Be still your beating heart: Extol will perform live in 2014 for the first time in over seven years. The band was recently quoted with the following:

It is now 20 years since Extol played the very first concert – in Sandvika, Norway May 17, 1994 to be precise. We want to celebrate this anniversary with some very few exclusive live shows later on this year!

The last concert Extol did was in Allingsås, Sweden November 26, 2006, so it’s been a while. We are really looking forward to getting on a stage again, playing both new and old songs, and, of course, meeting our fans and friends! Waiting more than seven years is just way too long!

No dates have been announced yet, but keep your calendar clear.
