Cult Of Luna is streaming their new single 'Into The Night" and it's not exactly what you're expecting. The band has dropped their usual pummeling sound for one laden with clean vocals, huge reverberated guitars, and swooping synthesizers. It's phenomenally good.
"'Into the Night' is about the search for something or someone that's been lost," said guitarist and vocalist Fredrik Kihlberg. "It's about being in the state between conscious and unconscious, awake and dreaming. Seeing, hearing and experiencing things and not knowing if it's real or imagination."
Cult Of Luna will release The Long Road North on February 11. The Long Road features guest appearances from composer Colin Stetson, Christian Mazzalai and Laurent Brancowitz of French indie band Phoenix, and Mariam Wallentin (Wildbirds And Peacedrums). Pre-orders are available here via Metal Blade and here via the band's own Red Creek.
