Lukestar´s third album, "Taiga", was released February 25th 2011 and got 5/6 in Norways biggest newspaper, Aftenposten. The first single "Flying Canoes" was A-listed on NRK P3 on the day of its release in January 2011, and the band was immediately booked to both the Roskilde and the Öya-festival. "Taiga" is packed with melody, rhythm and a sound that is reserved for bands that have spent a lot of time on the road together. The album's sonic qualities are as always secured by star-producer Carl Vikman, and Truls Heggero proves once and for all that he is a singer with a personality and uniqueness that is rare not only in Norway, but on our entire fragile planet. The band, which in 2008 was on a galactic trip packed with stardust and cosmic angelsong, has in 2011 turned their nose homeward with a sound that resonate in more earthly surroundings. The melodies of the album "Taiga" has mysteriously appeared in the intersection between human and natures own consciousness, and then the songs have found their way into the light, guided safely by Truls Heggeros distinctive and angelic vocals.
