The Greenland Whalefishers started out in Bergen in Norway in 1994, long before the likes of The Dropkick Murphys or Flogging Molly had hit the dizzying heights they’ve reached now. Combining british punk with celtic folk influences, the band soon became one of the most interesting post-Pogues bands. More than two decades of touring all over the world, releasing seven full length albums, a DVD documentary movie, piles of singles and EP’s and an unaccountable number of split releases, contributions to movies like ‘The Boondock Saints’ , have place3d the celtic-folk-punkers The Greenland Whalefishers as one of the worlds most successful and popular celtic-rock bands.
The Greenland Whalefishers have toured in the USA, Japan, England, Germany, Italy, Scotland, Poland, Czech Republic, The Netherlands, Belguim etc., and will continue touring all over with more power and energy than ever on what may well be called their ‘Never Ending World Tour’!
It is all this hard work and all the experience touring that has made critics stand up and take notice of the bands albums and concerts.
