Cult Of Luna - Reveal New Album Release Date And More Tour Dates

The Swedes Cult Of Luna are starting to reveal more about their upcoming opus Vertikal. It has a release date now. Indie Recordings will release it in Europe on January 25th and Density Records releases it in the US on January 29th, 2013.

According to a press release, "Vertikal marks a much-anticipated return for the band after five years spent cultivating the ideas and directing the influences that have helped form a concept for the album. Distilled throughout are themes of machinery, repetition and clear, linear structures honed to the visual imagery of Fritz Lang's classic expressionist science-fiction film Metropolis. The music broods, builds and boils as you may expect from Cult Of Luna, but never over-complicates itself or veers from its intentions; it is arguably their finest and most cohesive piece of work to date."

Cult Of Luna will be returning to the live arena for a full European tour, with a new set of dates just announced in April and May in addition to the previously announced period around the album's release in January and February. There are US dates being planned and the band intends to tour further in late 2013.

The newly announced tour dates can be found below. These will all be on sale on Friday November 9th, when another handful of European dates will be released. Check out the dates announced before over here.

I also dig it a lot. Love those kinds of artworks that just makes me stare at them for a long time and then say "hey! I found a dude over there!"
