Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of CULT OF LUNA to a worldwide deal.
For almost 20 years, CULT OF LUNA has imposed itself as one of the world's leading post-metal lights. Constantly evolving, the band pushes the genre's boundaries from album to album so as to explore the darkest and mistiest, as well as the driest and most abrupt, landscapes.
CULT OF LUNA comments: "We're thrilled to announce our collaboration with Metal Blade and the creation of our new home, Red Creek, that will handle CULT OF LUNA's future productions. This is a dawn to an exciting journey to come."
CULT OF LUNA hasn't released any new material since "Vertikal 1&2" (2013). In 2016, the "Mariner" album — which was made in collaboration with Julie Christmas (BATTLE OF MICE, MADE OUT OF BABIES) — was issued, and praised by both fans and critics. A DVD, titled "Years In A Day", followed in April 2017.
Recognized for its apocalyptic live performances that unrestrainedly explore the audience's imagination, transposing music-triggered sensations visually, CULT OF LUNA will bring its stunning live show to fans across Europe later this year — appearing at both festivals this summer, as well as headlining a tour in November/December with A.A Williams.
