Heilung don’t play shows. They perform a ritual. Every performance begins Kai Uwe Faust leading Christopher Juul, Maria Franz and their ritual collective in an ancient prayer. Soon after, the audience is swept into rapture, swayed by incense and throat singing, primordial rhythms, subtle electronic textures, a mesmerizing light show, an army of warriors and bursts of fire; a ritual.
Heilung has now released a brand new footage from their performance at London’s Apollo Theatre. Watch the hypnotic video for the Nordic collective’s hit song ‘Anoana’ and get a sneak peak at their full live concert DVDs, which will come out next year.
“Every tour has a beginning and an end”, says Heilung. “We’ve captured both moments. After the long pause from the world’s stages we kicked off our Amplified History Tour with the first ritual at the sold out Red Rocks Amphitheater, Denver CO, in October 2021. In January 2023 and 45 rituals later, we performed at the Apollo in London. These two rituals are the continuation of our original first performance from 2017, named LIFA, and will be released separately as “LIFA Iotungard” and “LIFA Llyn Dain “. The two releases will witness not only how far we’ve grown since 2017, but also exactly how far the ritual has evolved during the 15 months of touring”.
Heilung are currently touring North America. They’ve already performed to sold-out crowds in Greensboro, Baltimore and Clearwater. The tour was scheduled to wrap up in Denver, but the band has now added another show. They’ll play the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, California, on December 11.
