HRH Prog which is now in cycle 3 is pleased to announce another batch of bands to be added to an already stellar line up.

 

As you’ve seen in the headline, Lithuanian’s Prog heroes The Skys are in for a very rare UK appearance.

 

Lithuanian rock band The Skys are the leading Lithuanian rock scene band. They are also the most recognized Lithuanian band abroad.

 

The Skys are:

 

Jonas Čiurlionis– vocals and lead guitar

Božena Buinicka – keyboards and vocals

Aleksandr Liutvinskij– rhythm guitar

Justinas Tamaševičius– bass

Ilja Molodcov - drums

 

The band released four albums: “Civilized” (1997), “Dreams” (1999), “Postmodern Game” (2004) and “Colours of the Desert” (2011).

 

The last one featuring:

 

Dave Kilminster (Roger Waters band) – guitar;

John Young (ex-Scorpions, Bonnie Tyler) – keyboards, bac vocs, producer;

Snake Davis (Eurythmics, P.McCartney, Ray Charles, James Brown, etc.) – sax;

Martin Beedle (Cutting Crew, Sarah Brightman, etc) – drums;

Tony Spada (Holding Pattern) – guitar;

Anne Marie Helder (Mostly Autumn, Panic Room) – bac voc.

 

In 2012 The Skys music received TV and radio airplay on hundreds of radio stations across Europe, USA and Canada with interviews in Netherlands, Poland, UK and “album of the week” in Austria, A-listed in Norway, 12 weeks at top 30 charts in Poland.  In 2012 many high quality press articles were published about the band in all the major Lithuanian newspapers. The Skys album reviews showed up in USA, Canada and Europe receiving much kudos.  In 2012 the album was rereleased on Out of the Box Records and in 2013 the album was exclusively rereleased for the German Market via Dr. Music Records

 

In 2012 The Skys got 9 Awards at various Polish Festivals.

In 2011 The Skys signed a publishing contract with Apollo Live.

In 2010 The Skys signed exclusive digital distribution deal with Cinderella Records.

In 2004 The Skys were signed to Sutaras Record label for album “Postmodern Game”.

 

In 2001 The Skys made a musical theatre performance “Civilized” which was presented in one of the biggest theatres in Vilnius – Jaunimo Teatras.

Joining The Skys will be homegrown Prog Metallers Collibus, who are still reaping the rewards from their 2014 release “The False Awakening”.

 

Hailing from the underground Manchester metal scene, Collibus is a five-piece female-fronted progressive metal band of tour-de-force proportions.

 

Having won the 2013 Parliamentary Rock the House Discretionary Metal Award, Collibus made history by becoming the first heavy metal band ever to play a set in the House of Commons; had the music video for their winning track Dead Inside featured on Scuzz; and released their debut album The False Awakening all in a matter of months.

 

The January debut album launch was impressively followed by a quick succession of major festivals snapping up Collibus onto their lineup – with Download Festival, Graspop Metal Meeting, Sonisphere Festival, Wacken Open Air & Bloodstock Open Air all signing the band so far in 2014.

Also joining the guys will be 90’s Prog heroes Jump, the eclectic British rock band formed 1990 in High Wycombe. With twelve studio albums under their belts, the band has a reputation for excellent live shows. More than 1000 concerts have honed their skills and they show no sign of wavering!

Black Peaks ( formerly known as Shrine)

 

A cross between aggressive hardcore, the grandeur of post rock and the atypical characteristics of math rock.

 

BBC RADIO 1 Zane Lowe

"Exceptional - Just exceptional"

 

BBC RADIO 1, Daniel P Carter

"So good."

 

METAL HAMMER

"Three tracks of spasmodic, elastic and intricate prog, from Brighton, that peak with sky-reaching screams and plunge on the minor chord. Primus meets The Ocean in a short, sharp shock of a record."

 

THRASH HITS

"a proggy, math riff-oriented mix of rock and metal that knows how long to linger on the melodies and when to descend into darker, sludgier ways."

And finally added to the line-up the return of our psychedelic Prog Rockers…….

 

The Dream Circuit

 

Born from the ashes of cult band Her Majesty’s Secret Goblin in 2001, The Dream Circuit produced a string of impressive releases before going on hiatus to pursue other projects. In 2009 they returned to work with renowned producer & visual artist Jon Aldersea on creating the perfect mix of crafted visuals & hard-edged post psychedelic rock.

Since then they have self released the well-received album 'Remote Control Your Soul’
