SHINING reveal nerve-racking live video for ‘Last Day’

Blackjazz trail-blazers Shining have revealed a live video for current single ‘Last Day’, a track from their soon-to-be-released studio album, International Blackjazz Society; the video shows the band performing on a narrow Norwegian mountain ledge called ‘Trolltunga’, 700 metres above the ground. The band flew up a PA system and a power generator, and blasted their patented Blackjazz music to a group of 300 fans and mountain hikers who had made the daunting five hour trip to the ‘Troll’s Tongue’ summit.

Watch the excruciatingly nerve-racking live video here:


The video sounds so good that people may wonder if it’s performed live. On this question, Jørgen Munkeby replies: “The audio for this video is 100% true. No edits was done whatsoever, no dirty tricks, just great mixing by our producer Sean Beavan. And a bunch of dedicated musicians!”

Munkeby continues:

“I’m so happy and proud to finally be able to present to you the first song from our insane mountain concert at Trolltunga in Norway. Not only was it the absolute craziest day of my life, and an experience that will be ingrained in my viking bones until I die. But we also managed to record and film it all, and not to mention – get away from it all alive! (Which is no given up there.) I hope this video will give you a memorable experience that you won’t forget. In addition it gives you a unique opportunity to see a Norwegian Blackjazz band running free in its natural habitat. Enjoy! And don’t try this at home!”

Last Day is the second recording from ‘IBS’ to be released as a single, following on from ‘The Last Stand’. Last Day’ is available for instant download upon digital pre-order of ‘International Blackjazz Society’. Album pre-orders – including official merch bundles offering CD, vinyl, T-shirt & patch options – are live here.

‘International Blackjazz Society’ is the band’s first release through Spinefarm Records – with whom they have signed a worldwide deal – and is due out on October 23rd.

In addition to this, Shining have announced a headline European tour, taking in 15 countries, set to take place in Oct/Nov of this year.
