James LaBrie

James LaBrie’s new solo album “Impermanent Resonance” is set to be released August 6th in North America and July 29th in Europe via InsideOutMusic. Hear the first single for “Agony” below:

“Impermanent Resonance”was once again conceived with LaBrie‘s songwriting partner for over a dozen years, Matt GuilloryGuillory not only took the leading role in composing the material, he also handled all of the keyboards and background vocals.

The album’s lineup is intact from the previous recording, featuring Marco Sfogli from Italy on guitar, Ray Riendeau (HALFORDMACHINES OF LOVING GRACE) on bass and Swedish drummer Peter Wildoer(DARKANEMAJESTIC), who was a finalist in the DREAM THEATER drum auditions. Additionally, former SOILWORK guitarist Peter Wichers came into the fold to contribute songwriting and studio guitars.

“To me, this album incorporates and continues with the styles and musical direction that we have created with the previous releases,” says James LaBrie. “The difference being that the music on this disc is to me a true telling of the songs evolving and taking on a sense of identity that is every band’s ultimate goal. It is powerful, memorable, hook-driven and above all extremely musical. It shows how the writing and the band itself have matured. I truly feel that this is our quintessential album.”


“Impermanent Resonance” was once again mixed and mastered at Sweden’s Fascination Street recording studios (KREATOROPETH,PARADISE LOSTSYMPHONY X) with Jens Bogren and this time alsoTony Lindgren. Visually, Canadian LaBrie hooked up with Gustavo Sazes (ARCH ENEMYFIREWINDKAMELOT) to capture and translate the album’s atmosphere into the striking artwork.
