Prog Rockers THE SLYDE Premiere Full Album Stream “Awakening” via ProgressiveMusicPlanet

Album Release Tour (ON/QC)

New Album “Awakening” Out May 18th

Set to release ten tracks of their intricate, contrapuntal prog rock that they’ve honed over the last decade on May 18, 2018 on their first full length effort titled Awakening to follow their 2017 EP “Back Again”, Toronto melodic proggers THE SLYDE are sharing with fans the full stream of the new album via at the following link:

The band comments:

“We think fans will certainly enjoy this release, and will notice that we’re slowly adding more of an aggressive edge to our songwriting plus incorporating more ‘metal’ elements into the riffs.  ‘Awakening” is less conceptual than previous releases by containing more straight up rockin’ tunes.  Each song stands on its own.”

In true prog fashion, THE SLYDE stays true to their mission statement with their quirky arrangements, aggressive edge, and ominous lyrics.  The result is a thought provoking, high-octane album for fans of Rush, Dream Theater, Haken, Coheed and Cambria, and Megadeth. Driven by Nathan Da Silva’s elegant vocals, Sarah Westbrook’s powering keyboard skills, and the powerful rhythm section of Alberto Campuzano (Warmachine, ex-Annihilator) and Brendan Soares, the band are to catch the ears of any technically minded melodic prog rock fan.

Awakening will be available on BandcampiTunesAmazon and Distrokid here.
