SHINING Announces North American Tour Dates

Norwegian industrial jazz-metalists SHINING are excited to announce dates for a headlining North American tour this fall, including the group’s first-ever performances in Canada. This marks the group’s first North American activity since an acclaimed set at a South By Southwest in 2012. Support acts will be announced in the coming weeks.

Front man Jørgen Munkeby made the following statement:

“It’s about f**king time we come over to the States’ has become quite a mantra for me in the last few years. So after a while of fooling around with a bunch of different support tour options, we just decided to grab the bull by its horns and book our own headliner tour! It’s going to be some crazy nights of pounding Blackjazz energy you don’t want to miss!”

SHINING released the completion of their avant-garde “Blackjazz” trilogy, “One One One,” via Prosthetic Records earlier this year. Mixed and co-produced by Sean Beaven (NIN, Marilyn Manson, Slayer) and mastered by Tom Baker at Precision Mastering (A7X, Deftones, Ministry), the album was described as “a corrosive and creative hybrid of industrial vocals and beats, jazz signatures and black metal aesthetics” by Noisey while being likened to Nine Inch Nails and King Crimson by Pitchfork due to its “throbbing electronics.”

See/hear for yourself in their sci-fi influenced music video for the single “I Won’t Forget” HERE.

One One One Press Quotes

One One One is every bit heavy as it is catchy… solidifying them as one of the best, and most interesting, metal bands out there” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy

“Coupling punishing metal textures with jazz time signatures and melodic exploitations with the subtlety of a commercial arc-welder… If Opeth is the thinking man’s black-metal King Crimson, the same can certainly be said for Shining — only the thinking is significantly darker” – Alibi

“With One One One, Shining step through the next door toward an actual industrial metal band: hard electronic rhythms, matched with almost shrill guitar tones and over laid with oddities… they become part of the vernacular of the new tribalism of industrial culture” Metal Injection

“9 extreme pop songs shellacked by juddering industrial and progressive metal, resulting in an exciting, immediate and highly addictive listen” – Scratch The Surface
