Cult Of Luna to release new album early next year; Euro tour announced

Posted by AP on 06/10/12

Cult Of Luna are planning to release a new album titled "Vertikal" early next year. The band has released the following statement regarding the thematic ideas behind it:

"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."

They have also announced the following European tour in support of it:
