ELEGY To Tour In 2003

ELEGY frontman Ian Parry has posted the following update regarding the group's toruing plans and the next installment of his CONSORTIUM project:

"Dear ELEGY fans, it has come to the attention of the band that there has been advertisements published in German press stating that ELEGY are playing a tour support with a Spanish band. ELEGY would like to let the fans known that we are not playing live shows in Germany or anywhere else until next year. We do plan on playing the Brave Words festival in June 2002 in Cleveland, Ohio and a number of other shows up to the summer of 2003. If any dates are FINAL we will publish them on our tour dates link [on the official web site].

"At this moment, the following parts for the new CONSORTIUM III album are finished: lead vocals, all keyboard and piano parts from Joshua Dutrieux (ELEGY), bass tracks withJan Bijlsma (CONSORTIUM II, VENGEANCE) and Marcel Van Der Zwam (Ian's colleague from his solo albums). Ian is now busy putting the finishing touches to the backing vocals which he recorded together with guest female singer & Dutch TV actress Ingeborg Wieten. Ingeborg will also do some duet parts for a ballad on the CONSORTIUM III album. As you read this, drums are [being] recorded in Tampa, Florida, performed by KAMELOT drummer Casey Grillo at Casey's Above The C studios. Also appearing alongside Casey completing a fantastic powerful rhythm section is bassist Robert Finan (Robert recorded previously with CONSORTIUM on a LED ZEPPELIN tribute CD and back in '99 on an IRON MAIDEN tribute CD. KAMELOT guitarist Thom Youngblood is scheduled to record some killer guitar tracks and Mike Chlasciak (HALFORD) has already recorded a ripping guest lead solo guitar.

"During January 2003, Ian will continue recording guitars with Stephan Lill (VANDEN PLAS) at Basement Studios where he intends to mix the new CONSORTIUM III album."
