Look this is bothering me now. Listened to disc 1 of Sum of no evil at lunchtime and thought it was terrific. What is going on? This seems to have all kicked off since my 'discovery of the Beatles'

Well of course Roine is a massive Beatles fan so they have been a big influence on his writing and career in general.

This is all great to hear AA wink

This guy does an amazing guitar solo rendition of Kaipa's "Arcs Of Sound" from their Wake Of Evolution album.

ALERT - ALERT - ALERT

NEW FLOWER KINGS ALBUM


Special exciting news from Jonas Reingold

Dear friends, I promised some important news last week, and here it is. Reingold Records will of course offer a signed copy of this highly awaited CD. Pre sales will start in May 2012.

For all Swedes, donīt miss us at Sweden Rock Festival where we going to do our first reunion gig. It will be a heck of a party for sure.

With love from the Garden / Jonas

THE FLOWER KINGS - Press statement Feb 2012:

Legendary progressive, iconic, symphonic rockband "The Flower Kings", formed in 1995 by guitarist, singer,
composer Roine Stolt ( Transatlantic ) , announce their immediate return to service in 2012 after an almost 5 years well earned hiatus.
The band consisting of Roine Stolt, bassplayer extraordinaire Jonas Reingold, keyboarder grand deluxe Tomas Bodin,
singer & guitarist Hasse Froberg and new 26 year old Berliner dextrous drummer prodigy Felix Lehrmann, started the recording
of a new album at Varispeed studios in Sweden on January 23rd.
The music is recorded in classic 70's style, with all musicians performing live in a room thru 70's vintage tube recording equipment
and old famous NEVE consoles.
If all the Gods and muses are onboard the new TFK is scheduled for an album release on June 6th on the Inside Out Music label (Century Media/EMI).
The yet unnamed album has a 23 min epic centerpiece and the material is all classic Flowerkings style with all
the dreamy melodic & cinematic elements that the bands fans has come to love over the years, but also contain some heavier psychedelic
music and some darker hi energy material.

The band is likely to embark on a headline european tour in september this year but will have it's official first re-union gig at the "Sweden Rock Festival"
in June 2012.

Can't think why, but over on the Garden Of Dreams forum, they're all getting rather excited about this.
Not really bothered myself, don't really rate them much, certainly not when compared to the fantastic talents of Justin Bieber and Britney Spears. Still, I may give it a listen...

WHAT? WE HAVE TO WAIT TILL JUNE? APPALLING!
Think I need to start wearing the old nappy again, in case I wet myself with anticipation.
EXCELLENT NEWS!!!
At last, the Kings of modern prog are back to take their rightful place at the top of the pile.
FANTASTIC! cool cool cool
