The Flower Kings has returned to service this year with a brand new “raved about” studio album “Banks of Eden” and will grace Europe with a 30 dates tour to celebrate the new album and the legacy of the band’s 18 year history.

Band lineup is longtime members: Tomas Bodin – keyboards, Jonas Reingold – bass & vocals, Hasse Froberg – vocals & guitar, Roine Stolt – guitar & vocal and Felix Lehrmann – drums.

This re-union show promise to be a colorful show with a stage set in the post-psychedelia Tim Burton surrealism realm – aided with projections by longtime collaborator Per Nordin. The setlist will revolve around the new album, but will surely revisit old fan favourites with a new pounding vital energy that the 27 year old drummer can infuse – “We’re not too old to prog – we’re just too stupid to know when to stop – and that’s a good thing, because we’ve never sounded better, never sounded as heavy and energetic – never felt so orange in our twisted souls – never had so much wattage to blast those poor prog anoraks – we’re thrilled to go out with a bang this time we’ve grown our beards – we’re mean & lean and we take no prisoners”.

We urge all who visit one of these concerts to dress in orange.
