On behalf of the family and our own we would like to thank everyone for the support and your presence in those difficult moments. Piotr passed away unexpectedly of natural causes (sudden cardiac arrest) on Sunday morning (21st February). We have remained with emptiness and open wounds which need time to heal. For obvious reasons we have decided to cancel all concerts confirmed for this year. At the same time we would like to inform you that we are going to carry out this year releases scheduled for late spring and autumn 2016.
In our deepest pain and disbelief we would like to inform you that our dearest friend and brother Piotr Grudzinski has passed away this morning. We kindly ask you to respect the privacy of his family and friends.
Hello Everybody! This year we are starting with the new, remixed version of '
', and this is just the beginning of surprises we have prepared for you in 2016. We have planned new releases, another videoclip, but first of all - the new gigs. At the very beginning of April we are starting another tour during which we will play songs from the new album and... something old.
Stay with us for more!

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.”
"Recordings are going really well. We are almost at the end. We are happy with how the new compositions are turning out. Believe it or not but this might become the RIVERSIDE album you have been waiting for."

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.
"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…
