AYREON: New Single To Arrive In July

AYREON, the brainchild of Dutch guitarist Arjen Lucassen (ex-BODINE, VENGEANCE), will be releasing an alternative version of the song "Day Sixteen: Loser", simply called "Loser", as the next single from their "Ayreon: The Human Equation" CD.

"In this version Joost van den Broek (ex-SUN CAGED, AFTER FOREVER) and Arjen Lucassen battle it out in a true-to-form keyboard vs. guitar duel with electric violin from Robert Baba thrown in for good measure," reads a post on AYREON's web site. "Also Peter Vink (STAR ONE) recorded all new bass guitar especially for the single. And Ed Warby added some extra 'zing' to his performance also."

Single track listing:

01. Loser (Star One Version)
02. How You Gonna See Me Now (ALICE COOPER cover by Mike Baker and Arjen Lucassen)
03. Into the Black Hole (recorded live at "Stairway to Heaven" Pre-release party April 18, 2004)
04. Castle Hall (special acoustic version feat. Ewa Albering on flute and Dewi Kerstens on cello, vocals by Irene Jansen)

The "Loser" single is scheduled for release on July 19.
