Montreal-based Mystery, featuring Benoit David, the current lead singer of Yes, along with Hamadryad, will both officially launch their latest releases with a double-bill show on Saturday, May 22 2010 at the Olympia de Montréal (1004 St-Catherine Street East, Montréal • 514-845-3524).
For Mystery, One Among the Living is their 5th studio album, and for Hamadryad, their 4th release is entitled Intrusion. These two québécois bands have been part of the prog rock scene for the past decade and both have a style that is very much their own.
Mystery's music has evolved over the years just like a fine wine. The various lineup changes have brought together all the parts that make of them one of the most respected symphonic prog rock bands. With their clever mix of art rock and classic rock, Hamadryad adds a touch of energetic motion, transporting the listeners into an exceptional musical adventure.
This show will also celebrate Mystery's return from their highly anticipated gig at RoSFest 2010 in Gettysburg, PA, and Hamadryad's upcoming European tour scheduled to begin in August 2010 where they will headline the prestigious Crescendo festival in France. Both bands will also promote the release of their new albums and will tour throughout Quebec in 2010.
Tickets are on sale at the Olympia boxoffice and through Admission and cost $39 / $49. www.admission.ca
