Re: Beardfish to play on Progressive Nation 2009 North American Tour

Totally awesome, I've been following this band since they did tiny gigs in Gävle, so it's great that they're getting successful. ^^ The rest of the bands are also great, so I really would have liked to be there. =/


Hey, watch my videos, some are quite prog:ish: http://www.youtube.com/user/Freddie25

Congrats to the band! Can't travel to the US, but I hope to see the band in Europe this summer instead.

Re: Beardfish to play on Progressive Nation 2009 North American Tour

I know the dates will be released soon but are you stopping by western canada?

Basically I was incredibly psyched to see y'all play on the melloboat, I went last year and it was amazing, then this year you and black bonzo were playing (the two active bands I wanna see live most).  But then it was canceled which blows and this is like a redemption.

Will you guys be meeting the fans (me) after your set?  Would love to shoot the shit over some chimay.

Re: Beardfish to play on Progressive Nation 2009 North American Tour

New information is that Beardfish (and Pain Of Salvation) had to cancel their gigs...

"Progressive Nation 2009 North American Tour - Lineup Change


For Immediate Release
June 22nd, 2009



It is with the utmost disappointment that I am forced to share the unfortunate news of both Pain Of Salvation and Beardfish having to pull out of this summer's Progressive Nation tour....

Their label Inside Out just recently lost the financial funding for the tour as a result of their distributor SPV recently claiming bankruptcy...which effectively meant that both Pain Of Salvation and Beardfish lost the tour support that was essential to their ability to come to North America for Progressive Nation.

All parties involved (myself, both bands, Inside Out, etc) are beyond devastated at this turn of events and are truly sorry to all of the fans that were looking forward to this lineup. We tried everything we could do to salvage the situation, but in the end it was not possible...

Well as the album title says, every Black Cloud does indeed have a Silver Lining....so with this unfortunate news, I bring to you the good news of 2 incredible bands that will jumping on board Progressive Nation to join Dream Theater and Zappa Plays Zappa this summer: Bigelf and Scale The Summit.

Los Angeles' Bigelf are my personal favorite new band to come along in many years...their latest CD "Cheat The Gallows" is my favorite album of the year and I already had positioned them onto the European run of Progressive Nation in the Fall....with them now joining us on PN09 in North America as well, it looks like world domination is now not that far out of reach for them!
Pretty soon, everyone will hopefully be falling for their retro, psychedelic, progressive, hard rock, doom metal as hard as I have!

Houston instrumental band Scale The Summit are a recent discovery for me and their top notch musicianship will be a perfect fit to this Progressive Nation lineup stylistically falling very nicely between the musicality of Dream Theater and Zappa Plays Zappa. They bring the instrumental elements of prog rock and fusion into today's contemporary hard rock/metal sounds and are one of the most talented group of young musicians I've seen assembled in many years.

Once again, apologies to anybody disappointed in this unexpected and unavoidable lineup change...but the circumstances were beyond our control...
In any event, PN09 will carry on and still deliver the most musical bang for its buck this summer throughout North America and we look forward to sharing the evening with you!

Sincerely,
Your Progressive Rock Ambassador,
Mike Portnoy"

Re: Beardfish to play on Progressive Nation 2009 North American Tour

Whoah... I was just coming off the high of seeing the NEARfest show, and I found this forum... and now this news! I was hoping it was April fool's day or something, but no. I am very sad, I am sure the bands are also very disappointed!

I don't even know what to say!
