On October 30th, 2020 progressive rockers THE FLOWER KINGS will release their new double album Islands on InsideOutMusic, just a year after the group’s much celebrated Waiting For Miracles.
With Broken, the group presents the first track from this opus and the band has the following to say about the track:
“Howdy people – how is life on your islands and in your isolation? Good news is – there is music – and even better – there is NEW music from THE FLOWER KINGS. Here is ‘Broken’ – first song from our new double album/triple LP !! ‘Broken’ is a song about addiction, stress and confusion – Not a typical song for the album, because the album has no ‘typical’ style – it is just a wild ride of styles and influences. We’re super excited about you to hear ALL of it, but here is a first glimpse of the progressive smorgasbord. There is more waiting. Get your pre-orders going!
Much love from Jonas – Mirkko – Zach – Hasse & Roine!”

The 92 minutes long Islands features artwork by legend Roger Dean (Yes, Asia, Gentle Giant, Greenslade, Uriah Heep) and all trademark sounds and melodies, the band is renowned for. From vintage keys to epic guitar solos, from odd drum patterns to symphonic elements, THE FLOWER KINGS present a dynamic and complex record that is bold, bombastic and beautiful.
Islands is now available as massive Limited 3LP & 2CD box set with slipcase and 180 gram vinyl housed in one gatefold, one single sleeve; as Limited Edition 2CD Digipak and Digital Album.
