Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 12th November 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Swedish film maker Martin Strandberg will embark on tour with Niklas Kvarforth’s Shining around Europe where he will film more footage and interviews with the band for the upcoming documentary he is making about the band. Work on the documentary, which traces Shining’s often turbulent history, was begun earlier this year, and is expected to finish in time for a general release towards the end of 2014.

Whilst being the subject of the documentary, founder and frontman Niklas Kvarforth is keen to emphasize that Shining itself has no input or influence whatsoever on the content, commenting:

The documentary was entirely the idea of Martin Strandberg, and, other than being interviewed for it ourselves, we have no hand in it at all.  All we know is that family, friends, former band members and who knows who else are contributing, but what they’re contributing we will have to wait to find out along with everyone else.

We are very excited about the new material and every time we hit the studio we never know what the outcome will be, i mean we have a general idea but we’re never a 100% sure how the final result will be until we’re done and can sit back and listen to it.
