Relocator announce live replacement for Derek Sherinian

New sextet lineup to headline “Generation Prog” mini-festival

January 15, 2010

One year after the release of their internationally celebrated debut album, Relocator are finally ready to hit the stage. For their headlining performance at the first “Generation Prog live” event in Erlangen, the fusion proggers have assembled an international sextet lineup. The core group featured on the studio album stays intact: Project founders Stefan Artwin (guitar) and Michael Schetter (born Pruchnicki, bass) with Bartek Strycharski (electric violin) plus Frank Tinge from the Netherlands (drums). Joining them is another Dutchman, multi-instrumentalist Meinte Boersma (guitar, percussion), enabling the live band to do the dense arrangements of the album justice.

Newcomer Sergej Schamber takes the place of CD guest star Derek Sherinian

The addition of Sergej Schamber (Ocean Spout) to the live band finally answers an often posed question: “How are they going to play this stuff live without Derek Sherinian?”. The former Dream Theater keyboardist had recorded all the keyboard tracks for the Relocator debut as a special guest star, enabling the project members to wrap up the recording of the album without adding a full-time keyboardist. “Sherinian's ivory work across Relocator provides a mass of musical might”, wrote reviewer Tommy Hash. After the release of the album, Relocator finally found the perfect keyboardist to join them for live gigs. Sergej Schamber's ability to tackle the complex Relocator material and Derek Sherinian's stylish, virtuosic lead work is demonstrated in this video:

The first concert in the “Generation Prog” series will feature Relocator alongside ProgRock Records artist Dante and newcomers Effloresce, who will be previewing material from the upcoming full-length followup to their 2009 debut EP Shades of Fate. This mini-festival will take place at the Omega in Erlangen, Germany, on February 11, 2011.

Actually we're planning something for early September, yeah. Not quite sure where exactly it'll happen (it might end up being one gig in Germany and one in the Netherlands or something like that, I'll keep you updated). :)

Less than two weeks until Generation Prog live! Big smile I'm really excited about this. Our rehearsals have been going great so far and we're preparing a new violin arrangement for one song that will allow Bartek to play on more than just the few spots on the CD when we hit the stage - sounding very promising so far! :)
