After announcing that an instrumental album is in the works, Polish progressive masterminds Riverside will soon release their official biography! The news was announced a few days ago on their Facebook page in Polish. The biography will be written by Maurice Nowakowski, and will be titled "Sen w Wysokiej Rozdzielczości" ("A Dream In High Definition"). There is no precise release date for the biography, but the band wrote that it will be published at the end of the year.
Riverside are going through a decidedly dark and difficult time after the unexpected and sudden passing of guitarist Piotr Grudziński, but remain determined to release the album they've had their minds set on for a while. The as yet untitled release will bring to the forefront a sound that has thus far only been complementary to larger releases, finding its way onto bonus discs. The band, since its inception, has been experimenting with this type of ambient and progressive electronic music and has accumulated a lot of material they wish to dedicate to Piotr and share with their listeners before the year's out.
Understandably, Riverside have decided to cancel all of their scheduled shows for this year, following the passing of guitarist Piotr Grudzinski due to a cardiac arrest, as just revealed by the prog group. They were set to embark on a Polish tour in April and play at some festivals as well. This is a difficult time for the band but they will still go on with their planned releases for this year. If they will continue as a band after that, only time will tell.
