Shining return to North America

By Tomas Lauvland Pettersen Posted: 02. Apr, 2014

21-date Shining North American tour with Dillinger Escape Plan kicks off this week.

A super busy period ahead for Shining as they prep for the 3rd of April start of a 21-date North American tour, with the Dillinger Escape Plan, Rash Talk and Retox.

Says Shining’s vocalist/guitarist/composer/saxophonist: – Ever since I was floored by Dillinger’s ‘Miss Machine’ album 10 years ago, they have been at the very top of my list of bands I’d love to tour with. Also, all four bands on the tour bill are a great musical match, and audiences can look forward to very special and energetic nights. We’re greatly looking forward to this tour!

As a taster for their upcoming tour, Shining released this week a full version of their festival show at Øya last year, properly mixed and graded:

In 2013, Shining released the final chapter of their acclaimed ‘Blackjazz’ trilogy, ‘One One One,’ via Prosthetic Records in North America and Indie Recordings in Europe. Mixed and co-produced by Sean Beaven (NIN, Marilyn Manson, Slayer) and mastered by Tom Baker (A7X, Deftones, Ministry), the album — praised by Pitchfork as ‘instantly memorable’ album and by MetalSucks as ‘a work of brilliance’– uniquely incorporates progressive rock, jazz fusion, experimental metal and black metal influences.
