Welcome to kaizers.konzertjunkie.com! This fansite keeps you updated on all current information about the band Kaizers Orchestra. You can find the latest news, translated news bits and articles, tour dates, and tour reports. Plus all the background information a fan wants to know, of course... so enjoy!

At a glance: What is going on in the Kaizers universe right now?

Kaizers Orchestra are history. On September 14, 2013, they played their last concert. Currently there are no plans about if and when they will be back. The band members expect a break for "many years", and they don't know if and - if yes - how they will continue after that break.

Violeta trilogy: The trilogy "Violeta Violeta - a romantic tragedy by Kaizers Orchestra" was completed with the release of Vol. III. In December 2013, a vinyl box containing all three LPs, a single with two additional songs, and a photo book was released. Story and lyrics ...

"Siste Dans" DVD: On September 14, 2014, Kaizers Orchestra released a DVD and BluRay of the last Kaizers concert, which took place on September 14, 2013, in Stavanger. As a bonus, the DVD contains the TV Vest documentary series "Siste Dans". The DVD/BluRay is available through kaizers.no and Norwegian record shops.

Accidental Rock Star: On March 13, 2015, the documentary "Den tilfeldige rockestjerne" (The accidental rock star) premiered in Norwegian cinemas. You can watch the movie online on Vimeo or buy the DVD (here if you live abroad, here if you live in Norway). The film focusses on Helge "Omen" Kaizer - the rock star who never really wanted to become a rock star but ended up in the band by accident. Information | Website | Trailer
In just a bit over a month, we'll finally get to hear some new music by the hands of Mr. Ottesen again - and even though this here is a Kaizers fansite and Janove alone isn't Kaizers Orchestra, I assume that most of you guys won't mind getting a bit of information about Janove's solo album here as well, right? =;-)

So here are the current facts in a nutshell:
  • The album will be called "Artisten & Marlene". It will be released (in Norway) on February 10th.
  • It tells the love and live story of two dancers - I summarized some more details here a while ago. But to get the full story, we'll probably need to wait for the release of the album.
  • You can already preorder the album, for example at Platekompaniet or cdon.com. Both sell it as CD and LP.
  • The tracklist has been released as well:
    1. Marlene (Marlene)
    2. Verden Går Til Helvete (The world is going to hell in a handbasket)
    3. Spinner For Deg (Spinning for you)
    4. I Siget (On a roll)
    5. Perler & Svin (Pearls & swine)
    6. Aldri La De Tru De Er Bedre Enn Deg (Never let them think they are better than you)
    7. Et Hjerte Som Sloss (A heart that beat)
    8. Me Vokser Aldri Opp (We will never grow up)
    9. Mine Siste Berømte Ord (My last famous words)
    10. Om Me Går Ner (If we go down)
    11. Vår Uendelige Sang (Our neverending song)
    12. Regnbuen Treffer Oss Ikkje Lenger (The rainbow doesn't hit us anymore)
    13. I Natt Blir Du Fri (Tonight you'll be free)
    14. Trixing & Fixing (Trixing & Fixing)
    15. Det Ville Vært En Sensasjon (It would have been a sensation)
  • The first four singles have been released already; you can find the lyrics and translations of those songs here.
  • The playing time of the album is a full 71 minutes!
  • After the release of the album, Janove will go on tour - and in summer, he'll play at loads of Norwegian festivals. You can check out all the dates that have been announced so far here.
So it seems we have quite a bit to look forward to!
