Rapid Eye Movement


We wish you all the best in 2007! May it be full of musical surprises, which we hope to be a part of :)

We've already started working at full steam on the new Riverside album. These days, we're finishing composing the new material and we're about to enter the studio. "Rapid Eye Movement," for this will be the title of our release, will be the most oneiric part of "Reality Dream Trilogy." Once again, there will be nine compositions (3 x 3), and the graphic design will again be created by Travis Smith. The scheduled date for the release is September 2007 on Inside Out label in the world, and on Mystic Production in Poland.

Some of the new compositions will be presented soon during three Riverside gigs:

28.03.2007 - Wiatrak, Zabrze, Poland
30.03.2007 - C.C. de Mortel, Ittervoort, the Netherlands
