SHINING founder Niklas Kvarforth announced today that the band has parted company with label Indie Recordings, and has instead signed with Spinefarm Records. The front man, who late last month announced that he was quitting all his other projects, with the exception of Maniac’s SKITLIV, so that he could concentrate on SHINING, is keen to stress that the parting from Indie is completely amicable explaining that “There is absolutely no bad blood between SHINING and Indie Recordings. We sat down together and talked everything through, and everyone came to the conclusion that the best way for SHINING to grow and develop would be to sign the band to a label with the size and experience of Spinefarm. I would like to thank Indie for putting the interests of the band first and allowing this to deal to happen”.
The surprise move also means that SHINING’s much delayed seventh full length album will now appear on Spinefarm rather than Indie, with a release date having been set for the 25th May. Commenting on the upcoming release and the new cooperation with Spinefarm, Kvarforth had this to say: “VII / Född Förlorare” has been long in coming due to a series of unfortunate delays, none of which had anything to do with Indie, and it is a relief to all of us that it will finally see the light of day. I personally am extremely happy to be working with Spinefarm’s Teemu, and am confident that SHINING will now be able to go from strength to strength”.
