Osada Vida, one of the most interesting Polish bands on the prog-rock scene, recently debuted on stage in a new improved line-up. The historical event took place last Friday at Leśniczówka Club in Chorzów, where the band was joined by their new singer Marek Majewski, previously known from the band Acute Mind.
Łukasz Lisiak, the bass guitarist and the band’s former singer comments: “We are very happy that we met Marek on our way. Until now, we were like a sailing boat without a sail. With Marek on board, we will sail ahead with full force and determination. We are not afraid of any stage – we are complete as a band. I can only regret one thing – it happened at least one year too late. Then again, better late than never ;-)”.
The band performed a very energetic set comprised of old well-known tracks as well as a few new songs that will appear on their next album, scheduled for release in the Spring of 2013. The concert in Chorzow was also a warm-up show before the next big event in the band’s career – ProgStage Festival in Israel. The fetival is scheduled for October 4th-7th, 2012 and will present heavy metal, progressive metal and some progressive rock bands. Swedish metal band Pain of Salvation will headline the festival. Other top acts include the progressive rock band The Flower Kings (Sweden), the metal band Andromeda (Sweden) and one of the most famous bands from Israel – Orphaned Land.
