Cult Of Luna - Debut Video, To Perform 'Mariner' On Tour

Cult Of Luna have shared a couple of good news recently. In terms of live appearances, they have announced 5 exclusive European shows where they will perform Mariner, their collaboration with Julie Christmas, in its entirety. The shows happen in November with Julie Christmas and there are no plans to perform the album live again. In other news, the band has just released a video today for one of the tracks on the release, "Chevron". So, enjoy the trippy result!

Johannes Persson explained: "Mariner was never supposed to be played live. It was under this premise that we started working together with Julie over two years ago. The goal was to release the album, which was hard enough considering that we live on two sides of the gigantic Atlantic ocean. But if there's one thing that life has taught me, it's that you should never say never -however unlikely an event seems to be.

"Usually unlikely events are bad things that happen despite all precautions but in this case... well, let's just say that the outcome is yet to be decided. The stars have aligned perfectly and I am going to have take back what I've repeated in numerous interviews this past year: that Mariner will not be played live, because it will. We have managed to sync our schedules and in November we will do a select few shows in Europe. Note that we will only play Mariner from start to finish. There will be five Cult Of Luna & Julie Christmas shows in Europe, nothing more and nothing less. There are no plans to perform the album live again. We are as excited to hear how this plays out live as you might be because we haven't played the songs together before."

Should probably try to see them in Stockholm, only two hours away... Not the biggest fan of Mariner but I guess it will be a kind of "I was there"-experience.

I fly out of the UK on the 4th, I'm gutted. Almost tempted to go to the gig in Stockholm
