To support EPICA on their upcoming tours bringing you their brand new album “The Holographic Principle”, Roland will provide Epica with instruments and other gear which the band will use live on stage and on future studio recordings. Keyboard player Coen Janssen will produce his synth sounds, arrangements and embellishments from the Roland FA-08 Music Workstation, which already appears in the videos for “Universal Death Squad” and “Edge of the Blade”. Guitar players Mark Jansen, Isaac Delahaye and drummer Ariën van Weesenbeek will also be incorporating Roland gear into their setup.

With this partnership, Roland aims to reach out to all metal artists, in order to forge a solid base for more future collaborations in the world of metal. Other projects will be announced as they develop.
