Revolution Renaissance Announces Decision To Split

Timo Tolkki, formerly of power metallers Stratovarius, has announced his decision to split apart his current project Revolution Renaissance due to various reasons. Tolkki commented by saying:

"Due to my private problems, the lack of interest in Revolution Renaissance, shows by the promoters, and the current situation in the music industry that affects to everything including the production budgets, it has become impossible to continue the band. We have tried to book shows in these last three years, but we haven't been able to do so. A rock band cannot exist without direct contact to its fans. Therefore I have no other choice but to make the decision to stop the band and its activities due to the above-mentioned reasons. The third and final album of the band will be released at the end of September. From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank all the fans of my music throughout the years. It's been a great journey."

A third Revolution Renaissance album, titled "Trinity," is still planned for release later in the year through Napalm Records.

Sorry to hear that. Timo Tolkki is an extraodinary musician and writter, he did some amazing works in STRATOVARIOUS and some pretty highly caliber music works in REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE it's a pity I never saw any of the RR albums in the USA. It really sad when your own Record Company don't keep your back and make sure your music is being release in every scope of the World as possible. Don't leave the music World TIMO your an incrediable music force. Godbless!
