Extol have released a digital Deluxe Edition of their self titled 2013 album. The new edition contains the exclusive new track ‘Sting of Death’, as well as new digital booklet containing never-before-seen artwork.
In addition to the release of Extol Deluxe Edition and accompanying lyric video for ‘Sting of Death’, there has also been an update from Animidas Productions on the release of the Extol documentary film. The video can be seen in the youtube clip below.
We´ve had our hands extremely full with post production and we´re now very close to a finished film..! Thanks to many of you, this project has become a journey we dared not hope for 3 years ago.
We have just signed the first (of hopefully many) broadcasting deals for television and we have started submitting the film to film festivals all over the globe. We have some very exciting months ahead and we´ll keep you posted on updates regarding TV and festivals.
A DVD release is scheduled for the end of 2014. We would love to have released the DVD at an earlier stage, however, due to TV and film festival regulations, late 2014 is the earliest we can do it. BUT, we´ll make it worth the wait! The TV/festival version is 70 minutes long. The DVD version will be a much longer extended version! + the DVD will contain epic private bonus material from the band on a bonus disc!
Thank you so much for you patience and support, and while you wait for the DVD release, make sure to check in on this page often. We´ll keep you posted on where and when the film in screened.
Extol have also recently announced that they will be playing some live shows for the first time in seven years:
It is now 20 years since Extol played the very first concert – in Sandvika, Norway May 17th 1994 to be precise. We want to celebrate this anniversary with some very few exclusive live shows later on this year! The last concert Extol did was in 2006, so it´s been a while. We are really looking forward to getting on a stage again, playing both new and old songs, and of course meeting our fans and friends! Waiting more than 7 years is just way too long! The first shows are listed below.
In October of 2012, we had the opportunity to do an interview with Ole Børud, the mastermind behind reactivated Extol.
