10T Records will release “From the Silence,” the brand new studio release by ILUVATAR, on June 10, 2014, with a retail street date of July 15, 2014.

“From the Silence” represents the Baltimore, MD-based band’s first album of all-new material in over a decade! Featuring all of the signature elements that fans expect, this new release proves that Iluvatar have lost none of the epic grandeur that made them a modern prog legend.

Iluvatar first grew to prominence in the progressive rock renaissance of the early nineties, which led to them gaining a worldwide reputation for their dynamic take on melodic symphonic progressive rock. In addition to numerous headlining shows, Iluvatar have played before progressive rock fans at both ProgScape 94 and 96 in Baltimore, one of New York City’s ProgNights in 96, ProgDay 96 in North Carolina, and ProgEast in Quebec Canada. They played to packed theaters in Buenos Aires, Argentina in September 1997, and performed in Mexicali Mexico at BajaProg 98, NEARfest 2000 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, RosFest 2009 in Philadelphia, PA, and triumphant return to ProgDay in 2012.

On “From the Silence” Iluvatar consist of longtime members Glenn McLaughlin (vocals, percussion), Dennis Mullin (guitars), Jim Rezek (keyboards), Dean Morekas (bass, bass pedals, backing vocals), and Chris Mack (drums, percussion).

“This new CD is an attempt to capture emotions and reactions to personal events, as well as embracing the aging process, and all that goes with it,” says bassist Dean Morekas. “The music is truly a collaborative effort by all members of the band. The music comes from our hearts and we hope to pierce your soul!”

“I have been a fan of Iluvatar since buying their first 2 CDs online back in the 90s,” says 10T Records president, Steve Carroll. “I couldn’t be more excited to have a hand in bringing their new material to fans, and to be able to make their amazing back catalog available again is really a highlight for 10T.  The new material sounds amazing and I know their legions of fans will be more than pleased with this new reinvigorated version of the band.”

“From the Silence” by Iluvatar is now available to preview in its entirety on the Iluvatar artist page.

After July 15th, “From the Silence” will be available through your favorite retail outlet.

Later in 2014, the entire long out-of-print Iluvatar back catalog will be available again in newly re-mastered formats. “Iluvatar,” “Children,” “Sideshow,” and “A Story Two Days Wide” have been re-mastered by producer Jeff Hodges (Man on Fire, FROMUZ, Farpoint, Shadow Circus), who is mastering “From the Silence” as well.

    As a longtime Iluvatar fan, I’ve just finished my first listen of this new album. A high-quality, richly detailed effort, with the band members sounding more mature and self-assured than ever. This album flows like no other one that came before. It has a laid-back but compelling vibe, with considerable depth in the lyrics. Everyone’s performance is strong, conveying their beloved and distinctive styles yet delivering something fresh and unique in relation to past offerings. There is a lot to discover in this album and I look forward to many more listens.
