Shining frontman Niklas Kvarforth commented on the release: “In no way should this EP be seen as a new direction for Shining, and it is absolutely no indication of what you can expect from our upcoming eighth album. Like most musicians neither myself, nor the rest of the band, restrict ourselves to listening to only one genre of music. We all have eclectic tastes, and finding ourselves with some spare time in the studio, we recorded a total of six covers, and decided to release four of them. This EP simply represents some of the artists and music that we like. We know that those fans of Shining who limit themselves to a narrow musical spectrum will hate the album, but that really is of no concern to us.”
“Lots of Girls Gonna Get Hurt” features cover art from Pauline Greefhorst and will be released on May 16 via Spinefarm Records.
Shining’s currently-untitled 8th LP is due in Autumn.
