Swedish progressive metallers EVERGREY have confirmed a world-exclusive performance of their 2001 epic concept album, "In Search Of Truth", in its entirety at the ProgPower USA XII kick-off show on September 15 at the annual progressive and power metal festival held in Atlanta, Georgia.
Commented EVERGREY frontman Tom Englund: "Glenn (Harveston, ProgPower USA festival promoter) asked me for a special show,….what else is new as he always does… hrmpff. So to pay tribute to one of our most loved albums, we decided to celebrate the tenth anniversary of 'In Search Of Truth' by playing the whole damned thing. This will be an exclusive for Atlanta and the ProgPower USA show alone.
"One thing I do need to mention is that the backing tracks for the songs are long gone, BUT we will try to do it justice as well as we can.
"Don't miss this shit as it will be an EPIC milestone....or failure!
"This is Tom signing out from the rehearsing room, trying to learn the damn string-skipping part of 'The Encounter'."
EVERGREY will also perform a U.S. exclusive acoustic show at the Mid-Week Mayhem on September 14 to start the week's festivities.
