Shining (NOR) have announced that their new album “Animal” will be released on October 19. With this news, the band have also released the title track, which you can stream below:
Jørgen Munkeby said this album marks a departure from the group’s ‘blackjazz’ phase:
“I was tired of doing the same thing. I was done with ‘blackjazz’ and wanted to create something new and exciting. I needed a change. I’m finally at the point where I have nothing to lose and everything to win. We had 360 degrees to play with so we could’ve gone in any direction. This new record is more Muse than Meshuggah, more Ghost than Gojira, and more Biffy Clyro than Burzum!”
He also added the following about the title track:
“When we wrote ‘Animal,’ we knew that we would want to announce the album with that song! It’s just such a fun and rocking number, and I also can’t wait to open our live shows with it! Wolf howl, and GO!”. The previously released track “Everything Dies” will also appear on “Animal“.
If you missed it, the band previously released “Everything Dies” from the effort awhile back.
