Cult Of Luna Announces "Vertikal II" Release

Cult of Luna has announced the September 17th, 2013 release of "Vertikal II" on Density Records. The 4-track release contains over 30 minutes of music and is available to pre-order today through the Workhorse Music store.

The Swedish rock band released sixth full-length album "Vertikal" in January and recently announced a fall co-headlining tour with Katatonia that begins in Boston, Massachusetts on September 23rd, 2013.

"Vertikal II is the continuation of our journey into the harshness of the monotone city landscape," commented Johannes Persson. "The songs were written during the Vertikal-session and we always intended them to be released close to the album. Justin Broadrick's remix was not a part of the original plan but since it came out phenomenally good we thought that it would fit perfectly as closer of the whole Vertikal-project. With Verikal II we complete and end a chapter that, for the last few years, have been a big part of our lives. Now we leave the inner city and look up into the vast void above."

The track listing is as follows:

1. O R O
2. Light Chaser
3. Shun the Mask?
4. Vicarious Redemption (Justin K. Broadrick remix)

Cult of Luna will return to North America for the first time in eight years this fall for a co-headlining twelve-date tour with Katatonia with support from TesseracT and Intronaut. "After the release of Vertikal and the massive progress we feel we have made over the last couple of years - both as a live act and in the studio - the timing couldn't be better for us to return to US soil,” said Johannes Persson. “Cult of Luna is a live act above all else and we are looking forward to connecting again with the US audience that treated us so well in 2005."
