The Lasers Edge
Leading American progressive label collective, Laser’s Edge Group, has completed a deal with long-running Detroit progressive hard rock quartet, TILES, for the upcoming release of the band’s mighty sixth studio full-length, the 2xCD Pretending To Run.
Freak Kitchen recently teamed up with award-winning comic book artist, and former Disney animator, Juanjo Guarnido to produce this amazing music video. Best know for work on comic book series Blacksad and Disney movies, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tarzan and Atlantis, Guarnido applied his signature style to this animated classic, and its been whipping up a storm.
THE CUSTODIAN, the U.K.'s newest and most exciting progressive rock band, will release its debut album, "Necessary Wasted Time", on June 18 via The Laser's Edge.
The band is lead by British musician Richard Thomson, better known as the vocalist of progressive metal group XERATH. The project was initially started in a bedroom in Warwickshire and has now, after several years of lying dormant due to other commitments, become a fully fledged band ready to take the prog rock world by storm.

Liquid Landscape from The Netherlands has been a live act for several years and shared the stage with bands like Karnivool (AUS), Anathema (UK),Thrice (US) and Riverside (Poland).
Washed up, tired and staggering across a beach in the early hours of the morning. Somewhere in the twilight between desperation and surrender, there is still a glimmer of hope. That sense that everything will be alright, no matter what the odds are. This is what A Liquid Landscape sounds like.
"Nightlight Express" Track Listing:
Norwegian prog rockers WHITE WILLOW have returned with "Terminal Twilight", the band's sixth album. It is both a departure and a continuation in terms of WHITE WILLOW's discography. The renewed emphasis on acoustic guitars and pastoral sections, the somewhat gothic, mysterious atmosphere, are all hallmarks of a sort of a "classic" WHITE WILLOW sound. On the other hand, there is an added element of experimentation and playfulness, and a more daring approach to harmonics that takes the band several leaps forward.
Poland's progressive rock band superforce, RIVERSIDE, have signed with The Laser's Edge Records for the North American release of their upcoming mini-album, being released in celebration of the band's 10th anniversary!
