Cult Of Luna and Julie Christmas debut “Chevron” video; announce European tour dates

The Cult Of Luna and Julie Christmas have premiered the official video for their track “Chevron”. The song is taken from their collaborative full-length Mariner, which is out now through Indie Recordings. Copies are available at the label’s webstore, Amazon, and iTunes.

Though not intended to be performed in a live setting, Cult Of Luna and Julie Christmas have lined up a handful of European shows this fall. Guitarist/vocalist Johannes Persson comments:

‘Mariner’ was never supposed to be played live. It was under this premise that we started working together with Julie over two years ago. The goal was to release the album, which was hard enough considering that we live on two sides of the gigantic Atlantic Ocean. But if there’s one thing that life has taught me, it’s that you should never say never, however unlikely an event seems to be. Usually unlikely events are bad things that happen despite all precautions but in this case, let’s just say that the outcome is yet to be decided. The stars have aligned perfectly and I am going to have to take back what I’ve repeated in numerous interviews this past year: That Mariner will not be played live, because it will. We have managed to sync our schedules and in November we will do a select few shows in Europe. Note that we will only play Mariner from start to finish. There will be five Cult Of Luna and Julie Christmas shows in Europe, nothing more and nothing less. There are no plans to perform the album live again. We are as excited to hear how this plays out live as you might be because we haven’t played the songs together before.”

The dates have been booked as follows:

11/02 – Stockholm, SE | Debaser Meds
11/03 – Lausanne, CH | Les Docks
11/04 – Kortrijk, BE | De Kreun
11/05 – Leeds, UK | Damnation Festival
