New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Celebrating their 21st anniversary as a band, Floating Worlds is setting sail on its most ambitious journey yet which will culminate in the release of their concept album, Battleship Oceania. The epic tale of a legendary battleship and its crew, Battleship Oceania marries Greek myth with modern day morality, with the scale of the story is matched by the music, a truly widescreen tempest of guitars, pummelling drums, synths and gymnastically operatic vocals. Launched with the first single from the album, 'Sailing in History', their latest extract from their saga, 'The Curse', sees the crew learning of their fate. Floating Worlds have released a concept album as mighty as the impenetrable ship itself.
Founded by guitarist Andreas
V. and bassist Vagelis Lekos, Floating Worlds has undergone several line-up changes over the years but have only increased their firepower in doing so. Having released two well-received full-length albums - 2007's "Only a Dream
Can Kill a Dream" and 2012's "Below the Sea of Light", their line-up now sees Andreas
and Vagelis joined by Jon Soti on vocals; Nikitas Mandolas (drums); Mike Papadopoulos (bass) and Sophia
Assarioti on the keyboards and vocals. Having successfully toured countries such as Greece, Croatia, Hungary, Serbia and most recently Russia, Floating Worlds are cementing their place as one of symphonic metal's most inspiring bands.
