APOP returns to Oslo in 2019 for the first time in over 10 years!

As part of the 2019 European Tour Dates, OSLO has now been added to the calendar, and the APOP-boys will be doing their first gig in their home capital in over 10 years!

The gig in Gothenburg on the 1st. December had a huge turn-up of Norwegian fans, many of them begging us to do a gig in Norway again.

We've heard you, so on Saturday the 24th. August 2019, Apoptygma Berzerk will be playing PARKTEATERET in Oslo, a venue known for it's great sound and stunning light-rig. In the past couple of years, Parkteateret have been hosting gigs by Sparks, Laibach and Gary Numan to name a few, so we'll be in good company.

As our special-guest, we bring over Vile Electrodes from the UK, the very same brilliant band that also will support us on some of our German dates in 2019. 

On top of this, our close friend, DJ Alex Tjore, will be playing the best electronic tunes for us from the golden era, 1977 - 1984, so bring your dancing shoes and fitting attire! He'll be digging into the pioneers of electronica, as well as the untarnished kings and queens of electropop! What's not to like? It will be a massive evening for sure!

Ticket sales will start via Ticketmaster at 3PM / 15:00 (local Norwegian time) on Monday the 10th. December, and to secure your ticket(s), follow this link: https://www.ticketmaster.no/event/593539

See you in Oslo!

New show in 2019 to be announced 10th. December 10:00!

A lot is happening in the APOP camp these days, and just as a heads-up, we will urge you to check back in here on the 10th. December at 10AM for the announcement of yet another show in 2019. The ticket sales for this show will start on 10th. December at 3PM!

The show will be held in a city where APOP haven't played in over 10 years, and it is in a country where we don't play very often.

It will be a small and intimate venue with great sound and lights, and for some of you, it will be a perfect opportunity to combine with a holiday!

Stay with us, and be the first to hear the news! :)

History

Biography

"It's Apoptygma Berzerk, Jim - but not as we know it." 

APOP reinvents itself - again - with an exciting new sound; different from, but complimentary to, the electro rock future pop stylings of previous releases.

On Exit Popularity Contest (a fix-up of the 12" EPs Stop Feeding The Beast, Videodrome and Xenogenesis), APOP founder Stephan Groth distils the essence of carefully selected pioneers to construct a classic yet refreshingly contemporary sound. Varied and vital, it brings instrumental music back into the spotlight, and after the wildly enthusiastic audience reaction to the sold-out performance in Norway last year, it appears he has tapped into a rich seam of electronic pleasure for a new generation as well as older aficionados.

Always a musical chameleon, Groth pays homage to his roots through emulating the analogue soundscapes of innovators like Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis and Klaus Schulze, and the driving motorik Krautrock rhythms of Neu!, Cluster and La Duesseldorf, all filtered through his own unique Scandinavian sensibility. In doing so he has created a vibrant, colourful 21st century palette on which to blend these classic influences from the Golden Age of electronic music. 

Exit Popularity Contest demonstrates an admirable musical purity and sincerity, channeling the best of the past to forge a path into the future.
