On May 23rd (GAS) / 26th (rest of Europe), Pelagic Records will release CULT OF LUNA's audio book Eviga Riket on vinyl. Eternal Music is the music-only part of audio book / DVD Eviga Riket, which was originally released independently by the band in 2010. Eviga Riket continues the story of Holger Nilsson, who lived in the 1920s and who first lost his family and then his mind.

While the DVD that came with the book was oscillating between text readings and music, the vinyl release of Eternal Music is excluding the readings, and emphasizing the music - laden with sadness and melancholy, these rather quiet tunes are closer to soundtrack-music then to the band's usual sonic realms. While Eviga Riket was without doubt a fascinating experience, listening to the music in one go, without interrupting text readings, is a new and entirely different experience.

Eternal Music will be released as a 12" vinyl record, along with silk-screened cover art, printed in metallic golden ink on thick 500 gsm cardboard. The backside of the cover sheet shows a new illustration by Joris Vanpoucke that has not been used in the original audio book. 500 copies on special mix-coloured gold / black vinyl and 500 copies on black vinyl (180 gram)

In other news, CULT OF LUNA are curating Beyond The Redshift Festival, which takes place for the first time ever on May 10th in London. Find out more here. And if you have not seen this amazing video clip yet, filmed at Helsinki Harbour… go watch it now!
