Fan-filmed video footage of EPICA's September 1 performance at Metropolis in Montreal, Quebec, Canada can be seen below.EPICA has just launched the North American leg of "The Ultimate Principle" tour with support from LACUNA COIL. EPICA's new EP, "The Solace System", was released on September 1 via Nuclear Blast. With their latest masterpiece, EPICA set new standards. 2016's "The Holographic Principle" is the most epochal, multi-layered, courageous and successful record of the band, reaching Top 10 chart position entries in the German, Dutch and Swiss album charts. Accordingly, all the tracks written for the album process are high quality, but not all songs have been put on the album. "This is only based on the fact that the record should not exceed seventy-six minutes," explained guitarist/vocalist Mark Jansen. Since the band didn't like the idea of a double CD, they finally decided to release an EP with six brand-new numbers, which were created during the creative phase of "The Holographic Principle". "The Solace System" was recorded, mixed and mastered by Joost van den Broek and Jacob Hansen. EPICA vocalist Simone Simons commented on the EP: "During the early writing process of 'The Holographic Principle', we found out that we were blessed with a huge amount of songs. The songs that didn't fit on our album are now available for you on this special EP! I hope you guys will enjoy these songs as much as we do!"
