ZMR 2022 -Zero shows

Dear everyone.

Heartbreaking to let you know:

So, the Corona decided to deliver one more blow, just as the world was opening up again.
Many of you will know that we were severely hit by covid-illness a few months back, so severe in fact that we had to push several gigs back home in Norway from December and far into 2022. We have been looking so much forward to getting back on stage again and had the first gigs lined up at the end of May. As it turns out, this is still too soon. After careful review and advice from health professionals, Zeromancer and Seigmen are forced to cancel all live-activities this year. We are all gutted and really hoped we would be out of the woods sooner. In the end, it's still an easy decision. Health must come first and the band must fire on all cylinders before hitting the road.
We don´t know when we will be back, but promise to inform you as soon as we have news. Until then, take care and be strong! ❤️

Regarding the Markthalle-show, you will get more info very soon.
This show looks like it’s not gonna be moved once again. More likely to get cancelled.


Midnight, dear Mancerheads! Release-night:-) Please listen in and download our new album "Orchestra of knives"! We are so damned proud of this. Our testimonial. Bless you all!

"Orchestra of knives" out on Friday Sept 24th!

Time to announce the release and pre-orders of the forthcoming Zeromancer album, "Orchestra of knives».

Coronatime - new date for Clone show!

Liebe Zeromancer Fans!

Leider müssen wir ein weiteres Mal die „20 Years Clone Your Lover“ Show verschieben.

Aufgrund der behördlichen Auflagen bis zum 31. Oktober 2020 keine regulären Shows stattfinden zu lassen und der Tatsache, dass wir es nicht riskieren wollen einen weiteren Termin in 2020 verschieben zu müssen, sehen wir keine andere Möglichkeit als die Show in 2021 zu verlegen.

Aller guten Dinge sind drei, so hoffen wir und starten einen neuen Versuch diese Show am 10. April 2021 in der Hamburger Markthalle zu veranstalten.

Alle Tickets behalten ihre GĂĽltigkeit.

Danke für euer Verständnis und bleibt gesund!

Dear Manceros!

Unfortunately, we are forced to move the „20 Years Clone Your Lover“ show once again.

Due to health regulations & restrictions by the authorities, no regular shows can take place in Germany until the end of October 2020. Since we don’t want to risk another postponing this year, we don’t see any other solution than moving the show to next year.

3rd time lucky we hope and start a new attempt to host this event on April 10th, 2021 at the Markthalle in Hamburg.

All tickets will remain valid.

Thank you very much for your understanding and stay safe!

Moving the Clone your lover show to October!

Dear Manceros!
Unfortunately I have to reach out to you guys personally today with bad news!
It’s with a very heavy heart Zeromancer has to cancel the „Clone Your Lover 20 Years“ show on March 14th in Hamburg, Germany.
We have to move the concert-date to October 23rd, 2020. The show will still be performed at the same venue, Markthalle Hamburg.
All tickets will remain valid, or can be returned to the point of sales if you can’t make it.
The reason why:
As many of you know I’ve had some medical issues for many years, but it never stopped me from performing. Playing live and sharing all those fantastic moments with you Manceros are like painkillers to me! I’ve always found the energy to tour no matter what.
After my recent surgery I need more time to recover. The doctors have told me I am not ready! They’ve forbidden me to play any shows during the first half of 2020.
I have no other choice than to take their advice real serious.
This means for the first time in my career, I need to postpone a show due to medical reasons.
It breaks my heart because I know many of you already booked flights and hotels to attend this special occasion.
I am deeply sorry, but I hope you all understand.
Once again, I am deeply sorry for this situation, but it is simply beyond my control. I hope we will still each other on the new date.
I will promise you we’ll perform a kick ass show in fashionable Zeromancer style!
Loyalty to the end!
All our love!
Alex & Zeromancer

"We see us!"

Sold out

All set for Neu-Ăślm and Deutzen this weekend. Last rehearsal tonight. Parkteatret in Oslo next Friday is announced sold out. Dan is checking out. Will be a passionate one. Might be a few tickets at the door. Let you know. See you all soon! Loyalty to the end!

Dan leaving - A black celebration at Parkteatret on Sept 14.

Hi everyone.
What follows is an official message from Dan Heide. Guitargenius of ZMR since 2003.

He will of course go out in fashion. ZMR is playing three shows in September, whereas Parkteatret in Oslo will be his final. We will do nothing but celebrate that. A very special night. A black celebration of course!

Dear all!
I am leaving the band. But I am not leaving the boys.
When I first started out in ZMR 15 years ago, it was a dream come true. I was 21 at the time and I felt ready to capture the world.
Why leave one of the best bands on the planet you might say? Well, I have asked myself that question over and over again.

In the last period of time I felt strongly the need to do a little change in life, in order to give myself som space. For myself, for my family and for my creativity. I will not stop with writing music and playing guitar. I just needed to do some priorities. And if you want something to sound as good as ZMR does at it’s best you gotta give 100%. And I can’t give that right now.

My decision is not due to any disagreement or anything like that. I love the boys, and the boys love me.
So, a big big thanks to all our faithful fans here and there!!! From time to time we see people travelling from different countries, and sometimes different parts of the world to witness our show. It really means a lot!

So again, to each and everyone of you: Thank you so much!!!

ZMR is a big a part of me, and I think it will stay that way.

-The Times they Are a-Changing-

Total-off the hook!

Total was off the hook. What a great way to say goodbye. Thank you everyone for making this so special. And so warm. Lorry's brother surprised everyone by proposing from stage. Crazy. Big bro in tears. Invited Per Olav from Untime on stage for Photographic encore. All hands in the air. Insane. Best funeral ever!

Alt-Fest cancelled

So sorry about this. This immense alternative festival in Kettering, UK has been cancelled just two weeks prior to the event. We know for a fact that even Norwegian fans have bought tickets for this. It breaks our heart. It's a real tragedy. Read more about why from the promoters on the Alt-Fest offical site.


AMPHI...what a delightful success. Such a blast seeing so many people coming up every time we do a festival show in Germany. Insane!
Now, Total is next. A shame closing down a spectacular place like that. However, we have to finish up what we started off. It's gonna be an unforgettable Saturday evening. Hope to see you guys. Up close!


Wanna thank you all for coming to see ZMR at these Best-of-shows in Germany. Many of you showed up on several occasions. It's been an overwhelming and fantastic experience.
Deeply appreciate the dedication. We we gave it all. You did too. A bond so beautiful. Now we all have to wait for next summer. Stay underground!

Das Bett, Pulp, Anker!!!

Three shows down...and what an amazing run we've had so far!
Frankfurt, Duisburg and Leipzig. Last night at the Anker in Leipzig was a classic. Can't even begin to tell you how grateful we are for having such devoted fans. Back in Norway now looking forward to the last ones in Hanover and Berlin. The best-of-sets have been a blast. Almost a shame it's just these five exclusive German gigs.
Sending a big hello to our tourbuds, Dreadful Shadows and Army of the Universe and our beloved crew. See you soon everyone!

Welcome to the underground!

Last rehearsal tonight! Best-of shows starting on Wednesday in Frankfurt. Get your tickets!
