DANIEL TOMPKINS ANNOUNCES – RUINS: LIVE EXPERIENCE
Ruins: Live Experience will be streaming globally on Saturday 26 November at 8pm GMT / 3pm EST / 12pm PDT.
In little over a months time, I’ll be broadcasting a full album performance of my 2nd solo record Ruins – brought to you by the producers of TesseracT’s PORTALS – and I’d love you to be there with me.
Let me give you some context of how this came together, who is involved with me and what comes next! In January this year I had the pleasure of playing my first ever live shows as a solo artist around the UK, performing Ruins in full alongside my good friends Amos Williams, Paul Ortiz (Chimp Spanner), Mike Malyan (Monuments) and Pete Skipper (In Colour).
The shows were very well received but as great as it was to be one of the first acts back on the circuit post pandemic, it was short-lived and many people missed the events. There was also a social push to bring the line-up to Europe and the US, which – given circumstances at the time – simply wasn’t possible.
I knew that missing out on the shows would inevitably cause disappointment, and so I decided to mark the occasion by filming a full album performance at Kinetic Group in Corby, UK with help from Richard Oakes (Dark Fable Media) and Tom Campbell (MIRRAD), co-producers of TesseracT’s PORTALS; and so Ruins: Live Experience was born.
I’m so grateful to the guys for helping me bring this event to life on stage and on video, it turned out great and I’m so excited to welcome you to the live stream, where in addition to the performance, we’ll be hosting an after show Q&A with the band.
Paul and I are currently working on the next solo album, which expands even further into the prog metal realm, so this feels like the perfect time to close the chapter on Ruins and to have a wonderful memory to look back on. I really hope you’ll be able to join us all. Until then…
