Big news announcement for Perfect Beings!
Today we don't have one big announcement, nor do we have two big announcements. We have three. We are thrilled to share with you that Perfect Beings have joined forces with renowned Prog-Rock label InsideOut, with a release planned for early 2018. Furthermore, we are proud to welcome prog-drummer extraordinaire Sean Reinert as our new band member. Sean has been heard with Death and Gordian Knot and was a founding member of Cynic. And now the cherry on top: this new lineup will perform the new album at Rosfest 2018 in Gettysburg, PA, Saturday May 5th at 2pm. Don't miss it...
Instrumental Prog Ensemble Podd Release Debut Album “Cosmic Forces”
Podd, the new instrumental, progressive rock band, presents their debut album “Cosmic Forces,” drawing inspiration from the flood plains of the Mississippi Delta, the mountains of Macedonia, to the foothills of the Himalayas. Podd's original compositions are born from personal introspection. It is a kind of musical storytelling without words, told with the impressions and colors only sound can evoke. Featuring Peter Olsen; guitars, Dejan Dejkoski; drums and percussion, Eric Olsen; keyboards, Takashi Otsuka; bass guitar.
Podd as a name, is an amalgam of Peter Olsen (PO) and Dejan Dejkoski (DD) who form the core of the band. Peter and Dejan codified the overall feel and arrangements of the tunes. Podd is currently working on a feature video for “Beyond Beyond” off of the “Cosmic Forces” album. The band has written all new material for their second album (title unknown) and has already begun the recording process.
URIAH HEEP Announce New Releases on Uriah Heep Records!
Uriah Heep is pleased to announce the release of a 2CD/1DVD package of their 20th Anniversary show in 1989, which has only been available on VHS previously. This remastered release is now available on Download and as 2 CDs and 1 DVD in all new packaging.
This concert is likely to be the only gap in many committed fans’ collections and gives their core fanbase the opportunity to complete the entire Heep discography. This release is the culmination of a long process to make sure all of the Uriah Heep back catalogue is available in modern day formats and digitally.
The band has also heard fans’ voices and released the first vinyl title on its own label, a picture disc LP called Selections from Totally Driven, which features the stunning artwork of Igor Morski. The LP draws on tracks from the band’s own label’s first release, Totally Driven, which was a 2 CD collection of re-records of their greatest hits and continues to be available.
Both of these projects are available on Amazon, iTunes and by all good retailers on the band’s own Uriah Heep Records, via Cherry Red.
