Shining, who released the new album Animal in October, have shared a stunning new video for "Fight Song." Watch the clip below.
The song is described by multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter, and frontman Jørgen Munkeby as "a special song on our new album Animal. It is more synth-driven than any other songs we've ever made, and it manages to both be vulnerable, beautiful, desperate and full-on rock at the same time! I also love the fact that it's a very different song than our previous single 'Animal.'"
About the video, the artist says, "It was an amazing week in Iceland shooting on all of these out-of-this-world locations! Also, no CGI has been used whatsoever. So if you're wondering if the perfectly-placed rainbow is real, yes, it's real AF. The weather gods were unusually helpful that week!"
From its retina-frying artwork to its relentless stream of memorable refrains, Animal is simply the ultimate 21st century party metal carnival.
Entirely saxophone-free yet utterly unmistakably a Shining release, it's the Norwegian band's most startling record yet.
Although the new album was once again produced by Shining and longtime associate Sean Beavan (Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle), esteemed studio guru Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Halestorm, Papa Roach), son of the legendary Kevin Churko, was brought in to complete the final mix. The results are dazzling, multi-dimensional, and almost stupidly exciting.
Animal follows 2015's International Blackjazz Society.
