Part one of a new interview with former STRATOVARIUS and current REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE mastermind Timo Tolkki can be viewed at this location.

REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE recently launched its official web site at this location. Also included on the site are individual video interviews with the other RR bandmembers — keyboardist Mike Khalilov, drummer Bruno Agra (ex-AQUARIA),singer Gus Monsanto (ex-ADAGIO) and bassist Justin Biggs (DESCEND).

REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE recently signed a four-album deal with JVC Victor in Japan for the territories of Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, India, Mongolia, Indonesia, East Timor, Thailand, Malaysia, The Philippines, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Brunei, Burma and Singapore.

JVC Victor has released all STRATOVARIUS records in Japan since 1992.

REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE will embark on a South American tour in early December. The band intends to return to play more shows to South/Central/ North America after the new album has been released and after its European and Asian tour dates.

"New Era", the debut album from REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE, is described in a press release as "a masterpiece of melodic power metal, taking the listener straight back to the 'Visions'-era STRATOVARIUS. In fact, 'New Era' is the album that was meant to be the next STRATOVARIUS album." Guest musicians on the CD include Michael Kiske (vocals; HELLOWEEN),Tobias Sammet (vocals; EDGUY, AVANTASIA),Pasi Rantanen (vocals; THUNDERSTONE),Mirka Rantanen (drums; THUNDERSTONE) and Pasi Heikkilä (bass; 45 DEGREE WOMAN).
