Welcome to kaizers.konzertjunkie.com! This fansite keeps you updated on all current information about the band Kaizers Orchestra.

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

New music on the way! =:-D No, unfortunately no new Kaizers music, but early next year our stereos will still be busy!

First up is Janove with a new solo album. He did not sit back and rest after "Artisten & Marlene" was released, but kept making new songs all year. Which means that his new album is pretty much in the box already, and it's scheduled to be released in January of 2018. And the first single is just around the corner! Currently, Janove is playing hangman with himself (okay, with the help of all his fans =;-) ) to reveal the title of the song. Follow him on Facebook to join the game! And if you don't want to wait so long, go see him on tour in October and November!

But Janove isn't the only one with new music coming up! Skambankt just finished mixing their new album "Horisonten brenner" ("The horizon is burning"), which is scheduled for release in late January/early February. And talking of Janove: Guess who produced this album? =;-) According to Janove, "Horisonten brenner" will be "loud, hard, and beautiful", or, as Terje puts it, the album will have both hard and softer songs, but all in typical Skambankt fashion - "those who've heard it say that this is the best record we have ever made". You can check out a short live clip of the title song here, and soon we'll get to hear the first single of the album! It is called "Fremmed i en fremmed verden" ("Stranger in a strange world"), and Skambankt filmed the video for the single last weekend. Also Skambankt will be out on tour again, but we'll have to wait until the album is out. The tour is planned for February and March, and of course we'll get to see them at festivals next summer!

Time flies, and it's September 14th again - now it's been four years since Kaizers retired. Which means that we have cried four of our seven buckets of tears already ...

For most of you it might sweeten the bitter pill a bit that Janove released his solo album and is touring in Norway, and Skambankt are getting ready to ramp it up again as well. But sure, other music is nice, but it's not Kaizers ...

Accordingly, there's not much going on here on the fansite - but at least, throughout the last year, you could read through Kaizers Orchestra's answers to their fans. Now we reached the end of that Q&A ... Will there be another way to go back in time and remember the past again this year? Well, for sure! I looked through my video library and dug out a few ancient treasures. Unfortunately, some of them are in horrible quality, and for some I don't have the slightest clue where they stem from, but I'll put them on YouTube in the upcoming months! Follow the playlist Og alt me har er minner ... - it's pretty much empty at the moment, but it will grow. (At least if YouTube is nice enough to not take down all the videos because of copyright infringement ... cross your fingers!) And if you find some videos that should be part of this playlist, let me know. And now enjoy!
