Cult of Luna have announced their new album The Long Road North on February 11, via Metal Blade Records and features guest appearances from composer Colin Stetson, Phoenix’s Christian Mazzalai and Laurent Brancowitz plus more. Ahead of the release, the band have shared Road North’s opening track, “Cold Burn.”

Guitarist/Vocalist Johannes Persson on The Long Road North:

“It’s a big and cinematic sounding album. I think one of the reasons why we have been able to be so productive the last couple of years is that we have been consistently writing from the heart. We have let our instincts guide us, and I think it’s getting clearer where we are heading,” reveals vocalist/guitarist Johannes Persson, who has been one of the primary driving forces behind the band since their inception.

Persson continues, “The long road north is a long road home. A direction dictated by a call that penetrates rock and echoes through the forest. It flows over every lake, accelerated by the wind. When it reaches you, you know it’s time. Time to move forward. You don’t know where it will lead but you put the trust in it. With eyes raised towards the midnight sun it pulls you closer. The road is long and the end is uncertain.”
