Cult Of Luna To Release New Album "Vertikal" In January

"Vertikal," the new studio album from Sweden’s Cult of Luna, will be released via Indie Recordings in Europe on January 25th, 2013 and Density Records in the U.S. on January 29th, 2013. The following press release was issued about the album:

"Vertikal marks a much-anticipated return for Cult of Luna 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 & May in addition to the previously announced period around the album’s release in January & February. There are US dates being planned and the band intend to tour further in late 2013."
