Andre Matos Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of "Angels Cry" With Album's Live Perfomance In Full

Former Angra vocalist Andre Matos will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of his former band's first LP "Angels Cry" this year by performing the entire release on a upcoming 2013 tour this year in support of his latest solo album "The Turn of the Lights." Matos was with Angra from its inception in 1991 to 2000 when he left to form Shaman.

The press release reads as follows:

"2013 is a special year for Andre Matos. The vocalist, along with his solo band, will launch the promotion tour for his new album 'The Turn of the Lights' with an extra bonus for the fans: the band will play the album 'Angels Cry' in full.

"Released in 1993, 'Angels Cry' was Andre Matos' first album with Angra, just recently formed at the time. The vocalist, despite his young age, had already recorded two successful albums with the band Viper and studied classical piano, composition and conducting. Besides recording vocals and keyboards for all tracks, Andre Matos was the writer and arranger of nine out of ten tracks on the album, including 'Carry On,' which became a worldwide heavy metal hit. With his cutting edge combination of power and progressive metal, classical music rhythm and elements, 'Angels Cry' became a huge international success and placed the Brazilian band among the main power metal bands of their time."

"Andre Matos, who has recently released the album 'The Turn of The Lights' in over 30 countries, will start his new tour in March 2013. The vocalist and his band promise a complete show, which will be divided in two parts: first part will feature songs from his new album and hits from his whole career - including Viper, Shaman and Solo band eras - and on the second part, the album 'Angels Cry' will be played in full, celebrating 20 years of a unique moment that made history."

Tour dates are expected shortly. For more information visit Andre Matos' Offical website.
