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.
‘Last Day’ is the second recording from ‘IBS’ to be released as a single, following on from ‘The Last Stand’; watch the excruciatingly nerve-racking live video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGwBp7Yr0Oo
‘Last Day’ is available for instant download upon digital pre-order of ‘International Blackjazz Society’.
‘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…

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-gardeand 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.
