4th October 2017
New LIVE record from 70:ies cult band Kaipa Da Capo -
Kaipa were a well know and very prolific touring band in Sweden between 1974-1980.
They recorded 3 highly successful albums for the DECCA label and one for Polar Music (ABBA's label)
Three of the original members Ingemar Bergman,Tomas Eriksson & Roine Stolt have now (2015) teamed up with Michael Stolt - Vocal & guitar and Max Lorentz - Keyboards to form Kaipa Da Capo.
This band released the critically acclaimed brand new studio album "Dårskapens Monotoni" in fall of 2016.
Kaipa Da Capo are now about to release the first real LIVE album in the bands history - recorded at the leg end of a Europan tour February 2017 - For the tour, keyboards man Lalle Larsson is standing in for Max Lorentz who was attacked and injured severely at a show earlier this year.
This show is from February 25th in Stockholm - and also happens to be the birthday of singer Michael Stolt.
The setlist is of course a number of old 70ies classics plus a few tracks from new studioalbum and enhanced with a few improvisations from keyboarder Larsson.
Recorded by Micha Weber and mixed by Roine Stolt.
Our shop will offer signed copies for the first 200 orders.

Ny Liveskiva med kultbandet Kaipa Da Capo - (då) Kaipa spelade under 70 talet in 3 klassiska prog/symfonirockplattor på DECCA labeln och turnerade Skandinavien oavbrutet mellan åren 1974-80.
Tre av originalmedlemmarna har idag satt ihop en grupp som spelar denna 70 tals progrock från dessa album plus från en helt ny kritikerrosad skiva från 2016 (Dårskapens Monotoni).
Under de ‘overksamma' åren har medlemmarna varit verksamma inom musikindustrin, som producenter, drivit inspelningsstudio, radio, och kanske mest aktiv på även det internationella planet är gitarristen Roine Stolt, som varit akitiv och drivande i grupper som Transatlantic, The Flower Kings (med runt 1 miljon skivor sålda) samt nyligen på skiva och turnee med progikonerna Jon Anderson (YES) och Steve Hackett (Genesis).
Kaipa Da Capo släpper nu en Liveskiva från en konsert i Stockholm från 25:e Februari i år.
Inspelningen är avslutningen på en kortare Europaturné och presenterar såväl gamla KAIPA-klassiker från 70 talet samt låtar från det nya studio albumet - även det för tillfället inlånade keyboardisten Lalle Larsson får chansen att brilljera på 2 improviserade sektioner.
Inspelningen är gjord av Micha Weber och mixad av Roine Stolt - slutresultatet är i princip en absolut bild av vad som spelades 25 Februari - dvs. inga fixar eller pålägg.
Första 200 ex. signerade.

Jon Anderson & Roine Stolt team up for 'The Invention Of Knowledge'

17th March 2016
Anderson / Stolt, the brand new duo of legendary Yes vocalist & singer/songwriter Jon Anderson and progressive rock veteran Roine Stolt (The Flower Kings, Transatlantic), have announced the release of their collaborative album 'The Invention Of Knowledge' for 24th June 2016 via InsideOut Music. Jon Anderson had this to say: ".....Music is always the driving force in my life...working with such a wonderful musician as Roine Stolt made the creation of this album very unique,we are very excited with the release of 'Invention of Knowledge'."

Roine Stolt adds: "It is not aiming at being new Yes music; just new music, modern and classical, rock and ethno, tribal and orchestrated, grooving and floating. Hopefully in the true spirit of "progressive" - leaning forward, surprising and also comforting with familiar run-arounds. We've been "inventing" as we go along - Jon is an endless source of new ideas. We've been bouncing ideas back and forth for months and as a result there are probably dozens of versions of these songs. It's been a very interesting and rewarding time and the result is just insanely detailed."

InsideOut label-head Thomas Waber comments: "I have been talking to Jon for ages about making an album of 'Yes music' – as Jon calls it - and Roine seemed like the perfect guy for him to work with. I am really happy that it has finally happened and I am also thrilled with the material they have come up with. I think it will please a lot of fans!"

The idea came to life swiftly off the back of a performance from Roine's band Transatlantic, and Jon Anderson on the Progressive Nation At Sea Cruise in 2014, and was initially instigated by InsideOut Music label boss Thomas Waber. The duo set about crafting new music in the spirit of early epic works such as 'Tales From Topographic Oceans', 'Awaken' & 'Olias Of Sunhillow', but giving it a modern twist. Written & recorded over the course of 1 and a half years, the tracks have been in a state of constant change as Roine and Jon swapped & refined ideas by sending tracks to each other via the internet. In March 2015, an ensemble was put together by Roine to realise the music live in the studio. Joining him there was Tom Brislin (who played on the Yes Symphonic tour) & Lalle Larsson on keys, Jonas Reingold & Michael Stolt on bass and Felix Lehrmann on drums. The sessions were also bolstered by appearances from Daniel Gildenlöw, Nad Sylvan, Anja Obermayer, Maria Rerych and Kristina Westas who all provided backing vocals.

The full track-listing for the album is as follows:
  • Knowing 17:45
  • Everybody Heals 13:20
  • Invention Of Knowledge 23:10
  • Know 11.20

KARMAKANIC & SOUND OF CONTACT join THE FLOWER KINGS on the European spring tour 2014.

11th March 2014
"Due to the recent medical condition of singer/frontman Daniel Gildenlöw of PAIN OF SALVATION, he has to stay home for yet some time, hospitalized, supervised and sedated. (send him your prayers and love) Daniel will be taken to surgery on March 17th after a nasty and serious attack from non-prog-loving-flesh-eating-bacteria earlier this year. The situation is serious but no longer lifethreatening.

We've all been waiting to see the light of this tunnel - hoping that he could still join us for the Flower Kings tour this spring but fate had other plans for your favourite singer.

We've searched for a worthy replacement - someone or something that may fill the void and we think that you will be equally thrilled to see our friends in KARMAKANIC and for the last week of the tour SOUND OF CONTACT.

KARMAKANIC should be a familiar name to all of you in Flower Kings land - Sound Of Contact is a new prog band fronted by Simon Collins - The band play a modern and dense,textured music - epic and bordering to both Marillion, Porcupine Tree and late 70's Genesis. No surprise as Simon is the son of Phil Collins - drummer, writer & singer too. "Like father like son..."

As much as we will miss Daniel we hope this will all cheer you up - for those who have tickets we ask your understanding and for those who have not yet - we assure you this will be - what we hope - another great double bill - as we still swirl from the Flower Kings & Neal Morse Band combo tour last year."

New studio album ‘Desolation Rose' late October!

11th September 2013
Swedish progressive-rock royalty The Flower Kings have had a busy year since regrouping in 2012 for the ‘Banks Of Eden' album, and with a new creative vigor the band are following that with the fantastic new album ‘Desolation Rose' due out on 28th October 2013. The artwork, once again created by Silas Toball, can be viewed above and the band had this to say about the forthcoming release:

"Being somewhat of a political statement, the epic theme of "Desolation Rose" is a logical step in a time where perpetual war, famine, environmental threats, religious conflicts dominate the media and our minds. This is a time to wake up and the music on this album takes you on a journey where you are forced to questions what the mainstream media feed us and to rethink your whole world view on all of the above. This is in many ways a typical Flower Kings album but we have also taken it into another realm where we do take chances and where you may struggle to get into the music - or the lyrics - but trust me when I say that you will be rewarded, as this may be our most involved, important and interesting album ever." (Roine Stolt - Sept 2013)

The track-listing for the album is as follows:
  1. Tower ONE 13:39
  2. Sleeping Bones 04:16
  3. Desolation Road 04:00
  4. White Tuxedos 06:30
  5. The Resurrected Judas 08:24
  6. Silent Masses 06:17
  7. Last Carnivore 04:22
  8. Dark Fascist Skies 06:05
  9. Blood Of Eden 03:12
  10. Silent Graveyards 02:52
Earlier this year, The Flower Kings embarked on a very special tour alongside Neal Morse & Mike Portnoy to celebrate InsideOutMusic's 20th Anniversary, playing to sold out crowds across Europe and the US.

Progressive Nation is hitting the high seas in 2014! Join us in this inaugural sailing from February 18th – 22nd 2014 on the luxurious Norwegian Pearl heading from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay and Freeport, Bahamas. This music festival at sea gives you an experience that a land festival just can't match. In addition to 4 days in the beautiful Caribbean and all the amenities of a cruise ship; you will enjoy music from morning ‘til night with over 40 shows on multiple stages, along with activities, Q&A's, panels and workshops from your favorite artists.

PROGRESSIVE NATION founder Mike Portnoy elaborates:
"In 2008 & 2009, I created a touring package called "Progressive Nation" and with Dream Theater headlining, we did three full tours (two in North America and one in Europe) that showcased a variety of bands that embraced the spirit and musicality of progressive music.

Well after a 5 year hiatus, I have decided to resurrect Progressive Nation and this time we are taking it to the seas!
But rather than a 4 band bill like previous Progressive Nation tours, we have expanded the bill to OVER A DOZEN of today's greatest progressive bands, musicians and artists! (and there may be one or two more still to be confirmed)

Myself and my former DT bandmate Derek Sherinian have teamed up with Sixthman (who have done incredibly successful cruises with Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the annual Kiss Cruise to name a few) as well as our friends at Inside Out Music and look forward to a very successful inaugural launch of PROGRESSIVE NATION AT SEA Feb 18th thru 22nd 2014

We are so excited to take part in this historic maiden voyage and look forward to sharing this one of a kind event with fans from all around the world!"

THE FLOWER KINGS & NEAL MORSE BAND - on tour together in spring 2013!

20th December 2012
To celebrate "INSIDE OUT MUSIC 20 YEARS ANNIVERSARY" Progressive rock superstars NEAL MORSE and ROINE STOLT take both their bands on a world tour together in selected cities, in spring 2013, for an evening of sunny symphonic prog. Two bands will share the stage – THE FLOWER KINGS with epic new album "Banks Of Eden" and NEAL MORSE with his latest top shelf prog-rocking offering "Momentum" - this double bill will offer an evening of some of the best, most energetic and most melodic and vital progressive rock on the planet since the heyday of ELP, Pink Floyd, Yes and Genesis!

With two members of Transatlantic it is not far away to a Transatlantic mini reunion as grand finale!
ROINE comments: "We hope to make every evening special - with jamming and interacting - a modern "The Last Waltz" that can happen with 11 musicians, no egos and 3,5 hours to kill. There were the times of Fillmore East & Fillmore West in the USA in late 60's, it had all these insanely great bills every time, it's rock history and it's been in our system since we were teenagers. With The Flower Kings we have fans seeing 4 or 5 shows of a tour and we want to surprise them too. We love our fans dearly and we even know many of them, not only by face, but by name. Those smiling faces are the true reward and it's like seeing old friends. I know so many fans in Peru, Argentina, Indonesia, Greece, Israel, Brazil, Mexico, Japan, Canada, Finland, Norway etc. want to see a show like this, but for geographic, political or health reasons don't have the chance or funds to get to a show like this. But we want to step into their living rooms and bring this joy to everyone, every age so we are planning to record the show, for a future release. Just having 11 musicians on tour together will be great - the sheer musicality onboard that bus will most likely make it implode. We are all looking forward to this grand adventure in February 2013 and to play together and bring all this talent together for a night to remember."
