The vast majority of Riverside’s music is very, very good in my opinion. Story Of My Dream single features artwork by Travis Smith (Opeth, Katatonia, etc.) and can also be checked out in a video clip directed by Tomasz Pulsakowski / Sightsphere here:
Riverside begin recording new album, and European tour in September. Great news by Polish rock masters Riverside, as they have entered studios to begin the recording session of their upcoming studio album and follow-up to 2018’s acclaimed Wasteland release.
But hear it directly from the band: «Riverside begin recording new album! ».
«So here we are. After almost four years since the release of ‘Wasteland’, we’re finally back in a studio to record our eighth album. This time, the material will be registered in two recording studios, The Boogie Town Studio in Otwock, from which we salute you, and Studio Serakos in Warsaw».
«The new material (which is mostly already there), because of the title and the subject matter, will contain all the characteristics of the Riverside style and should make for the most powerful and intense listening since Anno Domini High Definition.The release date of the eighth Riverside album is scheduled for January 2023».
Having recently toured across North America and Latin America, Riverside continue the celebration of their 20th band-anniversary. Look out for European Riverside 20 shows as follows:
