Osada Vida - new line-up, new plans

Osada Vida, one of the most interesting Polish bands on the prog-metal scene, is currently working on the material for their brand new studio album. The new release, planned for Autumn 2014, will mark a line-up change – Bartek Bereska, the band’s previous guitarist, decided to part ways with the band due to personal reasons. He was replaced by Jan Mitoraj, a young and very talented guitarist known from his work with Brain Connect and  Pasimito.
Osada Vida AD 2014 (l-r): Łukasz Lisiak, Adam Podzimski, Marek Majewski, Jan Mitoraj, Rafał Paluszek
Osada Vida is one of the most interesting Polish bands on the prog-rock scene. Their discography includes three demos and four well received official releases - “Three Seats Behind a Triangle” (2006/2007), “The Body Parts Party” (2008), “Uninvited Dreams” (2009) and “Particles” (2013). Their albums feature elaborately beautiful music in the vein of Yes, Porcupine Tree, Pain Of Salvation and Riverside. In early July, Osada Vida released their first live DVD entitled “Where The Devils Live” featuring the recording of their live appearance at the Wyspianski Theater in Katowice, Poland in Autumn 2011. In 2012 the band debuted in a new improved line-up - they have added a new vocalist Marek Majewski, previously known from the band Acute Mind. In Autumn 2013 the band replaced guitarist Bartek Bereska with young and talented musician – Jan Mintoraj.
Osada Vida is also recognized worldwide - they played at the famous US' ROSfest 2011 and at the beginning of October 2012 they were a part of Israeli ProgStage festival where they performed next to Andromeda, The Flower Kings or Orphaned Land.
The band’s fifth studio album is scheduled for release in Autumn 2014.
