Djerv is also releasing a new single and video for the track “Headstone” in support of the tour. The video shows a new side of the band where they bring the element of humor to the surface. The video is an impressive partly animated, and partly green-screen production by long time collaborator Jørn Veberg, and co-director Colin McMahon. The video boasts of references and nods to both pop and rock legends, horror-movie poster-esthetics and old zombie movies.
Djerv released their debut during the summer of 2011 and after only two days of sales it entered the official Norwegian sales charts at an impressive # 8. The album was also the highest newcomer that week and they charted at #3 on Norwegian Artist Chart.
Djerv's music is aggressive rock, borderline metal and dangerously catchy. The Black Metal references are there, but first and foremost this is a modern Rock Album! The album received unanimous critical acclaim, and so did the bands live performances.
“… when a band can unleash the kind of turbo-charged thrust that would peel a layer off Kvelertak fans, and when it`s embodied by both a voice and physical presence as unique and fearless as Agnete`s, you`reblasted into the realms of revelation from the off.” Jonathan Selzer, Metalhammer UK (London2011)
