Love, Fear and the Time Machine - release date and tracklist
Love, Fear and the Time Machine", the band’s sixth studio longplay album will be released via Inside Out Music and Mystic Production on September 4th, 2015, feature cover artwork by longtime design-partner Travis Smith / Seempieces (Katatonia, Opeth, etc.) and contain the following track listing:

RIVERSIDE – “Love, Fear and the Time Machine”
1. Lost (Why Should I Be Frightened By a Hat?)
2. Under the Pillow
3. #‎Addicted‬
4. Caterpillar and the Barbed Wire
5. Saturate Me
6. Afloat
7. Discard Your Fear
8. Towards the Blue Horizon
9. Time Travellers
10. Found (The Unexpected Flaw of Searching)

RIVERSIDE are additionally working on a musical bonus package entitled “Day Session”, the brighter companion of the “Night Session” presented on the band’s previous album “Shrine Of New Generation Slaves”.

RIVERSIDE’s Mariusz Duda checked in with the following comment about “Love, Fear and the Time Machine": “On the new album I wanted to combine the 70s and the 80s. The 80s were a decade of musical growing up for me. We don't sound as retro and 70s as before, we moved forward, we sort of demolished the previous foundations and build new ones. Despite the huge dose of melancholy and nostalgia, there is a new space, the songs are arranged with more flow and at the same time they have never been so concise and to the point before. The lyrics on "Love, Fear and the Time Machine" talk about a transformation. About making an important, perhaps life changing, decision everyone has to make at some point in their lives. What happens to us when we have to make it? On the one hand we're excited by the change, we feel free, liberated, and on the other we fear the unknown, we are afraid of what might happen to us. We go back in time and we go forward in time in our heads. And all that happens when we have to decide something important. The first of the songs on the album is called 'Lost', the last one, 'Found'. If we sometimes get lost in life, it is to go through something and be found again on the other side, to be reborn as someone better and more valuable. I would like this album to be one of those that one day simply becomes your best friend.

Riverside are entering the studio to record their sixth album "Love, Fear and the Time Machine"

Riverside are entering the studio to record their sixth album
This week Riverside are entering the studio to start recording their sixth album called "Love, Fear and the Time Machine". The material was composed in the autumn of 2014 and the band have been rehearsing it for the last two months. From March until May Riverside will be locked up in Serakos studio in Warsaw, the same studio where they recorded among others their most recent, very well received album "Shrine of New Generation Slaves". The release date of the new album has been planned for the beginning of September 2015.

It will be possible to follow the progress of our work on a special Instagram profile: www.instagram.com/riversideband.pl

Love, Fear and the Time Machine

2015-01-15

Love, Fear and the Time Machine
"Love, Fear and the Time Machine" - this is the title of the sixth Riverside album. The band has just finished composing the new material.

"Our sixth album, six words in the title, sixty minutes of new music, that's about how long the new release will be. And we won't be playing hard rock anymore", Mariusz Duda laughs. "There will be many more melodies dressed in completely different shades. We're changing and evolving as a band, we're growing up but most of all we want to keep recording different albums which are simply great to listen to. And the new one will be like a deep breath of fresh air, very different to what we'd done before."

"Love, fear and the times that have shaped us have the biggest influence on our life choices. The lyrics will be about everything that pushes us to make the most important decisions in our life."

The band is going to start recording the new material in March and it will be possible to follow the progress of their work on a special Instagram profile (www.instagram.com/riversideband.pl). The album will be released in August/September 2015 and some of the new songs will be played at this year's summer festivals. More information will follow soon…

Work in progress

2014-12-13

Work in progress

After two months of composing we've got 48 minutes of brand new music. For now IT"S JUST A DEMO material. We're entering the studio in March 2015 but we already know what we'll be working on :)

Walking on a Flashlight Beam out on 13th October!

2014-10-01

The new Lunatic Soul (Mariusz Duda solo) will be called “Walking on a Flashlight Beam” and will comprise almost 64 minutes of brand new music. Out on 13th October. Check out the new amazing video!

Mariusz Duda: "Walking On A Flashlight Beam" - the title indicates living in a world of imagination, in a place that's made up and unreal. You can have your head in the clouds, you can chase after rainbows so you can walk on a flashlight beam too. It's a story about choosing to be alone, inspired by the life of people who were completely alienated and withdrawn from social life, who shunned all interactions with the outside world. It's about people who, even on a bright and sunny day, have the curtains drawn and the blinds closed in their rooms. Such people are usually surrounded by books, films, games, figments of other people's imagination. I've written about solitude and living in a world of fiction before in Riverside's lyrics but now I've decided to write a whole album about it.

The new Lunatic Soul album preview is here!
Mariusz Duda - the man behind Lunatic Soul - is finishing the recording process of his new album. Here is an exclusive preview of the upcoming release:

"It will be slightly different - less oriental, more... alternative. Truth be told, it's going to be a massive dose of trance darkness but I think it will also be much more musically varied than the previous albums. It will definitely be very emotional, because I would like the music of Lunatic Soul to be most of all the music for souls - those a bit more and those a bit less... lunatic."

The new Lunatic Soul album is scheduled to be released in October 2014 on Kscope (worldwide) and Mystic Production (in Poland).

The band has checked in to comment about the upcoming dates as follows:
As you already know, in April we're giving the last 2014 club shows and at the same time ending our adventure with the "Shrine of New Generation Slaves" promotion. The important thing to know for all of those who saw us last year is that - yes, we will change the setlist. Yes, the shows are going to be a bit different - for sure there'll be stuff we didn't play in 2013 and some of the songs will be arranged differently. After the April tour we're planning a longer break to enter the studio and work on our 6th full album. But before that happens, we want to come together with the best audience in the world.
See you soon!”

LP3

We're pleased to announce that "The Depth of Self-Delusion" reached the second position at the ANNUAL Top Chart of Polish Radio 3. If it's the annual top chart then it can't be a fortuity, and it's an honour to find ourselves between Depeche Mode and Black Sabbath.

By the way, our third single "We Got Used To Us" reached the 39th position. Thanks everyone for your votes and support!

Lunatic Soul - new album in 2014!

2013-12-19

Mariusz Duda is beginning to work on his Lunatic Soul's next album. The recordings are taking place in the Serakos studio, the same one in which the latest Riverside album "Shrine of New Generation Slaves" was recorded.

I've been working with Magda and Robert for so many years now that we have become one organism. I can't imagine a different place for my new sound ideas," says Mariusz Duda. "Everything is already composed. I've been working on it for the last two months and, from now through the beginning of the New Year, then later, during the breaks between the Riverside concerts, I will record all the new ideas as best I can."

Lunatic Soul - official has already released three albums -"Lunatic Soul" (2008), "Lunatic Soul II” (2010), and the instrumental "Impressions” (2011).

"I realize that, for some, this will be the fourth album but for others, only the third because "Impressions" was actually a supplement to the first two. Still others view the first two, the Black and White continuing interwoven story so they will consider this new one to be only... the second album :)) Now, I'll go in a different direction...a bit less oriental and more...alternative. Actually, it seems like it will be a huge dose of trance darkness. I think it is much more versatile music than before. It's also going to be more emotive than ever...I've always wanted Lunatic Soul to be, first and foremost, music for the Souls whether they be Lunatic or not."

The new Lunatic Soul - official album will be released in autumn 2014.
