Cult Of Luna - Announce New Album Title And European Tour


The Swedes Cult Of Luna will be returning to tour in 2013, showcasing their first studio album in 5 years titled Vertikal. The band will finally release a new album at the beginning of the year. But there is more, the band has also announced a number of European tour dates, check the dates below.

The band released the following statement: "The album will be released at the beginning of the year, and is thematically influenced by the film Metropolis: a hypnotic backdrop of machinery and repetition. Before we started writing we were keen to find a theme that in a very direct way could be shown through the music, and we hope to have achieved this. We developed clear structures - very linear, refusing to over complicate the writing process."

"We realise fans have been waiting for what seems like an age for us to return to the live arena properly, but we were not keen on playing shows before we had the new material ready. There have been changes, and we wanted to come back on our own terms with something completely new. It is very important for us to transpose the idea of a new album into the live setting, to not tread water, and to include the fans in what we've been working on; you will be hearing this very soon."




Tickets for all shows will be on sale this Monday, October 8th.

Pfff. Like if weird influences are unusual to them... Considering their last one was based on the book of a patient from a mental institution. I'm sure they can pull it off.
