Nordland Arbeiderblad was started in October 1931 as the Communist Party of Norway organ in the vicinity. It was published twice a week.[1] It was not issued during the German occupation of Norway from 1940 to 1945, more specifically after August 1940 when the Communist Party was outlawed.[2] The newspaper resurfaced in July 1945,[3] and lasted until October 1958. Before its demise, it was the third last of the Communist Party newspapers, leaving only Friheten and Ny Tid.[4]

Editors-in-chief include Gotfred Johan Hølvold from 1934 to 1936 and Erling Bentzen from 1949 to 1952.
