The Flower Kings Return After a Five-Year Hiatus

THE FLOWER KINGS – the iconic progressive, symphonic rock band formed in 1995 by guitarist/singer/composer Roine Stolt [Transatlantic] – announce their immediate return to service after a five year hiatus.

The band – Roine Stolt, bassist Jonas Reingold, keyboardist Tomas Bodin, singer/guitarist Hasse Froberg and newcomer Felix Lehrmann, a 26 year-old drumming prodigiy from Germany – began recording a new album at Sweden’s Varispeed studios on January 23. The music is being recorded in classic ’70s style, with all musicians performing live in a room through vintage ’70s tube recording equipment and NEVE consoles.

If all muses permit, the new TFK is scheduled for a June release via InsideOut Music (Century Media/EMI). The yet-to-be-named album has an epic 23-minute centerpiece and is in classic Flower Kings style – complete with all the dreamy melodic and cinematic elements that fans have come to love over the years, while also containing some heavier psychedelic music and darker, high-energy material.

The band hopes to embark on a headlining European tour in September, but will perform its first official reunion gig at the Sweden Rock Festival in June 2012.
