After more than three months Riverside's New Generation Tour is over. During this tour the band was promoting their latest album Shrine of New Generation Slaves (released at the beginning of this year), and played for the biggest audience so far in more than 20 countries.
Mariusz Duda: "We've played about 50 gigs so far. We visited many places for the first time. The audience was amazing. The concerts in such places as Mexico, Atlanta, Paris, Belgrade and many many more will stay in our memories for long. There are many places yet to visit, and at the moment we're planning the second leg of the tour which will take place in September and October. It's our 10th-year anniversary so we've got to take advantage of that"
