Singer Steve Braun on the upcoming trip to the high seas:
“We’re super pumped about heading out on the seas to play this cruise, and it’s super refreshing to know that we’ll finally be warm after all of the shows in the North during the blizzard on our tour with Queensryche. Cabins are still available for the cruise so be sure to grab one so you can thaw out with us. PS, Ernie and I will be wearing Speedos on stage, so you definitely want to be there.”
Conquer (the band’s latest album) hit the shelves to universal critical acclaim in August of 2014 and the band has performed on three continents since then to promote its release. The lead single, “Web Of Lies” spent 6 weeks on the CMJ Hard Top 10. Conquer was produced by guitarist Jon Bodan and Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Gloryhammer), who has mixed all of the band’s releases.
Check out the video for the song “Web of Lies” HERE.
The band recently started pre-production for the follow-up to Conquer and plans to hit the studio in Spring of 2016.
