Cult Of Luna Comments On New Album "Vertikal"

Indie Recordings is proud to announce the signing of Cult of Luna, and as was previously announced, the new album “Vertikal” will be released on January 25th in G/A/S and January 29th worldwide, excluding North America.

The band had this to say about the making of the new studio album: ”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."

Cult of Luna was formed in 1998 in Sweden and released a self-titled debut album three years later. In 2003 Cult of Luna released the album “The Beyond,” which led to the band's first European tour as support for Isis, Poison the Well, and Dillinger Escape Plan. A massive European tour followed and not long after the group got a support slot for the one and only Mastodon in the U.S. in 2005.

The band released “Somewhere Along The Highway” in 2007 and won a rock/metal award from the Swedish Radio channel P3 “for the will and courage to expand and bring new dimensions to the metal genre.” One year later Cult of Luna released “Eternal Kingdom” and in 2011 the band finally began working on what was to become the new album “Vertikal."
