REDEMPTION ANNOUNCES FIRST SHOWS SINCE 2007, MORE TO FOLLOW
NEW ALBUM SNOWFALL ON JUDGMENT DAY AVAILABLE NOW
Los Angeles prog metal band REDEMPTION will be playing out in 2010 in support of their recently-released fourth CD, Snowfall on Judgment Day, on Inside Out Music. The first two headlining shows have been announced for:
February 4th, 2010 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Whiskey
February 5th, 2010 – Mesa, AZ @ UB’s
More shows will be announced in the coming weeks.
Multi-instrumentalist / songwriter Nick van Dyk commented "We're very excited to get back out and play together, including new music from Snowfall. These first shows will be headlining gigs and they may be the only headlining shows we play in the US next year. We have plans for some very cool US support dates later in the year, and hope to announce some additional dates in Europe as well."
Snowfall on Judgment Day was released in October and has received rave critical reviews (from BWBK to Keyboard magazine and many in between) and has been featured on AOL noisecreep and satellite radio, both firsts for REDEMPTION. It is the band's fastest selling CD to date. Added van Dyk, "It's fitting that our first show for this record is at the Whiskey -- that's where I met Ray and Bernie twelve years ago and in a way, it's where the band began. We're really looking forward to getting back in front of our fans."
Throughout spring 2009 the band finalized Snowfall On Judgment Day, which was mixed by well-known producer Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Jorn Lande, Hatesphere). The album features a more mature songwriting than ever before and shows the band taking several steps beyond the quality of their previous output, and standing out from the rest of the crowd in the progressive metal scene with their unique brand of heavy, melodic and emotionally powerful music. The legendary James Labrie (Dream Theater) also performs a duet guest vocal spot on the song “Another Day Dies.”
REDEMPTION has clearly delivered their best album to date – an album that will stand as a benchmark for progressive metal for years to come.
