Russian progressive rockers STARSOUP will release sophomore album Castles of Sand digitally on November 20 and on CD December 1 via Metalism Records.
After inspiring debut album Bazaar of Wonders (2013, Sublimity Records), the band took a break due to leader Alexey Markov taking part in his other projects DISTANT SUN (power/thrash metal) and GARAGE DAYZ (Metallica S&M Tribute Show).
But the long wait will be worth it! Castles of Sand is even more eclectic than the debut album with thrash metal, soft rock, progressive, folk and singer-songwriter tracks mixed together. The album will certainly appeal to the fans of QUEENSRYCHE, PAIN OF SALVATION and CIRCLE II CIRCLE.
There will be two versions of the CD available: a standard jewel case with 12-page booklet and a deluxe digipack with 24-page color booklet, a STARSOUP guitar pick, and stickers. The CD versions also include two bonus tracks (“Light Up the Stars” and “Road to Sunset”).
1. The Catcher in the Lie
2. Into the Woods
3. Brother’s Plea
4. Your World Is Dead
5. Rumors of Better Love
7. Winter in Shire
9. The World That Has Moved On
10. Light Up the Stars (CD bonus)
11. Moon on the Shore
12. Road to Sunset (CD bonus)
