Poland’s Progressive Rock shooting stars RIVERSIDE are premiering the first new music or their much anticipated upcoming fifth studio album “Shrine Of New Generation Slaves” today.

Furthermore, RIVERSIDE will soon be releasing a digital download version for the first single off “SONGS”:
“Celebrity Touch” (artwork pictured on top!) will be available, with an edit-version as b-side,
from digital retailers as of December 17th, 2012 in Europe.
 
 RIVERSIDE checked in with the following comment:
 “The lyrics on the new album deal with different situations we face in our modern times and how we sometimes become enslaved by them and by the style of life they dictate.  For instance, we are dominated and bombarded by increasingly stupefying media. 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.”
 
 The artwork for the “Celebrity Touch” single as well as for the “SONGS” album was designed once again by Travis Smith / www.seempieces.com , who has already worked on all the previous releases of the band as well as for artists like Avenged Sevenfold, Devin Townsend, Anathema, Nevermore or Opeth.
“SONGS” will be released in Europe on January 21st, 2013
and in North America on February 5th, 2013 via InsideOutMusic.
