RIVERSIDE commented about “Celebrity Touch”:
“The media, in turn, is dominated by more and more people who are known for their well-knownness… Celebrities, the modern representatives of a need which lies deep within us all and is rarely satisfied – the feeling of importance. This feeling, and some of the dilemmas and complications connected with it, is the subject of our newest single – “Celebrity Touch”. Musically, we still try to extend the bridge to connect the new music to the old. In this track we achieved some kind of original mixture and I hope you will enjoy this piece of new album.”
Recently, RIVERSIDE published an online-teaser for their anticipated upcoming fifth studio album. You can hear the pre-listening version here: http://youtu.be/KOB8BCv9ZmE
“Shrine Of New Generation Slaves” will be released in January/February 2013 (Europe/USA) and is the full-length follow-up to “Anno Domini High Definition“, which had
entered the sales charts in Poland at # 1 (Gold status), Germany at # 94 and The Netherlands on # 58.
In march next year, RIVERSIDE will be present their new album on an extensive tour with the New York progressive band JOLLY and their polish band colleagues DIANOYA.
