITLIV, a doom black metal project that is attracting considerable interest both from fans and the media. Canadian drummer Trish is currently in the process of adding drums to the band's first album "Glem Aldri Korset", which includes guest appearances by two of black metal's leading figures — GORGOROTH vocalist Gaahl and MAYHEM vocalist Atilla — as well as SHINING frontman and creator Niklas Kvarforth, who is SKITLIV's recording guitarist and is expected to occasionally play live with the band, depending on his commitments with SHINING.

SKITLIV/GALLHAMMER tour dates:

Sep. 30 - Club Maiden, Oslo, Norway
Oct. 01 - Spanien, Aarhus, Denmark
Oct. 02 - Loppen, Copenhagen, Denmark
Oct. 03 - K17, Berlin, Germany
Oct. 04 - Scheld'Apen, Antwerp, Belgium
Oct. 05 - Baroeg, Rotterdam, Netherlands

Raw, unmastered tracks — including "Amfetamin" with guest vocals by Atilla, and "Hollow Devotion" with spoken intro and outro by Gaahl — as well as a video for "Virescit Volnere Virtus" made by Maniac himself, can be found on SKITLIV's official MySpace page.
