Regarding the new album:
“Once again, the band has returned with an ambitious concept album. This time, the story follows the wanderings of an unidentified man, stuck in a coma, as he journeys through his past lives. Each song is its own episode in a modern day, sort of The Twilight Zone-esque fashion. The unidentified man enters each world and is offered a choice: stay, or move on to the next in search of something better, something more “perfect.” Vocalist / keyboardist Tommy Rogers spoke with Revolver Magazine for their upcoming issue, which will be on newsstands everywhere March 31st. Pick up the magazine for an exclusive first look at the album’s recording process and concept. New music and pre-orders bundles will be launched on April 3rd, 2015.”
If you can catch this tour, DO NOT MISS IT. Again, this will likely be the best tour of 2015, especially for progressive fans.
