||Folk group Týr, hailing all the way from the Faroe Islands, will begin recording their seventh full-length album and successor to The Lay Of Thrym (2011) after Paganfest America in May.
The upcoming album's title and artwork are yet to be announced and are to be considered works in progress, but vocalist/guitarist Heri Joensen has divulged that the album "is about women. Earthly women, valkyries and goddesses. It touches on subjects from Nordic mythology such as the quest for fame, death in battle and Valhalla."
Some of the song titles thus far include: "Mare Of My Night" and "Come My Valkyrie." Týr has also confirmed that the band will collaborate with producer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Aborted, Mercenary) for the fifth consecutive album. Hansen has produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered the band's previous four albums: The Lay Of Thrym, By The Light Of The Northern Star, Land, and Ragnarok.
The band returns to North America as part of Paganfest America 2013 with Ensiferum, Heidevolk, Trollfest and Helsótt and the tour will begin on Saturday, March 30th in Denver, CO, and wraps up on April 21st in New York, NY at the Gramercy Theater.
