Bjorn Riis shares new album details and single

Karisma Records Reveals Details of Bjorn Riis upcoming album “A Storm is Coming” and releases new single.

Fans of Atmospheric Prog Rock will have something to look forward to on the 3rd of May. That is the date that Karisma Records will release “A Storm is Coming”, the latest album from BJORN RIIS. BJORN RIIS is also known as the co-founder, songwriter and lead guitarist of the Norwegian Prog Rockers AIRBAG.

As a taster of what’s to come, Karisma Records released “Icarus”, a single from the album. “Icarus” can be streamed or downloaded at their official platforms .

A follow up to 2017’s critically acclaimed “Coming Home” MLP, “A Storm is Coming” will be the third full-length album from Riis, and promises to be heavier, but at the same time more tender, than his previous releases. It is formed of six epic songs, clocking in at 51 minutes, and is built around the central themes of human relations and loss, written as a dialogue between two people.

In addition to Bjørn Riis on vocals, guitars and a wide variety of instruments, the album features performances by Henrik Bergan Fossum (AIRBAG) on drums, Simen Valldal Johannessen (OAK) on keys, Ole Michael Bjørndal on guitar, and Mimmi Tamba on guest vocals.
