UK based symphonic rockers Winter In Eden have been added to the bill of CAMBRIDGE ROCKS 2012, being given the main support slot to Kyrbgrinder, on the Classic Rock Society Stage, on Friday August 3rd.
This news comes in the wake of the cancellation of the Spring Edition of the festival where the band were due to play.
Also, the band has confirmed a show for Saturday 19th May with Crimson Sky, at the Sea Mills Community Centre, Sunny Hill, Bristol, BS9 2NQ
Here’s the full list of shows as it stands at the moment
19th May – Bristol, Sea Mills Community Centre
28th July – Leeds, Chebfest@ Empire
3rd August – Cambridge Rocks 2012, Haggis Farm Polo Club, Barton, Cambridge
27th October – Whitby, Bram Stoker Vampire Ball
28th October – Birmingham, The Roadhouse
Based in the UK and with two releases already under their belts, as well as a touring portfolio which is as impressive as it is long, Winter In Eden have been treading the boards with their mix of the symphonic and the heavy since 2009 when forming in the North East of England around the line up of Vicky Johnson (Vocals), Steve Johnson (Keyboards), Samuel Cull (Guitar), Ian Heddle (Bass) and new drummer Steve Hauxwell, who replaced the original incumbent Wayne McAloon just recently.
The band released their self-financed debut “At The Edge Of The World” in 2009, and a full CD entitled “Awakening” in 2010, but they’re now back with new record “Echoes Of Betrayal” which is now released; and with dates already running, it’s set to be a busy 2012.
Having worked on “Echoes…” with legendary producer Fred Purser (Sebastian Bach, Tom Jones), these guys certainly know their way around a studio, so it’s no surprise that the album is going down a storm with fans; let’s hope you all get a chance to catch the band at some point during this tour?

Further, the band is currently top of the poles at the Unleash The Furies website “Band Of The Month” competition
