"We're all so pumped for these shows! This new lineup of the band has been a great excuse to re-imagine our set. We're bringing back some old school Edensong classics. We're unveiling some brand new songs! We're also putting a new spin on the YITGOY material that we've been focusing on these past few years. The bands we're playing with are incredible and it's an honor to play with these guys: Ben Levin, the Nightwatch, Stratospheerius and more! These are gonna be great nights of music", says frontman James Byron Schoen.
As a special treat to all fans attending the upcoming shows, Edensong will have an exclusive live album for sale, that will only be available at the gigs. The new live album "YITGOY live at Terra Incognita" features Edensong's complete May 2017 performance of the critically acclaimed concept album "Years in the Garden of Years" at the Terra Incognita festival in Quebec City. This exclusive live album is only available directly from the band at the shows on this tour and includes a digital download of a hi-res video of the entire concert. Quantities are very limited.
Of the exclusive live release James Byron Schoen says "This was a very special performance for the band and I'm thrilled that we were able to capture it in such detail. We've been fortunate enough to play the Terra Incognita festival twice, and while our first performance there is also one of my favorite Edensong gigs, I think that this 2017 performance is really the peak of what we achieved with our 2009-2017 lineup. I didn't know at the time that this would be one of our last shows together, so it's all a bit bittersweet for me. I think we brought a ton of energy and emotional presence and just really enjoyed the moment and the fantastic Quebecois prog audience. For me, it's a very fitting tribute to the end of an Edensong era."
