"KARMAKANIC & SOUND OF CONTACT join THE FLOWER KINGS on the European spring tour 2014.
"Due to the recent medical condition of singer/frontman Daniel Gildenlöw of PAIN OF SALVATION,
he has to stay home for yet some time, hospitalized, supervised and sedated. ( send him your prayers and love )
Daniel will be taken to surgery on March 17th after a nasty and serious attack from non-prog-loving-flesh-eating-bacteria
earlier this year. The situation is serious but no longer lifethreatening.
We've all been waiting to see the light of this tunnel - hoping that he could still join us for the Flower Kings tour this spring
but fate had other plans for your favourite singer.
We've searched for a worthy replacement - someone or something that may fill the void and we hope that you will be equally thrilled to see our friends in KARMAKANIC and for the last week of the tour new sensation SOUND OF CONTACT.
KARMAKANIC should be a familiar name to all of you in Flower Kings land - Sound Of Contact is a new prog band fronted
by Simon Collins - The band play a modern and dense,textured music - epic and bordering to both Marillion,Porcupine Tree and late 70's Genesis. No surprise as Simon is the son of Phil Collins - drummer, writer & singer too. "Like father like son…."
As much as we will miss Daniel we hope this will all cheer you up - for those who have tickets we ask your understanding and for those who have not yet - we assure you this will be - what we hope - another great double bill - as we still swirl from the Flower Kings & Neal Morse
Band combo tour last year."
