SHINING REVEAL TITLE FOR BRAND NEW ALBUM, ‘INTERNATIONAL BLACKJAZZ SOCIETY’
+ LIVE VIDEO FOR FIRST SINGLE, ‘THE LAST STAND’
+ PRE-ORDERS NOW LIVE, WITH ‘THE LAST STAND’ AVAILABLE FOR INSTANT DOWNLOAD
Norwegian Blackjazz band Shining have disclosed that ‘International Blackjazz Society’ will be the title of their upcoming full-length album, due out on October 16th. ‘International Blackjazz Society’ is the band’s first release through Spinefarm Records, with whom they have signed a worldwide deal.
Just as Venom created ‘Black Metal’ in the early ’80s, so Shining can proudly put their name to ‘Blackjazz’ – also the title of their 2010 album, a Top 10 record in Norway. Following ‘Blackjazz’ came the excellent ‘One One One’ (2013), and now it’s time for studio album number seven; as with ‘Blackjazz’ & ‘One One One’, ‘International Blackjazz Society’ has been mixed by Sean Beavan (Depeche Mode, A Perfect Circle, Slayer etc.), and mastered in Los Angeles by Tom Baker (Nine Inch Nails, Deftones, Beastie Boys etc.).

The brainchild of multi-instrumentalist, vocalist & songwriter Jørgen Munkeby, Norwegian band Shining have been breaking down musical barriers for the past 15 years, mixing progressive, technical metal, jazz, avant-garde and experimental sounds with cutting-edge visuals and blazing live performances. Along the way, Munkeby (skilled saxophonist & guitarist, a graduate of the Norwegian Academy of Music) has released a number of Shining albums, collected awards, toured with the likes of Dillinger Escape Plan & Devin Townsend, and effectively forged a whole new musical genre.
