SHINING - Announce Full List Of European Tour Dates

Following the announcement by Sweden's Shining that going forward they would be eschewing the usual practice of dragging bands on lengthy tours through several countries in favour of shorter tours on a country-by-country basis, the band have now completed booking European dates for the rest of this year and are able to announce their full "touring" schedule between September and the end of 2015. During this period Shining will visit a total of nine countries in support of their critically acclaimed ninth full-length album IX/Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends (released in April this year). A special double gatefold edition of the album, in black and white marble vinyl, strictly limited to 300 copies, will be available for sale exclusively on the tour. Tour schedule is listed below.
Shining frontman and founder Niklas Kvarforth previously explained the reason behind the band's decision not to spend long periods of time on the road: "Basically we want to be able to give our audience the best show possible each time we are on stage. And weeks on the road stuck on a cramped, uncomfortable nightliner, with people you don't even know and with no privacy in which to be able to rest and relax, is not conducive to any of us being able to give it our best on stage, particularly myself. So that's something we will definitely not be doing. We have also decided that we do not want to be shunted into the usual venues that every tour seems to hit, but rather to choose to play better venues, with better facilities not only for ourselves, but also for the audience, wherever possible."
