2003-10-15Attention! – almost a year has passed, but we have finally managed to finish it!!! After the final touches, the album "Out Of Myself," as this is what we're talking about, is at last in our hands. Unfortunately, it is still not available in shops, but the odds are that it will be there this year. It will consist of 9 tracks, five of which are those from our demo, mastered anew, and the remaining four are previously unreleased compositions. What else? The material is 52 minutes long, the story described in the lyrics has gained a deeper meaning and allows us to call it a "concept album." Pjepshu designed a wonderful booklet, for which we would like to thank him yet again (Leave the army, pal, will you? :-)) And the tracklisting of our debut album is as follows:
1. The Same River
2. Out Of Myself
3. I Believe
4. Reality Dream I (instrumental)
5. Loose Heart (a.k.a. Loosing Heart)
6. Reality Dream II (instrumental)
7. In Two Minds
8. The Curtain Falls
Soon, there will be a new downloadable track on our site – In Two Minds – that's why we invite you to visit us from time to time.
What's new on the site? Right now you can read two new reviews in the media/reviewssection – both were published on foreign prog music portals.
We're ending the news on a slightly sad note. Unfortunately, we have to cancel all the concerts we planned for the following few months. Why? Jacek has left the band for personal reasons. We respect his decision. We'd like to thank him most sincerely for everything he's done, for his contribution and commitment to Riverside. Still, we can't imagine playing our music without keyboards, therefore, it will take some time until the trio changes into a quartet again. We are looking for a keyboard player, so if you would like to have a go, let us know! :-)
We're still here, we still exist and we have absolutely no intention of falling apart :-) After the longish break, we're rehearsing again and creating new compositions. And we definitely intend to live up to our own high expectations.
That's it for now. To be continued.
