REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE - New EP Featuring Original STRATOVARIUS Demos Due For Release This Summer
May 31, 2008, 12 years ago
As previously reported, REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE / ex-STRATOVARIUS guitarist Timo Tolkki announced that he and Frontiers Reords have dissolved their partnership. The label has since issued the following statement:"Frontiers Records would like to inform that the forthcoming Revolution Renaissance album New Era is going to be released regularly on June 6th, 2008. The first reviews on the album have been very favourable, with some standouts on the Internet such as:-- 4/5 Metal Temple: "Excellent"
-- 91/100 Melodicrock.com: "A great collection of hard rock/melodic metal songs"
-- 8/10 Rock Hard Germany
-- Album of the Month - Rock Hard Italy
Frontiers has, however, recently decided not to pick up the option for the next Revolution Renaissance studio album for purely business reasons and wishes the best of luck to Timo and the band for the rest of their career. There will be however one further release on Frontiers from Revolution Renaissance: an EP which will include the following tracklisting: 'Heroes' (album version), 'I Did It My Way' (acoustic remix), 'Angel' (acoustic remix), 'Keep The Flame' (acoustic remix), 'We Are Magic' (Tobias Sammet version), 'Last Night On Earth' (original Stratovarius demo), 'Revolution Renaissance' (original Stratovarius demo), 'Heroes' (original Stratovarius demo).
The new EP from Revolution Renaissance will be released after the summer, with further details to be released at a later stage."
