Commented the band: "[This] will be, if not the only, a very rare occasion to see CULT OF LUNA live in 2010."

CULT OF LUNA recently announced plans to release a book. According to the group, it will be "a short story covering the life and times of Mr. Holger Nilsson, the full story behind the 'Eternal Kingdom' [CULT OF LUNA's latest album] theme. The book will be bilingual, written in Swedish and translated into English. The hardback book includes an audiobook. The narrated versions of this short story is accompanied by newly written CULT OF LUNA pieces and soundscapes."

The hardback book/audiobook called "Eviga Riket" will be released in early 2010 by C.O.L Press.

"Eternal Kingdom" is based on an actual journal found in an old mental home. The CD takes listeners on a weird and wonderful journey through the mind of a former patient as he tells the tale of how his wife came to be murdered, and of the mythical creatures he claims to have encountered during the time of the harrowing event.

CULT OF LUNA's DVD, "Fire Was Born", was released on April 27 via Earache Records). Along with an epic live show recorded on July 1, 2008 at Scala in London, England, the disc — which was mixed, edited and designed by the band — features footage of mainman Johannes Persson and Anders Teglund (keyboards) answering questions from fans all around the world and the videos for "The Watchtower", "Leave Me Here" and "Back To Chapel Town".

A video clip for the song "Adrift" taken from the "Fire Was Born" DVD can be viewed below.
