The Quireboys launch a new project called Orchestral Quireboys. Double Album, Double Show in September 2020 with fan-funded Hell Raiser Campaign.
After 35 years of Pure Rock n Roll, The Quireboys are now ready for a new challenge. We bounced a lot of ideas about but unanimously came up with something rather special that will allow fans to experience and immerse in a totally new side of The Quireboys, with a full Orchestra behind them. This special project aptly named, Orchestral Quireboys will be created, rehearsed and staged as a doubleheader, ONLY @ the 02 Forum Kentish Town UK on the 4th & 5th September 2020. This is not a cheap project but something the band feels will create something live on stage that has never been witnessed before.
The whole set will be recorded Live for an exclusive Limited Edition Double Vinyl & Double CD pack that can only be bought here. We had a bad experience with Pledge recently, hence why, when we heard our label was creating a new Fan Funded platform called Hell Raiser, we knew we could possibly pull this off with our loyal fans support. This album will not be available anywhere else apart from this Hell Raiser Platform, A timeless piece from a magical adventure.
All Royalty & VIP tickets for both Live nights @ the Forum next September, Signed Black & Coloured Double Vinyl Packs, Signed CD packs plus a few other specials can only be bought from our new fan funding platform Hell Raiser giving our Label and management team, full control of this whole campaign.
Its something we know we can pull off, it will take an incredibly long time, not to mention patience, perfecting the arrangements, rehearsing the songs, however in every way possible it will be totally worth it, whats more all Fans who help us reach our Raise can also get the only copies in the World of the show on Vinyl or CD.
This means a lot to all of us and we really want to make it a show like no other. If you feel you can help us make it a reality, please feel free to get involved
Spike, Guy, Paul & Keith

Progressive rock legends THE FLOWER KINGS are pleased to present the first track from the group’s much anticipated new studio double-album ‘Waiting For Miracles’, which will be released on InsideOutMusic on November 8th, 2019. The album is comprised of 15 new tracks, recorded over the summer at RMV studio in Stockholm, Sweden – a vintage studio space owned by ABBA star Benny Andersson.
The band is excited to now share a track from this record: “Here’s ‘Black Flag’. A fine example of what you can expect of the new record, yet just a glimpse at the rich variations this new opus offers. It is a huge tribute to when music was played by a real band, a time when being creative in the studio meant progress in all direction and fusing all styles – this is a band creating its very own special cinematic sound, built upon 60’s & 70’s and contemporary prog, rock and orchestral music. A fine display of instrumental and vocal interplay from all members – the trademark Flower Kings sound is back, but yet with a new twist. Full circle – and this track even has guesting from former TFK bass player Michael Stolt. This time The Kings set sail for a big adventure.”

The Flower Kings started as an outlet for guitarist/singer/composer Roine Stolt in 1994 – a time when prog-rock wasn’t mere history, nor a dirty word. The band quickly gained momentum and was one of a handful of bands helping to revive the progressive rock scene worldwide. Roine has since collaborated with a host of legendary musicians across various projects, including his acclaimed 2015 album with Yes-legend Jon Anderson, progressive-rock supergroup Transatlantic alongside Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy & Pete Trewavas, and a year as bass player with Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett. The Flower Kings however, has always felt like home for Roine and the other band veterans Jonas Reingold & Hasse Fröberg.
It is with great pleasure that today September 15th, 2019 we release our first recording “Nowhere Wolf” by Austin, Texas psychedelic rockers Sheverb. “Nowhere Wolf” is the b-side and the first of two tracks from their upcoming 7″ record due out September 29th, 2019.
PeacockSunrise Records (PSR) is a new chapter and an offshoot label of Melodic Revolution Records. PSR was launched on December 5, 2018; born out of the necessity to explore and release music from new territories, styles, and cultures from around the globe.
We hope that you will join us and embrace our new journey as we continue to present some of the world’s best up and coming artists. PSR has many releases in the works, including a solo album by Allison VonBuelow the voice of Scarlet Hollow; debut full-length release by bassist and composer Joe Macre (formerly of Crack the Sky): Joe Mac’s American Garage, and an exciting new outfit hailing from Port Isabel, Texas – Sun King Rising.
Please help us today as we celebrate our first release “Nowhere Wolf” by Sheverb. We hope that you enjoy this release as much as we do and that you will share this music by telling your friends, family, and co-workers.
Love and respect to all, Nick Katona

It is a sheer pleasure to announce that Thank You Scientist will return to RoSfest on Sunday, May 10th, 2020 as our third headliner since we feel they easily merit this position. The band had a killer performance when they played for us back in 2014 and we know their performance will be even better when they return in 2020.
Following years of delivering one vital album after the other, they are now headlining most of their tours and recently concluding a summer tour with Bent Knee who was opening for them. They are also touring internationally as they recently headlined a mini-tour in England, as well as opening for Coheed & Cambria while playing in the United Kingdom. In short, Thank You Scientist’s brand of eclectic, challenging and dynamic progressive rock is catching on towards an ever-increasing audience. Their most recent album, “Terraformer” (2019), hit the top 10 sales on iTunes earlier this year and they sold more copies of their special advance pre-order version of that album than most progressive rock bands have as total sales of their releases. Thank You Scientist is going places and doing so very quickly which is why they deserved a headlining spot at RoSfest. A festival should always conclude on a high note and with Thank You Scientist, we know that this will indeed be the case for the 2020 edition of RoSfest.
