With the long-awaited seventh full-length album out this month on Spinefarm Records, Extreme Metallers SHINING are set to release a CD single which will only be available in their home country of Sweden. The single will comprise two tracks, one being “Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel”, taken from the new album “VII / Född Förlorare”, whilst the second will be a previously un-released cover of the ALICE COOPER song “Prince of Darkness”.
This will be the first time that SHINING has released a single, and founder and front man Niklas Kvarforth is hopeful that the new video, which was filmed recently and is currently being edited, will be included along with the two tracks. “We are trying to get the video included, but the people behind the single are a little nervous, and probably quite rightly so given its subject matter and content. We are looking into the possibility of maybe including a censored version. We’ll see how that pans out, but whatever happens, the uncensored version will definitely appear very soon, so SHINING fans who have been waiting for it, will not be disappointed”.
Following the Swedish release, the band will consider the possibility of releasing a different version of the single elsewhere.
