The following news has been posted on the official site of Arjen Anthony Lucassen:

"We're happy to finally announce the European release dates and details of the forthcoming album from Arjen's new project, Guilt Machine! The album, titled "On This Perfect Day," will be released by Mascot records on the following dates:

Germany, Austria, Switzerland: 28 August
Europe: 31 August
USA: Date still pending



The art for the cover (pictured above) and booklet was created by Christophe Dessaigne, a talented new artist whom we discovered (quite by chance) while browsing Flickr. Coincidentally, it turned out that Chris is an Ayreon fan, and was thrilled beyond belief when we asked him to do the artwork. The Guilt Machine logo and packaging layout were created by Thomas Ewerhard.

On This Perfect Day will be released in 3 different editions:

Limited Edition 32-page Digibook (CD + DVD)
Special Edition Digipack 24-page booklet (CD + DVD)

28th of August? A couple of weeks later then Arjen wanted, IIRC, but not too late. Until then, I'll eagerly await those samples due next week.
The covers looks cool too.

Really looking forwards to this, Jasper Steverlinck is an amazing vocalist, I wonder what he can do when he's teamed up with Arjen...

I'm also wondering if the album title and perhaps some of the songs/lyrics have been inspired by the book "This Perfect Day" (good book by the way, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Perfect_Day). Would be quite like Arjen after all.

It's going to be so awesome

It would be quite unlike Arjen because as far as I remember he told he usually doesn't read books. That's why Star One was based mostly on sci-fi movies and not books.

Oh, I didn't know that
I was thinking that the story of the book is something he'd probably like, but in that case I suppose he hasn't read it

The Artwork looks nice, and the tracklist too, but each song is very long...

I'd say that's a good thing!

The artwork looks amazing! Really looking forward to this one!

Guilt Machine, Arjen Anthony Lucassen's new project. That looks exciting! I will have to check out Guilt Machine. I have a profound respect for Arjen Lucassen; he is a great leader.
