The band said the following:

A few years ago we took the decision to keep touring to a minimum.

The sole reason was to prevent us from burning out, to keep the flame and the passion burning.

But the experiences on the road that we’ve shared for almost 20 years has been life changing for all of us.
It has bounded us together like brothers and we have been given the privilege to interact with incredible people all around the globe.

So we thought it was time to release a special object related to the live aspect of Cult of Luna and how we have progressed since the release of ”Fire was born” eight years ago.

‘YEARS IN A DAY’ is more than just a simple DVD.

It’s a bundle including a 2 hours DVD captured in Paris last year at La Gaîté Lyrique

2 live Cds from Roadburn Festival 2013 and 2016

The hi res digital audio from Paris
…& more…

Combined in a collector 10inch vinyl digipack only on sale on http://www.cultofluna.com and strictly limited to 7000 copies.

Releasing DVDs and live documents is always a tough thing at all aspects but that was the right time to do it for the people that are not able to see this band live often and everywhere, and so to end an era. So here is how.

Pre orders will start on January 20th.

All the pictures we posted the last couple of days are taken by Maria Louceiro. Her work is beyond words please check it out. It will be the foundation of the artwork for ‘YEARS IN A DAY’.

Art direction, as usual is handled by Erik Olofsson.

Feel free to share this announcement.
Thank you all.

Johannes Persson said the following:

“‘Mariner‘ was never supposed to be played live.

It was under this premise that we started working together with Julie over two years ago.

The goal was to release the album, which was hard enough considering that we live on two sides of the gigantic Atlantic ocean. But if there’s one thing that life has taught me, it’s that you should never say never – however unlikely an event seems to be.

Usually unlikely events are bad things that happen despite all precautions but in this case… well, let’s just say that the outcome is yet to be decided.

The stars have aligned perfectly and I am going to have take back what I’ve repeated in numerous interviews this past year: that ‘Mariner‘ will not be played live, because it will.

We have managed to sync our schedules and in November we will do a select few shows in Europe. Note that we will only play ‘Mariner‘ from start to finish.

There will be five Cult Of Luna & Julie Christmas shows in Europe, nothing more and nothing less. There are no plans to perform the album live again.

We are as excited to hear how this plays out live as you might be because we haven’t played the songs together before.

Hope to see you in November.”
