Sweden’s SHINING will head for Croatia and Slovenia next year to play two festivals in countries in which the band has rarely appeared before.  First up will be the Burning Sea Festival in Zadar, Croatia on the 8th June, followed by Metal Days, in Tolmin, Slovenia on the 25th July.  SHINING has so far also been confirmed to appear at the RAGNAROK festival in Lichtenfels, Germany, in April.

Founder and frontman Niklas Kvarforth recently announced that he would be publishing a book containing all the lyrics he has ever written and which, rather than allowing them to be translated by a professional translator and thereby risk losing the emotions that went into them,  he himself has translated into English from the original Swedish.  The first edition paperback, “When Prozac No Longer Helps”,  will be hand-numbered in the author’s own blood and will be published on the 7th December.  In order to ensure that genuine fans can get hold of the book, “When Prozac No Longer Helps” will only be available through the SHINING web shop and can be pre-ordered at http://www.shininglegions.com/product/niklas-kvarforth-when-prozac-no-longer-helps-first-edition-paperback

SHINING this week released their eighth full length album  ”Redefining Darkness” on Spinefarm Records.  In a departure from the band’s usual habit of including the album number in the title, ”Redefining Darkness” contains no number, but still maintains all the complexity and distinct character that sets SHINING apart from so many of the identikit bands that proliferate on the scene today. More information about SHINING can be found on the band’s website at www.shiningasylum.com

The official video  for the track “Tillsammans Är Vi Allt” from SHINING’s album “VII / Född Förlorare” can be seen below or at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iULz19Cc7yw
