Hi there,

I originally posted this in the wrong forum section, it really belongs here. So here goes:

RELOCATOR announce special guest Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream Theater, Planet X)
for their self-titled debut album to be released July 4th.


30 April 2008

Get ready to relocate: More than two years in the making, the self-titled RELOCATOR debut album will be available on July 4th. Influenced by both modern and classic artists like UK, Planet X, Rush and Allan Holdsworth, the band have developed their own style and worked hard on making their first CD a memorable debut for all fans of instrumental progressive rock worldwide.

Adding his distinctive keyboard style to the RELOCATOR debut is special guest star Derek Sherinian. Derek played with rock legends Kiss and Alice Cooper even before really stepping into the spotlight during his four years with progressive metal titans Dream Theater. More recently he's become known for a string of exciting solo albums each featuring some of the world's most famous guitarists as well as for his live appearances with the Billy Idol band.

Derek Sherinian plays all keyboard solos on the album and his experience with the self-proclaimed "sickest instrumental band in the world", Planet X, makes his style a perfect fit for the music. Unlike many other guest appearances, his involvement here is not limited to just one track in fact, there is more of his soloing on the RELOCATOR CD than on the last Planet X album "Quantum". The opportunity to stretch out on extended solo sections resulted in some of his finest playing on record. All fans of Derek's style are in for a real treat!

The RELOCATOR CD will be available directly from the band on July 4th with other distribution channels to be announced soon. Until then stay tuned for more preview samples, complete tracks and the odd video!


A short preview medley taken from several songs is now available

All the best,
Michael

It's been a long time coming, but we've finally assembled a new MySpace page for the revived Relocator project (more on the recent developments in our MySpace blog) and for the first time ever we can present you with a FULL TRACK! Just a demo so far, but it features all four musicians who will be playing on the upcoming CD including Derek Sherinian, who contributes a blistering keyboard solo (one of several on the album), Dutch drum phenomenon Frank Tinge behind the kit and myself on bass. Plus of course the man who wrote all the music, played guitar and also took care of the keys - the multi-talented Stefan Artwin. Smile

So check it out and tell us what you think! Smile

The new Relocator MySpace site can be found here:

And btw, for those who can't stomach the MySpace audio quality there's a download link for a 192kbps mp3 of the track, too!
