Jon Oliva Changes Solo Project To Jon Oliva's Pain

Due to possible trade-name conflicts and to avoid “consumer confusion” with the previously announced band name 'Tage Mahal, the name of Oliva’s solo project has been changed to Jon Oliva’s Pain . The title of the record will be called ‘Tage Mahal . The bands management realized that there is an established blues artist in Europe who has been using a similar band name for decades.

The solo debut release date for Savatage mastermind, Jon Oliva, has been set for October 25 in Europe and October 26th in the US . SPV Records will handle distribution worldwide. SPV has expressed incredible enthusiasm for this release after listening to the final master a few weeks ago. Final artwork and packaging is being completed with a massive promotional campaign to begin shortly. An extensive US and European tour will follow soon after. This record is the first installment of a 3-part series which will be followed by a box set release which will include all 3-releases, a live DVD, along with live and studio outtakes from both the recording sessions and the tours to follow.

Jon Oliva’s Pain will debut the new material live at the sold-out Prog-Power V Metal Festival in Atlanta, Georgia on September 16. Also appearing that night will be a performance by Savatage members, both past and present.
