Today The Riven releases their new single Edge Of Time. The bands upcoming same titled debut album will be released 1st of March. The album is now available for pre-order from: http://freighttrain.se. The Riven releases their second single ‘Shadow Man’ from the bands upcoming album set for release on The Sign Records spring 2019.
The Riven is an electrifying powerhouse. Envision Heavy Blues Rock, focusing on big choruses and mean riffs. Progressive, psychedelic and classical musical elements standing side by side with a soulful and vigorous voice. Each song, a chapter, revealing fates and tales from the past and the future. The force is strong in The Riven. Merging influences from a variety of genres. The Riven emerges as a Pure Rock element. The Riven will tour all over Europe up on the release. Tour dates in Sweden, France, Spain and Germany is already confirmed.
In 2018 The Riven went to Madrid, not to spend time under the Spanish sun but rather curled up in the valved cellar studio at Holy Cuervo Studios. In ten days they powered through the record‘s nine songs producing an album that in the words of the drummer Olof Axegärd “Is loud, is rock, is soul, and prog, it has it all!”. The Riven will be releasing their highly anticipated first full length with The Sign Records in the spring of 2019. The first single from the album is called ‘Fortune Teller’. Produced by Ola Ersfjord (Lucifer, Primordial, Dead Lord) the album manages to merge the diverse influences of its four members into a solid unit of Rock and Roll, that will leave no one oblivious.
