Poland’s progressive rockers RIVERSIDE have released a music video for “Celebrity Touch,” the first single off their highly-anticipated fifth studio album SHRINE OF NEW GENERATION SLAVES.

                      

“‘Celebrity Touch’ reflects the times we live in,” says RIVERSIDE’s Mariusz Duda. “I think everyone has a deep need to feel important somehow, but unfortunately, this need is rarely satisfied. Of course some people do get the chance, mostly people connected with the so-called celebrity world.  This is a story about someone who satisfied this feeling a bit too much and about the band that chose to play away from the galleries with shitty works.”

 

Directed by Mateusz Winkiel of Mania Studio, the video can be seen here:

SHRINE OF NEW GENERATION SLAVES will be available in North America on February 5, 2013 via InsideOut Music.  In support of the album, following a full European tour, RIVERSIDE will be playing a handful of shows in North America with label-mates JOLLY.  A full list of dates can be seen below.

SHRINE OF NEW GENERATION SLAVES was recorded at Serakos studio in Warsaw, Poland — where the Reality Dream trilogy was also tracked — with Magda Srzednicka and Robert Srzednicki.

 

SHRINE OF NEW GENERATION SLAVES is the follow up to the band’s 2009 release Anno Domini High Definition, which entered the Poland charts at #1 and has since hit gold album status. In 2011, RIVERSIDE also released an EP titled Memories In My Head to celebrate the band’s 10th anniversary.
