SHINING recently announced summer European festival dates. SHINING's 2015 festival dates including appearances at Barroselas Metal Fest, Incineration Fest in London, Wacken Open Air, and many more.

Following their festival appearances, SHINING will headline a tour of Germany with support from label mates DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT and IMPERIUM DEKADENZ. The tour, which kicks off on November 15 in Munchen, continues for a week before concluding in Hamburg. A full list of confirmed tour dates and festival dates can be found below.

Founded in 1996, SHINING has since earned notoriety within the black metal underground as a result of the band's innovative and ever-evolving sound, in addition to main-man Niklas Kvarforth's frightening and abrasive stage persona. Characterized by Kvarforth's philosophy on suicide, SHINING was originally conceived as a "suicidal black metal" band, inciting violence within their rabid fan-base through the band's provocative lyrics and self-destructive imagery. Refusing to be bound by the confines of the genre, SHINING later expanded their unique approach to songwriting and themes, incorporating melodic death metal passages and dynamic vocals ranges. These new influences developed SHINING into new breed of extreme music players, whose musical prowess continues to tread new ground.
