Its true, 2020 promises to be the year that Iceland’s favourite gimp-masked System-smashing post-human aristocracy-chasers guillotine-builders—we could go on—Hatari, makes Europe their bitch.

And you know what they say, to smash capitalism, the more degenerate, soulful, delinquent, left-minded proto-cyborg, the better.

With all of that said, Grapevine has the pleasure to announce that Cyber—the absurd vampy dirty feminist not-scared-of-you rap group—will be joining Hatari in their “Europe Will Crumble Tour,” starting in January, 2020.

“We are so excited to help HATARI in their noble quest to destroy capitalism,” Cyber said to the Grapevine. “Unfortunately, though we were unable to get out of our day jobs at CYBER inc. for the tour so we will be feeling some taxes during the show as well as answering a few important calls. Luckily, multitasking is our forte”.

HATARI, meanwhile, offered up this statement:

Hyper-feminine snake-charmer ensemble and renowned Icelandic rap entrepreneurs CYBER are officially confirmed as the official support act for the long-awaited Europe Will Crumble Tour by award-winning Icelandic techno post-humans HATARI, an exclusive IMN source reveals. The tour will commence on January 26th with CYBER joining HATARI on stage in Oslo, Norway, following the release of their single ‘CAPRISUN’ on the 24th of January.

“This could be the biggest news of the year and it’s only January. Cyber definitely changed the rap scene in Iceland, if not the world, when they released their track Aspen Barbie back in 2016, one of my all-time favorites. Fusing post-ironic texture with their iconic aspen skiing office party aesthetic left its mark on the entire music scene,” says professor Claggan Ewan, Dean for Research of the department of Icelandic rap studies at the University of Iowa. “This is definitely a very exciting turn of events.”

CYBER started as an independent branch of the award-winning ultra-feminist rap collective Reykjavíkurdætur but soon evolved into its own corporate entity, a move that was cemented by the release of their 2018 album ‘BIZNESS.’

The Grapevine reached out to Dr. Claggan Ewan for more thoughts, but unfortunately, he was giving a lecture on the secret Libertarian messages found in Herra Hnetusmjör .
