Riverside have announced that they will be releasing their new concept album which will be called "Wasteland" and is scheduled to hit stores on September 28th.

The new studio effort will be the band's first release since the death of Piotr Grudzi?ski in 2016. Mariusz Duda had the following to say about the forthcoming record:

"I'd been thinking about exploring 'post-apocalyptic' regions for a long time. I read books, watched films, played video games, all connected by stories about an attempt to survive in a world that had just ended. But writing such a story myself didn't make much sense until now.

"Riverside are starting a new chapter and after our recent experiences, a story like that has gained more meaning. Wasteland is mostly about what's happening in the world these days but it also makes a reference to the tragedy that befell the band in 2016.

"Musically, we've returned to darker sounds but we have also turned a new page and recorded the album in a different style. It's still Riverside but expressed in a much deeper and more mature way.

"Most artists say the same thing while promoting their new releases: that they have just created their best work to date. I won't say that because everything we have done so far has been consistently very good and unique. But I will say that we have never had such an incredible emotional load on any of our previous releases, and it's not likely that we will ever make such a charged album again.

"Wasteland is an epic, multidimensional, poetic and very deep album. Perhaps of the once in a lifetime kind."
