Polish Progressive Rock masters RIVERSIDE have just penned a new deal with longtime partners InsideOutMusic and are pleased to announce their upcoming seventh studio album Waste7and as well as a European tour for October/November.


“We’re happy to tell you that our seventh album will be called “Waste7and” (Wasteland) and will be released at the end of September this year. It will be our first album recorded as a trio. Our music has become more serious and more mature, so get ready for a manly and emotional album. “Waste7and” is going to be a really accomplished one. It combines the emotional character of the first two and the production maturity of the latest two releases. If everything goes according to plan (as we’re still recording), the new Riverside album will simply d e s t r o y you.”

Anyone who’s followed our recent coverage of Lunatic Soul, the side project of Riverside’s Mariusz Duda, will be licking their lips at the news.

Talking of the new deal between RIVERSIDE and InsideOutMusic, Thomas Waber, label manager/A&R international InsideOutMusic, checked in with the following comment: “We have been working with Riverside for a long time now and there is a lot of personal history. The InsideOutMusic family would be very different without them, so I am extremely pleased that the family is staying together.”

There’s also the Wasteland 2018 Tour to promote the new album. The band had previously announced guitarist Maciej Meller to complete the band’s line-up for shows after taking a longer break from any live performances due to the tragic passing of founding member and guitarist Piotr Grudziński on February 21st, 2016.
