Unitopia:  New album "Artificial" out in May 2010!
Unitopia is proud to announce the release of their brand new album entitled “Artificial” on May 3rd 2010 in Europe and May 4th 2010 in the USA. The follow-up to “The Garden” will be the band’s second official release on Inside Out music, and their third album release. Their first album, “More Than a Dream”, was previously released on Unicorn Digital records.

“Artificial” uses symphonic, progressive, world, jazz and art rock elements to illustrate the dichotomy of an artificial world that is developing within our real world and how we as human beings relate to each of these worlds.

A few changes in the band have occurred this year. Mark Trueack (Lead and backing vocals), Sean Timms (Keyboards/backing vocals), Matt Williams (Guitars/backing vocals), Tim Irrgang (Percussion), remain from the original formation preserving the original and innovative “Unitopian” sound, while Jamie Jones (Drums), Shaun Duncan (Bass) and Peter Raidel (Saxes), bring an exciting dimension to the new tracks adding an even more emotional aspect to the music than before, if possible.

This first and special Edition of “Artifical” will feature a 20 pages booklet plus three bonus tracks and we are pleased to announce those attending RoSfest 2010 will be able to purchase this special Edition directly from the stand on May 1st.

Ed Unitsky is signing on once again to do the magnificent artwork for the album. Ed is known for his complex and captivating Surrealistic Images that expand the mind creating an imaginary place where one can journey into the fantastic realms of the imagination.

Ed’s art has been compared with the likes of Roger Dean, H.R. Giger, Rodney Matthews, Storm Thorgerson, Paul Whitehead and many other prestigious master fantasy artists and he is being touted as a modern day Dali. Ed’s creative range is remarkable. His unique signature style resonates an old world Russian influence with an innovative Pop Culture flair. Many seem to believe it is inspired from the divine.

Samples of the new songs will be available to hear in early April at www.unitopiamusic.com, and at www.myspace.com/unitopiaband. Please visit our website for the track listing.
