THE FLOWER KINGS - preorder Banks Of Eden + Tour info

The Flower Kings are back with a new album called "Banks of Eden" and it's the result of work in progress since December 2011. The updated version of the band showcases the classic lineup of Stolt, Bodin, Reingold and Froberg with the addition of new German prodigy powerhouse drummer Felix Lehrmann.

Pre-Order Now at:

The new album "Banks Of Eden" was recorded with the band playing live in one room in Varispeed studio in January 2012, a recording much like in the old days of classic prog, before computers hit the market and this time with plenty of original 60's and 70's recording equipment, for a true warm analogue vintage sound. "We aimed for the classic big warm vinyl-sound of old records by Queen, Genesis, Zeppelin or Deep Purple," says Stolt.

The album will come as : Jewelcase standard (1 CD) - Digibook (2 CD) - Vinyl gatefold ( 2x LP + 2 x CD)
