In February 1992, a group of German kids founded a band that would conquer the hearts of a whole new generation of fans around the globe. Twenty five years on, founding members Tobias Sammet (AVANTASIA), Jens Ludwig and Dirk Sauer, accompanied by Tobias “Eggi” Exxel and Felix Bohnke, can look back at their hugely successful career with shows in more than 40 countries, countless tours across Asia, Australia and America, ten studio albums and top 10 chart entries from all over the world.
To celebrate such an exceptional career with their fans, EDGUY will be releasing a 2-CD/DVD-package called Monuments on July 14th via Nuclear Blast. The album includes 5 brand new songs, a collection of their best tracks over the last 25 years and old rarities that have never been published before. In addition, the DVD includes an entire show from their ‘Hellfire Club’ tour in 2004, as well as the complete collection of their official videos. The limited edition will include an extensive coffee-table book containing material from throughout the entire history of EDGUY.
Tobias Sammet commented on the forthcoming release: “We can’t wait to unleash our monumental anniversary release Monuments this Friday. 22 old classics from all eras of the band, countless pictures of the band’s history, 5 brand new songs written by several band members and a full DVD with a running time of nearly 2.5 hours with a complete live concert of 2004 and all of our official videos. Not to forget some unreleased material. The ultimate package!”
