Cult of Luna Complete New Album

Swedish outfit Cult of Luna have completed work on their latest album entitled "Somewhere Along The Highway."

Slated for an April 24th release date via Earache Records, the initial tracking took place over seven days in a wooden octagon barn surrounded by "Blair Witch" scenery close to the bands hometown of Umea in Northern Sweden.

According to Magnus Lindberg the remote location coupled with the spotting of "Wicca witch women dancing in the woods" and the actual acoustics of the barn itself all contributed towards creating the perfect ambiance to lay down the basic tracks which were done primarily live, as a unit - a departure from previous Cult of Luna recording protocol.

Further recording and mixing happened in Tonteknik studios where both the bands 2004 album "Salvation" and its predecessor "The Beyond" (2003) were recorded. And the result promises to more raw and unpolished then the bands previous releases.

"Somewhere Along The Highway" contains 7 tracks, namely:

- Marching To The Heartbeats
- Finland
- Back To Chapel Town
- And With Her Came The Birds
- Thirtyfour
- Dim
- Dark City, Dead Man
