At last, Riverside are returning with their forthcoming brand new album Wasteland.
Following the unexpected passing of long time guitarist Piotrech Grudzień after the release of the bands latest album Love, Fear and The Time Machine, to say that the future was uncertain for Riverside would be an understatement. Having recorded material with solo project Lunatic Soul as well as releasing electronic and ambient album Eye of The Soundscape last year, the band decided that they would carry on as a three piece.
Now the time has come for the band to unveil their brand new album Wasteland (or Waste7and) at the end of September to the world alongside a European tour set for October / November and a perfect way to round off the year. Regarding the new album Riverside frontman Mariusz Duda checked in with the following :
“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 d e s t r o y you :)”
I’m pretty sure that has to be the first time that the words destroy you have been followed by a smiley face in Prog but hey rejoice because we’ve got a new Riverside album on the way and if you’ve been listening to any of their Instagram stories, it sounds REALLY good.
Keep an eye out for more news regarding the album and I’ll see you at London’s Electric Ballroom tickets go on sale this Friday June 1st!
