Acclaimed Norwegian dark rockers DJERV have released a video for their new single ‘(We Don’t) Hang No More‘. The track follows the duo’s comeback single ‘Throne‘, which marked their first new music in almost a decade.
“It`s been really fun doing these tracks, just trying out something a bit different, something a bit more up-tempo and simpler. Not over-thinking it too much,” states drummer Erlend Gjerde.
Frontwoman Agnete Kjølsrud says of the single’s lyrical theme: “As much as it hurts, some relationships just have to end. When you find yourselves disappointed time and time again, when you expected more but finally realise that things won`t change… well, it hurts. But instead of breaking down you just have to deal with it and acknowledge the truth; We don’t hang no more.”
DJERV entered the international heavy music scene in 2011 with a debut record well ahead of its time. Engineered by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames) and mixed by Matt Hyde (Deftones, No Doubt) the self-titled album received critical acclaim from Sweden Rock Magazine, Metal Hammer UK, Terrorizer and Rock Tribune.
Charting at #8 in the official Norwegian charts, DJERV toured heavily, including with Ministry, and performed at Hellfest, Wacken, Eurosonic, and more.
Vocalist Agnete also contributed to Dimmu Borgir‘s most-streamed song ‘Gateways‘, and the League of Legends song ‘Get Jinxed‘, which now has well over 95,000,000 views on YouTube.
