Cult of Luna announces new album, Vertikal II

Official press release: Cult of Luna announces the September 17, 2013 release of Vertikal II on Density Records. The 4-track release contains over 30 minutes of music and is available to pre-order today through the Workhorse Music store, as well as through iTunes. The Swedish rock band released their sixth full-length album Vertikal in January and recently announced a fall co-headlining tour with Katatonia that begins in Boston, Massachusetts on September 23, 2013. "Vertikal II is the continuation of our journey into the harshness of the monotone city landscape," commented Johannes Persson. "The songs were written during the Vertikal-session and we always intended them to be released close to the album. Justin Broadrick's remix was not a part of the original plan but since it came out phenomenally good we thought that it would fit perfectly as closer of the whole Vertikal-project. With Verikal II we complete and end a chapter that, for the last few years, have been a big part of our lives. Now we leave the inner city and look up into the vast void above." Vertikal II track listing: 1. O R O 2. Light Chaser 3. Shun the Mask 4. Vicarious Redemption (Justin K. Broadrick remix)

Vertikal was fcking rubbish and hard to listen to, compared to the brilliance of "somewhere along the highway". They will never top it and the band is going down hill to be honest.
