CULT OF LUNA premiere acoustic version of “Passing Through”

By on March 9, 2013


On the evening of the Swedish band’s show in Helsinki, Finland last week, Cult of Luna ventured out into a blizzard to film an acoustic version of “Passing Through.”


“We shot it in one take and my fingers were so cold that I couldn’t feel them after only half-way through the song. I didn’t get the feeling back for over 30 minutes after we got inside,” says guitarist Johannes Persson. “All wind sounds you hear are real – no special sound effects to make it sound cool – the sound is straight from the mic. It was fucking freezing and fucking windy. The blizzard came from Sweden where it had closed cities and roads and it got worse later on during the night. The images actually do not give the cold justice.”


“Passing Through” is featured on Cult of Luna’s sixth studio album,Vertikal, which was released through Density Records on January 29, 2012. A limited edition vinyl version of the album is being released on March 26, 2013 in the US. The pre-order/purchase link is
