PROGRESSIVE ROCKERS RPWL CELEBRATE THEIR TENTH ANNIVERSARY WITH THE RELEASE OF THE CAREER-SPANNING RETROSPECTIVE THE GENTLE ART OF MUSIC JUNE 22nd


DOWNLOAD YOUR REVIEW COPY AT THE LINKS BELOW:
The year 2000, was a year of great events: the millennium had not turned out to be the end of the world as many had predicted, the Expo in Hamburg opened its gates and one of the most successful bands of the German progressive rock scene, RPWL was formed.
 
Ten turbulent years have passed by the Freising-based art rock band that developed from a Pink Floyd cover-band to the progressive rock powerhouse that they are today. Now the time has come for retrospection: and RPWL are doing this with the release of The Gentle Art of Musicon June 22nd in the United States. 
 
10 years of RPWL marks the perfect occasion to celebrate the band's anniversary extensively with all of their friends and fans with many concerts all across Europe. But apart from indulging in memories and partying, RPWL are proud to present their brand new Double CD featuring all of their hits from the last ten years as well as new interpretations of classic RPWL tracks with all new acoustic arrangements.
 
Their unique mix of epic pop, art rock and progressive rock captured audiences right from the start. Thousands of people fell under the spell of Rissetto, Post, Wallner and Lang (RPWL) and followed them to wherever their eight albums took them, including the over 250 shows in more than 15 countries. RPWL quickly became an integral part of the international progressive rock scene. In particular their catchy riffs and socially critical lyrics were met by a great response amongst fans and journalists.
 
It was for this reason that the prog virtuosos did not hesitate to bring their music one step closer to their fans.  In Kattowitz, Poland the long-awaited and long overdue live DVD The RPWL Live Experience was finally recorded and it captured the true essence of RPWL: the interaction of songwriting, impressive visuals and pure playfulness that form an entirely different live experience.
 
Over the course of their ten years RPWL have accomplished many crowning achievements including: the filming of an episode of the German cult music program "Rockpalast", their collaboration with Ex-Genesis and Ex-Stiltskin singer Ray Wilson for their hit-single "Roses" and a chorus of praise from the German magazine "Eclipsed" for their masterpiece "World Through My Eyes".
 
"This year is dedicated to our fans because they deserve the biggest birthday present", says Yogi Lang who can hardly wait to hit the road on RPWL's spectacular anniversary tour.
