SHINING frontman and founder NIKLAS KVARFORTH explained the reason behind the band’s decision not to spend long periods of time on the road:  “Basically we want to be able to give our audience the best show possible each time we are on stage.  And weeks on the road stuck on a cramped, uncomfortable  nightliner,  with people you don’t even know and with no privacy in which to be able to rest and relax, is not conducive to any of us being able to give it our best on stage, particularly myself.  So that’s something we will definitely not be doing.   We have also decided that we do not want to be shunted into the usual venues that every tour seems to hit, but rather to choose to play better venues, with better facilities not only for ourselves, but also for the audience, wherever possible”.

In addition to the series of individual SHINING will also be playing at various festivals during the year.  Confirmed appearances so far are:

09 May, Incineration Festival, London, England
03 July, Hard Rock Laager, Vana-Vigala, Estonia
30 July, Wacken Open Air Festival, Wacken, Germany
25 Sept, Mörkaste Småland, Hultsfred, Sweden
