Norwegian Blackjazz band Shining have disclosed that ‘International Blackjazz Society’ will be the title of their upcoming full-length album, due out on October 16th. ‘International Blackjazz Society’ is the band’s first release through Spinefarm Records, with whom they have signed a worldwide deal.

Just as Venom created ‘Black Metal’ in the early ’80s, so Shining can proudly put their name to ‘Blackjazz’ – also the title of their 2010 album, a Top 10 record in Norway. Following ‘Blackjazz’ came the excellent ‘One One One’ (2013), and now it’s time for studio album number seven; as with ‘Blackjazz’ & ‘One One One’, ‘International Blackjazz Society’ has been mixed by Sean Beavan (Depeche Mode, A Perfect Circle, Slayer etc.), and mastered in Los Angeles by Tom Baker (Nine Inch Nails, Deftones, Beastie Boys etc.).

Meanwhile, a live video clip for ‘The Last Stand’ can be seen here:

‘The Last Stand’ is available for instant download upon digital pre-order of ‘International Blackjazz Society’.

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