D.C. progmeisters  have announced they will release two new albums on Jan. 27, 2015. 'Juggernaut: Alpha' and 'Juggernaut: Omega' will be unleashed via Sumerian Records.

"Given the nature and complexity of the 'Juggernaut' story, we've actually done something different and exciting in regards to the release,” says drummer Matt Halpern.  "'Juggernaut' is a story that is told through our music, and we want our audience to fully digest the whole experience. Because 'Juggernaut' is very detailed and dense in terms of character development, peaks and valleys, climaxes and resolutions we've divided the story and music in two, in the form of two separate albums."

Halpern continues, "'Juggernaut: Alpha,' the first part of the story, focuses on the back story and character development, while part two/album two, 'Juggernaut: Omega,' focuses on some pretty serious and gut-wrenching events, taking you for a thrill ride along the main character's complex journey.  Although the albums are split in two physically, the story is only complete when the albums are digested consecutively, allowing the listener to recognize and hear the lyrical and musical overlapping themes, foreshadowing, and connected ideas.”

Guitarist Misha Mansoor says, “This is new ground and it’s exciting It's a way to shake things up. Everyone contributed to everything, even if it wasn't his instrument. It wasn’t about confrontation. Everyone was focused on creating a really cool album.”

A couple weeks before the album drops, the band will embark on a tour with Nothing More, Wovenwar and Thank You Scientist. It kicks off Jan. 10 in Carrboro, N.C. (dates below). Tickets are on-sale Nov. 7 with VIP packages available simultaneously via Soundrink.com.

“We are ecstatic to be out of the studio and touring on 'Juggernaut,'” says vocalist Spencer Sotelo. “The band is planning on performing a good amount of tracks from that record on this tour and we are beyond excited to share this experience with all of our fans. It’s going to be a killer tour and we feel very strongly about the diverse line-up of bands that we were able to bring together for this.”
