New York based prog band EDENSONG, recently called “a great example of contemporary Progressive Rock” by Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson, is heading out on a North American tour next week with Detroit’s Imminent Sonic Destruction. This will be EDENSONG’s first tour in support of their newest album, the critically acclaimed Years in the Garden of Years(2016, Laser’s Edge).
Ian’s quote, which appears in the News Section of JethroTull.com, is “Edensong are a great example of the contemporary face of Progressive Rock. Detailed and energetic performances with heavy guitars, which give way to subtle blends of dynamic variation.”
Fresh off a successful appearance at ROSfest in Gettysburg, PA on May 7th, the band heads next to the Terra Incognita Festival in Quebec City, QC on May 20 before meeting up with ISD in Toronto on May 22 to kick off the official tour. The two bands join forces with a variety of popular, local support acts, including Half Past Four in Toronto, District 97 in Chicago, and Next to None in New York City.
“Each show is like its own miniature festival,” says guitarist/singer James Byron Schoen. “We’re teaming up with some of our favorite bands in each city we’re stopping. There’s gonna be a ton of variety at these shows so the nights should appeal to fans of progressive rock and metal alike.”
