Ex-Stratovarius main man, Timo Tolkki's new band Revolution Renaissance is still seeking a bassist. Here is the update from the man himself:

"Having almost completed the line up for REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE, we are still looking for bass players. You have to be quick, recordings and tours are awaiting. So please send 2 recently taken photos (one headshot and one fullbody shot) and 3 MP3's of your playing with a short desrciption about yourself. Don't send links, send the material exactly as requested. You can be from anywhere, but Scandinavians have the priority. Good luck! Send the stuff to: rr@timotolkki.com"

As previously reported, Tolkii recenlty revealed the band's vocalist as Gus Monsanto, a 33-year old metal singer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The first record from the new band, aptly entitled "New Era," which is set for a June 8, 2008 release, includes the vocal talents of Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween), Tobias Sammet (Edguy, Avantasia) and Pasi Rantanen (Thunderstone) plus Mirka Rantanen on drums (Thunderstone), Pasi Heikkilä on bass (45 Degree Woman) and Joonas Puolakka on keyboards.

Tolkki originally composed all the songs included in this album for Stratovarius, but after the group broke up, he thought he needed to get these songs out and did not spend time looking for a permanent band line-up. He is currently still auditioning musicians and as soon as a stable line-up is set in stone, Revolution Renaissance will start its life as a live unit.

The tracklisting of “New Era” includes:

1. Heroes (lead vocals: Tobias Sammet)
2. I Did It My Way (lead vocals: Michael Kiske)
3. We Are Magic (lead vocals: Pasi Rantanen)
4. Angel (lead vocals: Michael Kiske)
5. Eden Is Burning (lead vocals: Pasi Rantanen)
6. Glorious And Divine (lead vocals: Tobias Sammet)
7. Born Upon The Cross (lead vocals: Pasi Rantanen)
8. Keep The Flame Alive (lead vocals: Michael Kiske)
9. Last Night On Earth (lead vocals: Michael Kiske)
10. Revolution Renaissance (lead vocals: Michael Kiske)
