Following up on 2013’s “Shrine of New Generation Slaves” release, Polish prog band Riverside is now working on a new studio album, to be released August/September 2015 via InsideOutMusic.
Riverside just finished composing all material and announced “Love, Fear and the Time Machine” as the title of the new album.
“Our sixth album, six words in the title, sixty minutes of new music, that’s about how long the new release will be. And we won’t be playing hard rock any more”, Mariusz Duda laughs. “There will be many more melodies dressed in completely different shades. We’re changing and evolving as a band, we’re growing up but most of all we want to keep recording different albums which are simply great to listen to. And the new one will be like a deep breath of fresh air, very different to what we’d done before.
“Love, fear and the times that have shaped us have the biggest influence on our life choices. The lyrics will be about everything that pushes us to make the most important decisions in our life.”
The band is going to start recording the new material in March and it will be possible to follow the progress at Instagram here.
Some of the new songs will already be played at this year’s summer festivals. Here is an overview of all upcoming Riverside festival appearances announced so far for 2015:
