“SONGS” is receiving phenomenal reactions from media and among others it was recently elected “album of the month” in the 02/13 issue of Germany’s leading Prog Magazine ECLIPSED with an amazing 9/10 points review.
“Celebrity Touch”, the first single off “SONGS” was released as digital download on December 17th, 2012 in Europe with an edit-version as b-side. Get the single via Itunes here: http://itunes.apple.com/album/
RIVERSIDE’s Mariusz Duda comments about the video as follows:
“So here it is, our second-ever video clip and I have to admit – I’m very happy that we had the opportunity to shoot a video for the first single from the new album. “Celebrity Touch” reflects the times we live in. I think everyone has a deep need to feel important somehow, but unfortunately, this need is rarely satisfied. Of course some people do get the chance, mostly, people connected with the so-called celebrity world. This is a story about someone who satisfied this feeling a bit too much and about the band that…chose to play away from the galleries with shitty works. This is our first cooperation with Mania Studio – very talented guys from Poland!”
