1. ProgPower USA & Evergrey announce “Hymns for the Broken” Release Party

    ProgPower USA has announced that it will host an official release party for Evergrey’s “Hymns for the Broken” during the festivities. Fans will be able to hear the new disc in advance of its September 26th release. Promoter, Glenn Harveston, has revealed the following news:

    "I’m thrilled to host Tom Englund & one of the unnamed new members at ProgPower USA XV. There will be a private party for our Gold Badge members & VIPs on Thursday afternoon before our Kick-Off where they will have the chance to listen to the new disc in its entirety. Tom & company will be there for a private meet and greet immediately afterwards. We will then play the entire album for the general public over the course of the main two days of the festival between sets. In addition to a signing session, the band has informed me they will have an extremely limited number of special edition shirts designed specifically for ProgPower USA attendees that will be packaged together with an opportunity to pre-order the new disc. Further details will be announced over the coming weeks.

    Vocalist Tom Englund adds, “We are beyond excited Glenn and AFM Records feel the same urge as us to boost this release. We can’t wait to be among friends to share this beast of an album” - see you - yes, again- in September!”
