This week we head into the seldom explored Russia for our featured album, Lighthouse, from Iamthemorning. The band boasts only two members, but have managed strong support to help round out their recent albums. On this release that includes Mariusz Duda, Colin Edwin, and Gavin Harrison. The show will give a nice representation of their soft and delicate sound. If you’d like to learn more you can visit them here, and buy the album here.
We also had a pair of bands making their debut on the program tonight: Paatos you can visit here, and Poverty’s No Crime you can learn about here. The latter has a new album, Spiral of Fear, due out April 29th in Europe.
Next up, June 17th has been announced as the release date of Ayreon‘s The Theater Equation! Here is what Arjen had to say about it:
Good news! ‘The Theater Equation’ will be available June 17th as a deluxe artbook version including blu-ray, 2DVD’s & 2CD’s, as well as a special edition 2CD & DVD digipak, standalone blu-ray & digital download. We’ll keep you updated about the pre-sales!
Finally, Haken, as we’ve somewhat conservatively documented, has a new album called Affinity coming out on April 29th. Go ahead and wow yourself with their newest lyric video below, and then pre-order it here!
