Revolver has a limited-edition "opaque white" vinyl 2LP variant of Cult of Luna's upcoming album, The Long Road North — order yours now!
Fresh off last year's The Raging River EP, Cult of Luna have returned with a new full-length, The Long Road North, and offered up its tectonic lead single, "Cold Burn." The song arrives accompanied by an otherworldly music video, which previews the single's gaming experience that will be released on February 11th alongside the album. The video and game, created by Linus Johansson of North Kingdom Greenhouse, combines and captures Cult of Luna's ethereal soundscapes with real-time technology and interactive storytelling. Within the video, fans are able to explore the visual world created for The Long Road North.
"It's a big and cinematic-sounding album," vocalist-guitarist Johannes Persson commented. "I think one of the reasons why we have been able to be so productive the last couple of years is that we have been consistently writing from the heart. We have let our instincts guide us, and I think it's getting clearer where we are heading."
He added, "The long road north is a long road home. A direction dictated by a call that penetrates rock and echoes through the forest. It flows over every lake, accelerated by the wind. When it reaches you, you know it's time. Time to move forward. You don't know where it will lead but you put the trust in it. With eyes raised towards the midnight sun it pulls you closer. The road is long and the end is uncertain."
