With over 96,000 views on YouTube for SHINING’s first ever music video in just over three months of its release, the band have today announced that they will start work on a second video in October of this year. The video, for the track “Tillsammans Är Vi Allt” from SHINING’s seventh full length album “VII / Född Förlorare”, will be filmed both during a live concert and in a studio setting. Martin Strandberg, who directed the band’s first video, “Förtvivlan Min Arvedel”, will once again be directing, together with SHINING founder and front man Niklas Kvarforth. Production will be handled by Jussi Hyttinen of FLC415. The live footage will be filmed at a SHINING concert at the Club Nosturi in Helsinki, Finland, on the 5th October, when the band will end the evening by playing “Tillsammans Är Vi Allt” several times in order for it to be filmed. Fans wanting to attend the show and the filming will be able to get low-priced tickets at www.tiketti.fi.
Joining SHINING live on stage for the filming will be Nordman (Håkan Hemlin), one of Sweden’s top Pop stars, who originally guested on the track on the album, which was release on Spinefarm records earlier this year. No information has been revealed yet as to what the studio footage will consist of, but given SHINING’s reputation and the fact that their first video had to be released in both uncensored and censored versions due to the graphic nature of its content, the new footage is expected to be “interesting” as a spokesperson for the band commented.
SHINING’s first single, “Förtvivlan Min Arvedel“, which featured as its B side a never before released cover version of ALICE COOPER’s “Prince of Darkness” recently went Gold in the band’s home country of Sweden, having sold 10,000 copies.
As well as the gig in Helsinki, SHINING is also set to appear at this year’s Firebox Metal Festival at the Seinäjoen Rytmikorjaamo, Seinäjoki (FI) on the 30th September and at Satan’s Convention at the Headbanger’s Ballroom, Osnabrück (DE) on the 3rd December.
