Vinyl Alert! Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius Offer Pre-Order Special for Guilty of Innocence LP



Melodic Revolution Records is pleased to announce that Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius will release the LP of their highly acclaimed fifth album “Guilty of Innocence” a year after the official CD release via Melodic Revolution Records. The 10-track vinyl LP will include a download card of the album, alongside the already released CD and Digital album.

As with the previous CD & Digital version “Guilty of Innocence” features special appearances by Alex Skolnick(Testament), Rave Tesar(Renaissance) and Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance, The Fringe).

“Guilty of Innocence” highlights include the hit singles “Behind the Curtain,” a reimagined cover of muse’s “Hysteria,” and the 12-minute prog mini-epic titled “Soul Food” which features many of the guests mentioned above, plus “Dream Diary Cadenza,” a solo electric violin extravaganza lifted from Joe’s electric violin concerto.

Stratospheerius is led by founding member, electric violinist & vocalist Joe Deninzon who has been called the “Jimi Hendrix of the electric violin.” “Guilty of Innocence” features French guitarist Aurelien Budynek(Cindy Blackman, Vernon Reid), bassist Jamie Bishop(The Syn, Francis Dunnery), and drummer Lucianna Padmore, praised by Modern Drummer Magazine for her “Deep grooves and serious fusion chops.”

Joe says it was the progressive rock community that urged him to “go Vinyl” with his album, which hit #4 on the RELIX/JamBand charts, “‘Guilty of Innocence’ was a watershed moment for Stratospheerius this past year. After years of touring and putting out CDs, I saw this record embraced by the progressive rock community on a bigger scale than any of our previous releases. In our touring and festival appearances alongside other artists in the prog world, I noticed more and more artists are manufacturing vinyl, and in many cases, they outsell their CDs at live shows. I believe the resurgent interest in vinyl has to do with the fact that in the digital age, we consume music on the go in a condensed mp3/streaming format. There is a hunger to hold something tangible in our hands, admire the artwork on a record, and have the home listening experience be something special. We are excited to join the growing community of artists putting out vinyl and hope our fans will buy the record and rediscover it (or DISCOVER it)”!

In addition to hitting the top 5 on the U.S. JamBand radio charts, the band:
-Music Video “Behind the Curtain” has been seen by over 35,000 people on youtube (as of this week), and found its way to Europe’s indie music charts. (The band starts a European promo campaign this week.)
-Playing major prog festivals. Coming up: ProgStock this Oct. 6 in Rahway, New Jersey.
-Exciting opening slots, which—this year—included John5, Gary Hoey, and Alex Skolnick Trio.

What the critics are saying:

“Joe Deninzon has made a career…wielding his violin like a guitar. In that way, he has pioneered a new standard for rock violin, much the same way Ian Anderson did for flute.”
– PROGRESSION MAGAZINE

This is infectious, with no cure in sight. The arrangements are tight, everyone bounces off each other, and is one of the most poptastic progressive album one is likely to come across
5/5 Kev Rowland // Prog Archives

One of the perks of being a reviewer is that on some days you get the pleasure of getting introduced to some music or bands you never heard of but are actually quite good. Or in the case of Joe Deninzon And Stratospheerius, really good!
9/10 Arno Agterberg // DPRP

Joe Deninzon’s music is always both entertaining and creative. I have to say that this might very well be the best Stratospheerius album.
Gary Hill // Music Street Journal

The album comes with plenty of Progressive Rock tracks, it’s the other songs containing other styles that help to make the release even more entertaining. If you happen to be a fan of Progressive Rock, the new album of Guilty of Innocence album from Joe Deninzon and the band Stratospheerius is one album you need to check out.
