This new lineup of the band has been a great excuse to re-imagine our set. We're bringing back some old school EDENSONG classics. We're unveiling some brand new songs! We're also putting a new spin on the YITGOY material that we've been focusing on these past few years. The bands we're playing with are incredible and it's an honor to play with these guys: Ben Levin, the Nightwatch, Stratospheerius and more! These are gonna be great nights of music", says frontman James Byron Schoen As a special treat to all fans attending the upcoming shows, EDENSONG will have an exclusive live album for sale, that will only be available at the gigs. The new live album "YITGOY live at Terra Incognita" features EDENSONG's complete May 2017 performance of their critically acclaimed concept album Years in the Garden of Years at the Terra Incognita festival in Quebec City. This exclusive live album is only available directly from the band at the shows on this tour and includes a digital download of a hi-res video of the entire concert. Quantities are very limited. Of the exclusive live release James Byron Schoen says "This was a very special performance for the band and I'm thrilled that we were able to capture it in such detail. We've been fortunate enough to play the Terra Incognita festival twice, and while our first performance there is also one of my favorite EDENSONG gigs, I think that this 2017 performance is really the peak of what we achieved with our 2009-2017 lineup. I didn't know at the time that this would be one of our last shows together, so it's all a bit bittersweet for me. I think we brought a ton of energy and emotional presence and just really enjoyed the moment and the fantastic Quebecois prog audience. For me, it's a very fitting tribute to the end of an EDENSONG era." Recently EDENSONG announced the addition of drummer Nicholas DiGregorio and koto player Kento Iwasaki to the band roster. The duo joins the eclectic lineup of James Byron Schoen (vocals/guitar), TD Towers (bass/vocals) and Barry Seroff (flute), following the departures of Tony Waldman (drums) and Stefan Paolini (keyboards) last year after a successful North American tour. DiGregorio, a dear friend of the band for twenty years who has a background in jazz and improvisational drumming, and Iwasaki, a koto player and composer who is at home playing anything from traditional Japanese music to jazz and modern pop, further expand the sonic palette of EDENSONG, a band already known for its constantly evolving sound. EDENSONG have headlined shows around North America, played at prestigious progressive rock festivals such as RoSfest, Progtoberfest, Progday, 3RP, and Terra Incognita, and supported diverse acts including Kings X, Ozric Tentacles, Pain of Salvation, Neal Morse, and Anglagard. They have been called "a great example of the contemporary face of progressive rock" by Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson. EDENSONG's latest release, a concept album entitled Years in the Garden of Years, and called a "masterpiece" by critics, was released in 2016 on Laser's Edge. Stream the full album HERE .
