Progressive Rock masters RIVERSIDE are starting their European tour next week and have now checked in with the following comment:
In a week we’re starting the final leg of “Towards The Blue Horizon Tour 2017”, the tour with which RIVERSIDE came back to life on stage. Two sold out concerts in February in Progresja, Warsaw, and the exceptional welcome and crowds at the April and May concerts in Poland and Europe, made us regain strength and faith in the future. Thank you all very much for allowing us to come back.
After the holiday break and a few summer festivals, we will go back to playing in clubs. We will perform the final 13 concerts in the places we haven’t yet visited this year. Please forgive us for not being able to go everywhere, we promise to make it up in the future.
We have been joined on guitar by Maciej Meller who has approached Piotr’s guitar parts with huge respect, retaining the atmosphere and character of our music. We hope that the two-hour evenings with RIVERSIDE music will make all of us feel that we are taking part in an important event and this year will be remembered as the good one.
See you very soon!

RIVERSIDE have recently announced guitarist Maciej Meller to complete the band’s line-up for shows after taking a longer break from any live performances due to the tragic passing of founding member and guitarist Piotr Grudzinski on February 21st, 2016.
Last October RIVERSIDE released a complementary instrumental album entitled “Eye Of The Soundscape”, including 13 experimental and highly atmospheric compositions, which showcase RIVERSIDE’s ambient electronic side. The release entered the sales charts in various European countries as follows: Germany # 69, Switzerland # 92, The Netherlands # 60, Belgium (Flemish) # 122, Belgium (Wallonia) # 112 and Poland # 4.
“Eye Of The Soundscape” compiles all the special instrumental RIVERSIDE tracks previously used as bonus material for the “Shrine Of New Generation Slaves” and “Love, Fear And The Time Machine” albums, alongside rare cuts as well as 4 new songs (“Where The River Flows”, “Shine”, “Sleepwalkers” and “Eye Of The Soundscape”) into a massive playing time of +100 minutes, available as 2CD-Mediabook, 3LP (With both CD’s as bonus and an etching on Side F!) or as Digital Download.
A video clip for the track “Shine” can be seen here:
