February 26 street date. Swedish dark melodic metal masters Evergrey return with their 12th album - dark and heavy, the phoenix is rising! Since the release of "Hymns For The Broken" in 2014, Evergrey has enjoyed increased notoriety and success with "The Storm Within" (2016) and "The Atlantic" (2019) - ironically, a conceptual trilogy - which is highly unusual for a veteran act. They mean to continue this tradition with "Escape Of The Phoenix", another heavy, melancholic and thought-provoking journey as only Evergrey can create. The result is 11 songs that embody everything Evergrey fans have to expect, albeit - a more metal version of "The Atlantic", with songs that are more direct - according to Englund and producer Jacob Hansen.
