Unlike all previous SHINING albums, “Redefining Darkness”, which will be the band’s eighth full-length release, will not preface its title with a number.
According to founder and frontman Niklas Kvarforth: “The use of numbers to describe their albums is no longer something that SHINING is interested in doing. The new album is without a doubt the darkest thing I have ever done or heard. People will be upset for sure – and hopefully its divine genius will destroy the lives of thousands”
“Redefining Darkness” is set for release via Spinefarm Records on October 29th 2012.
In other news from the band, a new website has been set up at www.shiningasylum.com
SHINING’s next live appearance will take place at Summer-Breeze in Dinkelsbuehl, Germany, on Saturday 18th August, followed by the Bunker Festival in Oslo, Norway on the 25th August.
