Chat live with Johannes Persson/Cult of Luna tomorrow at 4pm Eastern

By on January 8, 2013



Tomorrow, Wednesday, January 9 at 4pm EST, fans of Sweden’s Cult of Luna will have the rare opportunity to participate in a live chat with band member Johannes Persson.


Fans can follow the link below to sign up and be notified when the chat goes live:  


VERTIKAL, the new studio album from Sweden’s Cult of Luna, will be released via Indie Recordings in Europe on January 25, 2013 and Density Records in the US on January 29, 2013.


VERTIKAL marks a much‐anticipated return for Cult of Luna after five years spent cultivating the ideas and directing the influences that have helped form a concept for the album. Distilled throughout are themes of machinery, repetition and clear, linear structures honed to the visual imagery of Fritz Lang’s classic expressionist science‐fiction film ‘Metropolis’. The music broods, builds and boils as you may expect from Cult of Luna, but never over‐complicates itself or veers from its intentions; it is arguably their finest and most cohesive piece of work to date.


VERTIKAL can be pre-ordered here:


Brooklyn Vegan recently premiered the first single, “I: The Weapon.”


Cult of Luna will be returning to the live arena for a full European tour, with a new set of dates just announced in April & May in addition to the previously announced period around the album’s release in January & February. There are US dates being planned and the band intend to tour further in late 2013.
