Norwegian blackjazz group SHINING front man Jørgen Munkeby is currently featured on the latest episode of Official Danko Jones Podcast. You can download the podcast for free on iTunes here, and listen along as Munkeby discusses everything from the group's new release "One One One" to sharing a band name with another prominent metal act and more!
"During our days in Canada, Danko called me up and asked if I wanted to join him on his podcast," Munkeby says. "Being a long-time fan of everything Danko -- his music, his articles and his humor -- I was more than happy to join. I think it turned out to be both a very fun and interesting podcast with some insightful discussions about music that I think our fans will enjoy."
SHINING recently completed its first-ever North American tour, the Brooklyn stop of which was hailed by Time Out New York as "blisteringly intense" and "polished yet off-the-wall alt-metal that can come off like a Nine Inch Nails - King Crimson mash-up." Says Munkeby, "We had a great time in the U.S. and Canada! We wanted to see if we liked touring on the other side of the sea, and we sure did! Hopefully it's not too long until the next time!"
Next week, the band will kick off a European alongside The Ocean. A complete list of dates can be found below.
Listed at #3 in MSN Entertainment's "Top Metal Albums of 2013," SHINING's latest album "One One One" marks the completion of their avant-garde "Blackjazz" trilogy with a "corrosive and creative hybrid of industrial vocals and beats, jazz signatures and black metal aesthetics" (Noisey). The album was mixed and co-produced by Sean Beaven (NIN, Marilyn Manson, Slayer) while being mastered by Tom Baker at Precision Mastering (A7X, Deftones, Ministry). Grab a physical copy of "One One One" on either CD or LP from the Prosthetic webstore HERE or digitally via iTunes, Amazon MP3 or Bandcamp today!
