The group will record all shows on their upcoming European tour with Taake and Slegest.
Last year, the Norwegians Shining (NOR) released their latest record, International Blackjazz Society. Almost a year later, they release a new video from it. The experimental metallers decided to showcase the track "House Of Control". You can watch the video directed by Juliette Beavan right now here.
