For Immediate Release:
Sweden's Evergrey Embark On Tour with Arch Enemy;
Also Appearing at Atlanta's Prog Power Festival
To Promote Vibrant Recreation Day!!
Evergrey is planning to promote their latest album, the elegant Recreation Day, with a number of live North American appearances, including an impressive tour with rising metal act Arch Enemy, as well as a return to the increasingly acclaimed Prog Power Festival at Earthlink Live in Atlanta on September 5 & 6 (with Nightwish, Rage, Symphony X, and others). This will mark the band's first-ever North American tour.
Having made a lasting impact with critics and fans alike with their last release In Search Of Truth, Sweden's Evergrey has unveiled its latest masterwork upon the world with Recreation Day for InsideOut Music America. Displaying marked growth with each release, Evergrey has concocted a musically colorful, yet lyrically bleak, reflection of the world with Recreation Day. Part fantasy & part honest emotion, the album redefines Swedish Metal with a progressive flair beyond even Meshuggah's capabilities. Thought provoking and sonically uncompromising, Recreation Day is yet another exceptional release for Evergrey, a band whose multi-textured style incorporates Northern moroseness, dexterous progressive musicianship, and soulful, heartfelt balladry.
Vocalist/guitarist Tom S. Englund describes the bold content contained within Recreation Day, "The music is representative of what Evergrey is about, the diversity we have in most of our songs. My idea was to make it really beautiful and hard-hitting." True words indeed, as the power harnessed on the album has compelled the band to film videos for the sobering "I'm Sorry" and the vigorous "Blinded" to promote the release.
Although the content of Evergrey's albums can be described as melancholic, their work ethic is anything but, and we will be seeing a lot more of the band as the year progresses.
