The Source‘ is a new chapter in the epic Ayreon saga, with contributions from renowned vocalists like James LaBrie (Dream Theater), Simone Simons (Epica), Floor Jansen (Nightwish), Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian), Tobias Sammet (Edguy, Avantasia), Russell Allen (Symphony X) and Australia’s own Mike Mills (Toehider) to name but a few.

88 FINGERS LOUIE RETURN WITH A NEW ALBUM
88 Fingers Louie are back with their first album in 19 years, entitled ‘Thank You For Being a Friend‘.

The Chicago-based punks have teamed up with Florida’s Bird Attack Records to release the new album on June 30th.

A lot has changed in the 19 years since 88 Fingers Louie last released an album. Shortly after the release of a split EP in 1999 with Philadelphia’s Kid Dynamite, the band decided to call it quits due to differences in vision for the band’s future. Its previous members went on to form and join almost a dozen new bands in the wake of 88FL’s demise (Rise Against, Explode and Make Up, The Story So Far, Paper Mice, Alkaline Trio and many more).

Listen to a new track, ‘Advice Column‘ which will appear on the album below.
