Cult of Luna have teamed up with American singer Julie Christmas for this brand new track “A Greater Call”. The song is taken from the band’s upcoming album Mariner, which is released on April 8 via Indie Recordings.

Cult Of Luna comment: “A Greater Call is the link between the city and the void above. Imagine walking up to your vessel. How the excitement grabs hold of you. The feeling of uncertainty. Are you even going to be able to push through the atmosphere in one piece? A last breathe before blast of and then we leave. The song is about how humanity is cutting its losses and leave. Its only hope lies above. Although it might not be representative of the album as a whole and Julie’s involvement. It is where the journey starts.”

In April the band head out on tour to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their Somewhere Along the Highway album with the dates seeing the band playing the aforementioned album in full.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
