What's up with Hellvar? Update of the History of Hellvar

What's update
Elvar is working on a lot of essays for his studies in international politics. He will be done in a month or so, and then Hellvar could start gigging more. Heiða is starting work on the new children's album with Dr. Gunni. They will be recording this summer. Alexandra went to Belgium for a while and we asked our friend Aðalheiður Arna Björgvinsdóttir to sing the other vocal-bits. She also has a solo project called Death of a Scoobafish. She was so good, Hellvar wanted to keep her and next step would be to rehearse new material with her singing, as well as perhaps playing keyboards.

Alexandra is still in the band too, of course. On drums we now have Andri Geir Árnason, he replaced Birkir Fjalar Viðarson. Andri is also in Hljómsveitin Ég and Monterey, but has in the past played in Geirfuglarnir. Haukur Morðingi is working in full time, and is still our bass-player. The last time Hellvar played live was @ Paddy's 10 year anniversary gig on Thursday last week.
They dropped the computer during live-shows at this moment, so Hellvar is pure indie-rock!!!

Hellvar performed @ Paddy's Forever 2013 on Thursday 4. April 2013

Now it has been 10 years since Paddy's opened, almost in the middle of the street @ Hafnargata 38. Paddy's welcomed young, ambitious musicians. Many bands have taken their first public steps on the stage at Paddy's and through the years, Paddy's has been the cradle that Rocks Kef City.
On the 4th - 6th of April 10 years of Rock'n Roll @ Paddy's was celebrated with the bands that we can, without a doubt, call "our bands". Some of the bands came back together for this occasion only so we will definitely witness some legendary comebacks.
