Shining are about to blow the doors off with new album “Animal”. The latter is indeed set for release on October 19th through Spinefarm Records.
Vocalist, songwriter and frontman Jørgen Munkeby explains:
“I was tired of doing the same thing,” he explains. “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!”
‘Animal’ is simply the ultimate 21st century party metal carnival. Entirely saxophone-free yet utterly unmistakable as a Shining release, it’s the Norwegians’ most startling record yet.
“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!”
