    CD/DVD Releases: Alberto Rigoni Releases Teaser Video For "Overloaded"
    Posted by nightowl on Saturday, September 20 @ 19:30:00 PDT (21 reads)
    Album Release News

    Alberto Rigoni has released a video teaser for his upcoming release Overloaded, directed by Gustavo Arteaga. View the video here. Heavier and more progressive than its predecessors, notes the press release, the new album, fully instrumental, is inspired by Alberto's vision of our contemporary society. "I think that everything is going too fast today and one of the reasons is technology: hyper fast communications (mostly through social networks), multitasking activities, tons of information as well as misinformation, products, services... In a couple of words - we are OVERLOADED! The Internet has changed our lives, and even though it is indeed a great tool we have to be careful and use it judiciously. Excessive use may cause several diseases such as stress, depression, and social isolation." explains Alberto.

    Band News (tours, comings/goings, etc)

    On October 14, ECW Press will publish Far And Near: On Days Like These, the new book from Rush drummer Neil Peart. A description of the 312-page hardcover reads as follows: "Whether navigating the backroads of Louisiana or Thuringia, exploring the snowy Quebec woods, or performing onstage at Rush concerts, Neil Peart has stories to tell. His first volume in this series, Far And Away, combined words and images to form an intimate, insightful narrative that won many readers. Now Far And Near brings together reflections from another three years of an artist's life as he celebrates seasons, landscapes, and characters, travels roads and trails, receives honors, climbs mountains, composes and performs music. With passionate insight, wry humor, and an adventurous spirit, once again Peart offers a collection of open letters that take readers on the road, behind the scenes, and into the inner workings of an ever-inquisitive mind. These popular stories, originally posted on Peart's website, are now collected and contextualized with a new introduction and conclusion in this beautifully designed collector's volume."
