The band checked in to comment about the upcoming touring as follows:
"We are very pleased to inform that the "New Generation Tour" is not over. Due to the huge interest and the success of our latest album ¨Shrine of New Generation Slaves", and also due to the fact that some people are only getting to know us, we are going to play for you in a few more places in April 2014. Obviously, there will be changes in the setlist and lots of surprises. Those shows will be the last ones before a longer break. After them we´ll hide in the studio to work on our sixth album."

Upon release, RIVERSIDE's newest album, "Shrine Of New Generation Slaves", impressively entered the national sales charts of several countries as follows (highest chart week position mentioned!): Germany: # 33, Poland: # 2, The Netherlands: # 28, The Netherlands (Alternative Charts): # 9, Switzerland: # 51, UK (Rock Charts): # 24, Finland: # 41, France (Top 200): # 194, USA (Billboard New Artists Chart): # 18.
