The band issued a statement in a press release discussing the new game. “[The game] takes fans and singer Ivar Nikolaisen on an epic quest through a retro-style maze where they are tasked with finding the other band members, as well as defeating the ghost of Tagholdt, who haunts a local museum and is a character from the song ‘Fanden ta dette hull!” They continued to say, “Your favorite superheroes are finally back — in a game where you can swing a REAL axe!” The game is available for Apple and Android devices.
Fellow band member Maciek Ofstad recently joined forces with Royal Thunder’s MIny Parsonz, Atom Willard of Against Me!, Red Fang’s Aaron Beam and Two Minutes to Late Night’s Gwarsenio Hall for a few covers, including Rolling Stones’ “Rocks Off” and Ozzy Osbourne’s “Over the Mountain.”
