Our featured album this comes from American composer Dale Simmons, whose band Exovex is releasing the album Radio Silence. The album features several notable names, including Richard Barbieri and Gavin Harrison of Porcupine Tree. You can get information on the album and order it directly from the artist here.
Making their debut on the show this week was Virginia based prog-metallers Iris Divine. Earlier this year they released their second album, Karma Sown, and later this year they will be doing a small tour with former When Prog and Power Unite co-host Jeff Teets and the rest of MindMaze. You can check Iris Divine out on Facebook here, and the tour dates below.
Next up some news. I mentioned during the program that Arena has a new album coming out, The Unquiet Sky, and you can buy that directly from Arena here.
IZZ will be having a CD release party for Everlasting Instant in New Jersey on Sunday, April 19th, and you can get some info on that here. The show is hosted by the NJ ProgHouse, and they are a fantastic outfit. If you live in the Northeast US, you should check them out in the future, even if you can’t make this particular show.
Evergrey will be touring America again! You can get info on those shows, along with their dates worldwide here.
Coheed and Cambria are also touring! Live somewhere that no one ever comes to? Well, they are specifically hitting some of those places, so Dewey Beach, Delaware, be ready! Check out the full dates here.
Next up, a band I’ve long been a fan of, Secret Sphere, has re-recorded and is re-releasing their early album, A Time Never Come. You can get it through Amazon here.
That’s all for now, but keep your eyes and ears tuned, as I hope to have my review of the aforementioned IZZ album online this Friday.
