Poland's progressive rockers RIVERSIDE have completed their fifth studio album, Shrine Of New Generation Slaves, to be released in North America on February 5th, 2013. Out on longtime record label InsideOut Music, the album will also be available in Europe on January 21st.

Shrine Of New Generation Slaves was recorded at Serakos Studio in Warsaw, Poland, where Reality Dream Trilogy was also tracked. Recorded with Magda Srzednicka and Robert Srzednicki, the album offers nearly an hour of classic Riverside music.

Vocalist Mariusz explains, "In 2012 we've been focusing on the work on the new album, and trying to prove, mostly to ourselves, that we can still surprise with something, and what's most important - create an album that would become our showpiece, music-wise and lyrics-wise. The title might sound a bit intricate, but the acronym will definitely explain what we did with our music this time."

Fans can read about the album's recording process on the band's blog here, and a video interview that was done with the band directly from the studio can be seen below:

Shrine Of New Generation Slaves is the follow-up to the band's 2009 release, Anno Domini High Definition, which entered the Poland charts at #1 and has since hit gold album status. In 2011, RIVERSIDE also released an EP titled Memories In My Head to celebrate the band's 10th anniversary.

Riverside lineup:

Mariusz Duda - vocals, bass guitar, acoustic guitar
Piotr Grudzi - guitars
Piotr Kozieradzki - drums
Micha Apaj - keyboards
