Just announced at the ProgPower USA 2017, Redemption is confirmed to headline the festival next year but with a new vocalist. Former vocalist and Fates Warning singer Ray Alder is out and new vocalist Tom Englund (Evergrey) is in! This new line-up including Englund, Nick van Dyk (guitars and keyboards), Sean Andrews (bass) and Chris Quirarte (drums) has finished recording Redemption‘s seventh full-length album, Long Night’s Journey into Day – the first to be produced with Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Primal Fear, Amaranthe, Doro, etc.). Guitarists Chris Poland (Megadeth, OHM) and Simone Mularoni (DGM) return as guest musicians. Fans can anticipate this upcoming album in early 2018.
“We are delighted to welcome Tom as the voice of Redemption“, said van Dyk. “He has an incredibly powerful, soulful and emotional voice that our music really demands and we are quite confident that people will be blown away by what we have created together.”
