REDEMPTION Featuring FATES WARNING's RAY ALDER: 'Live From The Pit' Live Album, DVD Due In September

Laser's Edge subsidiary Sensory Records has confirmed the late summer release of the maiden live album from REDEMPTION, the U.S. progressive metal band featuring in its ranks guitarist/songwriter Nick van Dyk and legendary FATES WARNING vocalist Ray Alder.

In 2012, REDEMPTION co-headlined the world-famous ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta, where the band recorded a unique show featuring nearly eighty minutes of material and staged with complementary visuals that drive home the compelling emotional impact of this band. That performance is now being constructed for official worldwide release as "Live From The Pit", to be delivered in a CD/DVD package including additional bonus material, including a 5.1 surround mix and more. From fan favorites such as the never-before-performed "Parker's Eyes" to the crushing emotional weight of "Stronger Than Death", the band's performance captured the special ability of its music to deeply connect with fans. In the words of one concertgoer, REDEMPTION's show "was definitely the most exhausting, personal and emotional musical experience I've ever had."

"Live From The Pit" will be made available via Sensory RecordsREDEMPTION's original label, responsible for their seminal first two albums — on September 16.

01. Intro/Threads

REDEMPTION's fifth studio album, "This Mortal Coil", sold around 1,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at No. 32 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

Released on September 26, 2011 in Europe and October 11, 2011 in North America via InsideOut Music, the follow-up to 2009's "Snowfall On Judgment Day" was recorded and mixed with producer Neil Kernon (QUEENSRCHE, NEVERMORE, DEICIDE). The CD's cover artwork was created by acclaimed artist and longtime band collaborator Travis Smith (OPETH, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, NEVERMORE).
