On Wednesday The Flower Kings Reunion Tour and Album Coming was a top story. Here is the recap: (SR) The Flower Kings will be playing their first official reunion gig at the Sweden Rock Festival in June and will be embarking on an extended headline tour across Europe in September.
InsideOut music sent over this news about a new album release: After five years of absence, progressive rock band The Flower Kings will release their new studio album on June 19 in North America and June 18 in Europe. Led by mastermind Roine Stolt [Transatlantic], the new album is called Banks Of Eden.
The material is classic Flower Kings, with all the dreamy, melodic and cinematic elements that fans around the globe have learned to love over the years. However, the 2012 incarnation of the band mixes it up with both psychedelic and darker metal passages that place this album somewhere in between the late 60's proto prog and the new generation of art rock. - more on this story
