Cinematic rockers Earthside will be touring Europe, supporting the mighty VOYAGER as well as appearing at Euroblast festival and ProgPower festival throughout October. They will be joining Voyager on select shows in Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, Belgium, The Netherlands and the UK.
The tour news follows the announcement of the release of their highly anticipated second album, ‘Let the Truth Speak,’ which will be out on 17 November via Music Theories Recordings / Mascot Label Group, worldwide. From the album they have already revealed the official videos for the epic title track Let the Truth Speak, which features TesseracT’s Daniel Tompkins as well as the incredible voice of Gennady Tkachenko-Papiz along with We Who Lament and the multiple film festival shortlisted video for All We Ever Knew And Ever Loved .
Talking about the tour they say, “Earthside is ecstatic to be touring Europe once again, and with familiar nightliner-mates from the last time we were across the pond. Voyager are a legendary bunch of humans whose live show energy has only gotten better and better with each passing year. And it’s probably good for the well-being of all in attendance that Voyager is there to uplift everyone’s spirits after we’ve sunken y’all into existential angst. In all seriousness, it should be a wonderful time, getting to partake in Voyager’s European-wide celebration coming off their well-earned triumphs at Eurovision, and to bask in it all with so many of you who are coming out to share in the joy with us. Cold Night For Alligators are a force as well. Definitely a night to be experienced from beginning-to-end, and we’re honoured to be right in the middle of it!”
8 long years removed from their critically show-stopping entrance – A Dream in Static  – the idealistic thinkers and feelers in Earthside found themselves in a different world entirely … or, perhaps, a world more honest and unhinged than they and many others had bargained for.
“This album almost destroyed our lives and friendships,” keyboardist and co-orchestrator Frank Sacramone confides. “It’s insanity, but it is beautiful.”
“A Dream In Static was more of an *I* album,” reflects guitarist and orchestrator Jamie van Dyck. “Each of us in our own way was engaging topics of self-actualization and the fear of never quite becoming. Let The Truth Speak, however, turns its focus to the *We*. Within months of releasing ADIS, the global landscape had changed to where issues of far more consequence than our own individual dreams coming true were tugging at us. We became far more consumed with the trajectory of humanity as a whole than our own legacies therein.”
All We Ever Knew And Ever Loved features Baard Kolstad [Leprous] and the video won the award for Best Music Video at the United Artist International Film Festival and was selected to be screened at a number of film festivals – Horrorcon UK, UAIFF, Dam Short Film Festival, Animiest, Rhode Island International film festival and more. We Who Lament was released late 2022, featuring Keturah on vocals and is undoubtedly one of the most infectious and immediate songs on the album, but, even as such, it still offers the engrossing sound and eventful songwriting expected of the ever-ambitious act.
The explosive Let the Truth Speak carries a feeling of culmination—the fully unexpected but fittingly show-stopping point of arrival in the album’s tumultuous pursuit of truth. A full string section—an overarching element of the record’s sound—jostles with violent rhythms, eldritch scales, and the unprecedented pairing of Earthside alum and TesseracT frontman Daniel Tompkins’ indomitable vocal dexterity and world-music ace Gennady Tkachenko Papizh’s jaw-dropping vocalizations and cinematic wails. These elements all crescendo to an ending climax that is a unanimous favourite moment of the album for the band.
Earthside are Jamie van Dyck [Guitars, backing vocals, programming, keyboards], Ben Shanbrom [drums, backing vocals], Frank Sacramone [Keyboards, synthesizers, programming, percussion, guitar] and Ryan Griffin [Bass, backing vocals].
