in association with The Classic Rock Society
are pleased to make their first band announcement for
Progeny 3 – The Return
Firstly, we are very pleased to welcome to the stage RPWL
Hailing from Germany, RPWL formed in 1997 as a Pink Floyd covers band. However, they were always interested in producing their own music and released their debut album ‘God Has Failed’ in 2000. Since then, they have released a further 6 albums and performed concerts and festivals across Europe and in North America, all the while developing their own sound and gaining great reviews. Next year will see the release of their latest studio effort and I know that they will bring great pleasure to you all.
Secondly, we are very excited to present the UK debut of Parzival’s Eye
Parzival’s Eye is the side project of RPWL bass player Chris Postl. They released their debut album ‘Fragments’ in September 2009 to much critical acclaim.
This record is a fantastic mix of progressive rock and mature rock songs, and features the guitar talents of Ian Bairnson (Alan Parson’s Project), along with the vocal talents of two of the best singers in the world of prog rock, Alan Reed (Pallas) and Christina Booth (Magenta).
For this live performance, Chris will be assisted on stage by his RPWL band mates as well as, for the first time, both Alan* and Christina.
I’m sure you will all join us in welcoming them to the Assembly stage with open arms.
*Alan’s appearance may, unfortunately, have to be cancelled at the last moment due to other commitments if the British government decides to hold its general election on Thursday 6th May.
Progeny 3 is a festival of progressive rock music to be staged at the fantastic, 1,000 capacity, Assembly in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England www.leamingtonassembly.com
