We are pleased to announce that US band Cell 15 have signed for the 2018 edition of the Rites of Spring festival, and that they will be the opening band on Saturday May 5th.
Cell 15 started out as the creative vehicle and one-man band side venture of composer and musician Robert Richardson. Richardson is a seasoned hand with vast experience as a live backing musician for many noted artists over the years, and have also been a part of the bands Hybrid Ice and The Badlees. Cell 15 started out in 2014, when Richardson felt the need to create and explore his passion for progressive rock, resulting in the self-released, critically acclaimed debut album "Chapter One".
Since then Richardson have chosen to transform his solo project into a band venture, the current line-up consisting of Richardson himself (vocals, keyboards), former Elephants of Scotland member Dan MacDonald (vocals, bass, Kevin Thomas (drums, vocals) and Shane Jones (guitars). A new studio album is in the pipeline too, and if everything goes according to plan one may reckon that it will be available prior to the coming edition of ROSfest.
We always take care to sign some of the many good homegrown progressive rock artists for ROSfest, and with this band based out of Mechanicsburg, literally based in our backyard, this was a band we knew we had to book. Many are aware of them, and those who aren't can look forward to a fine concert by a high quality local band that know their way around the classic era of progressive rock.
We are excited to announce that US band District 97 will return to ROSfest in 2018! What’s more, they’ll be opening the festival on Friday night.
District 97 was fresh and up and coming when they played for us in 2011, having just recently signed to prestigious progressive rock label The Laser's Edge with one hot album to their name. Since then, the band has released a further two studio albums, as well as a few live albums. They’ve grown in stature precisely as we all hoped they would, and are now firmly established as one of the best contemporary progressive rock bands in the US. As the band is currently working on new material, they may have a new album waiting by the time ROSfest 2018 kicks off!
Renowned for their knack of blending elements from various aspects of progressive rock and progressive metal, District 97 creates captivating and quirky compositions. The distinct way that the group thrives on complexity and sophisticated features, and of course the golden voice of Leslie Hunt, are both trademarks of the band. As the members state themselves: District 97 is undoubtedly the most musically adventurous rock band in the world to feature an American Idol Top 10 Female Finalist.
We are looking forward to seeing District 97 grace our stage at ROSfest again, and we know that the 2018 edition of the Rites of Spring Festival will open in a suitably energetic and progressive manner when this band hits the stage on May 4th, 2018.
