Highly-acclaimed progmetal act REDEMPTION got a lot of well-deserved attention for their recent album “Long Night’s Journey Into Day” (2018). It is the first album to feature Tom S. Englund on vocals (charismatic frontman of Swedish dark melodic metal band Evergrey). Led by guitarist Nick van Dyk, the band has established a strong name for itself through its musicianship and live performances since the release of their same-named debut album in 2003.
Now, they signed a deal with AFM Records, and are gonna release a live album “Alive in Color” (as CD/BluRay or CD/DVD), recorded during Redemption’s headlining appearance at the ProgPower USA festival, as well as their forthcoming 8th studio album in the near future.
Nick van Dyk comments:
“We are all tremendously excited about signing a new record deal with AFM. We have of course known of AFM from our beginnings as one of our genre’s most important labels, and with Evergrey on their roster, Tom has first-hand experience with how great they are to work with. Nils and the team at AFM have great enthusiasm, energy, industry expertise and positivity and they are a pleasure to work with. Redemption couldn’t be happier to be part of the AFM family and working to create great music together!“
AFM Records A&R Timo Hoffmann states:
“Redemption are an exceptional band: creative, thoughtful, melodic, progressive and accessible all at the same time. We’re excited to welcome this amazing band that we have held in high regard for many years.”
