Norway’s GREEN CARNATION will be making their North American debut as headliner at the Day Of The Equinox festival in Toronto, Canada this October in support of their recently released fourth album, The Quiet Offspring. The festival will also include Oregon’s moody/atmospheric act AGALLOCH and Montreal’s ambitious UNEXPECT. A co-headliner and other special guests will be announced in mid-May.
GREEN CARNATION founder/guitarist Tchort has this to say about the band’s debut North American appearance:
“GREEN CARNATION is overwhelmingly excited about this inter-continental show in Toronto and are preparing a unique live set for such a special occasion. We think it’s fair to say that those who attend will see GREEN CARNATION give its most progressive and atmospheric show EVER! Since it’s our first show over there,’ we find it to be vital that we cover the material from all our three latest albums. That means we have three hours of music to choose from. We don’t want to reveal the whole live show, but we can tease you a bit and say that we decided to do an extended live set to include a major part of Light of Day, Day of Darkness, as well as material from Blessing in Disguise and The Quiet Offspring. This will be a special event from us to you.”
