Progressive rock masters RIVERSIDE have signed a new deal with longtime partners InsideOut Music. The band’s seventh studio album, “Waste7and”, will be released in late September. A European tour will follow in October/November.
RIVERSIDE said in a statement: “Well, we’re back in the game! We’re happy to tell you that our seventh album will be called ‘Waste7and’ (Wasteland) and will be released at the end of September this year. It will be our first album recorded as a trio.
“Our music has become more serious and more mature, so get ready for a manly and emotional album. ‘Waste7and’ is going to be a really accomplished one. It combines the emotional character of the first two and the production maturity of the latest two releases.
“If everything goes according to plan (as we’re still recording), the new RIVERSIDE album will simply destroy you.
“Also this year, we’re going on the ‘Wasteland 2018 Tour’ to promote the new album. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 1st. More info soon!”
In regards to the extended co-operation via a new deal between RIVERSIDE and InsideOut Music, Thomas Waber, label manager/A&R international, checked in with the following comment: “We have been working with RIVERSIDE for a long time now and there is a lot of personal history. The InsideOut Music family would be very different without them, so I am extremely pleased that the family is staying together. We all miss Piotr dearly, but I am looking forward to this new chapter. You are still with us, Grudzień!”
RIVERSIDE had previously announced guitarist Maciej Meller to complete the band’s lineup for shows after taking a long break from live performances due to the tragic passing of founding member and guitarist Piotr Grudziński on February 21, 2016.
