Progressive rock outfit Riverside return to live circuit with SWX show on Thursday 21st MarchPosted on: 12 Mar 2019
Polish progressive rock outfit Riverside will take to the stage of Bristol's SWX with a triumphant arrival back on the gigging circuit on Thursday 21st March 2019.
Riverside has, in fact, been around since 2001 and their sonic credentials thus far include six long-players, two mini albums, two live albums and a compilation, in addition to partaking in a horde of shows across the globe.
2019 marks the release of their latest, seventh, studio album entitled Wasteland, recorded as a trio featuring Mariusz Duda on vocals, guitars and basses, Piotr Kozieradzki on drums, and Micha? ?apaj on the keyboard and Hammond organ duties.
The tour marks their return to the music scene since the tragic, sudden death of original member Piotr Grudzi?ski in 2016, but they're back with newfound energy, determination, passion and, no doubt, compulsion to remember their fallen musical comrade with more fire and glory to continue the band's legacy.
With their atmospheric blend of rock and metal elements and a sound often compared to the likes of Porcupine Tree, Opeth and The Mars Volta, Riverside will more than satisfy the music-craving Bristol masses.
Doors open at 7pm. Tickets cost £18.50 and can be purchased here. SWX is located at 15 Nelson Street, Bristol, BS1 2JY. Tel. 0117 945 0325 for more info.
