Iconic folk metal outfit TROLLFEST are back! After releasing their Napalm Records debut EP, Happy Heroes, the kings of Norwegian Balkan metal return with their new single, “Dance Like a Pink Flamingo(Radio Edit)”, delivering an electrifying new track full of K.A.O.S. and over-the-top TROLLFEST madness – in full “pink flamingo” mode! The single will also be their entry for the Melodi Grand Prix, where the winner gets the chance to compete for Norway in the legendary Eurovison Song Contest.
Following millions of cross-platform streams and performances at the likes of Wacken Open Air, 70,000 Tons Of Metal and Summer Breeze, TROLLFEST return with what might just be their zaniest hit yet! On “Dance Like a Pink Flamingo (Radio Edit)”, TROLLFEST jovially invites fans to shake their tail-feathers like there’s no tomorrow, quickly careening into a slamming, energetic jaunt rife with folk instrumentation, pummeling drums and gritty screams aplenty!
TROLLFEST on “Dance Like a Pink Flamingo”:
“Greetings to all!!! It is finally time to share the big news we have been hinting at. First, foremost and immediately noteworthy, our new single is out, it is called “Dance like a Pink Flamingo” and you should check it out a couple of times each day until the end of time in our opinion.
Secondly (although this does entail a few firsts for us) we are going to be on TV! Mainly in Norway but it is on the state channel none the less because we are participating in this year’s Melody Grand Prix!! Needless to say we are extremly honored, pleased and excited! We also want to be winners so if you could all vote for us three times each (that is the allowed number) we would be super duper happy! This will be broadcast live on NRK TV on Saturday January 15.
Thirdly, but perhaps most importantly, our new single is from our new album, it is completely finished and more information on that will follow… For now, we would love it if you all help us make everybody dance like a pink flamingo!
And vote to make us winners. We really want to win music!!!”
