Season of Mist haben heute die Kooperation mit Red Creek, dem neugegründeten Label von Cult Of Luna, bekanntgegeben. Dort wird die erste Veröffentlichung The Raging River EP am 5. Februar 2021 erscheinen. Aber gleichzeitig auch über Season Of Mist erhältlich sein. Auf der EP ist Mark Lanegan als Gast zu hören.
Cult of Luna kommentieren die EP mit folgenden Worten: „‚The Raging River‘ feels more like a bridge. A midpoint that needs to be crossed so we can finish what we started with “A dawn to fear”. It’s a seamless continuation of the writing process and the creative mindset that has guided us for the last couple of years. It’s been an interesting as well as an introspective way of working, having our instinct leading the way and then having to figure out where it takes us. But not only has it been a linear journey, some aspects of it is clearly circular. We have been a fan of Mark Lanegan for many years. So in 2005 when we wrote the song “And with her came the birds” we had his voice in mind and the working title was “The Lanegan song”. But we were not many years over 20 and our lack of self-confidence prevented us from even daring to ask. It took fifteen years for us to get the guts to ask him. Hearing his voice on “Inside of a dream” is nothing more than feeling that we’re insideof a dream.“

Zu Gründung von Red Creek heißt es:
„After more than 20 years of touring, releasing albums and experiencing different kinds of deals and aspects of the music industry, we believed that it was the right time for us to seek for more freedom and to reduce the distance between us and our audience. So, in 2020, Red Creek was born. It has been created as a safe home for our art, but we wanted to do more and offer our experience, expertise and network to the artists we love and believe in. Therefore, we gathered talents and partners around us to create a crafted solution to our needs that is adaptable also to the needs of other artists.
Red Creek will be our home; if you’ve been with us for 20 years or 2 days, this will be your home too. We’re also pleased to team up with great companies such as MetalBlade for the distribution in North America and Season of Mist for the distribution in Europe. Exclusive editions of ‚The Raging River‘ from Red Creek can be found HERE.“
