SHINING To Headline Sweden's First Black Metal Festival

Swedish black metallers SHINING will make a rare appearance in their home country when they headline the Forlorn Fest, which is scheduled to take place on November 26-27 November at the Fabriken in Umeå, Sweden. According to the organizers, this will be Sweden's first ever black metal festival, and the lineup will feature some of the country's leading bands, many of whom, like SHINING itself, rarely get to play in their own country.

The festival billing is shaping up as follows:

REV 16:8

SHINING's much-anticipated seventh album, "VII / Född Förlorare", which was entirely written by frontman and founder Niklas Kvarforth (SKITLIV, DEN SAAKALDE), is due for release on Indie Recordings later this year.

The band will appear at a number of festivals over the summer, and will embark on a series of European dates with ENTHRONED during October and November.
