Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s "The Christmas Attic": 2nd Chapter in Multi-Platinum Christmas Trilogy celebrates 25th Anniversary13.09.2023
New Vinyl Editions Arriving September 29 / Pre-Order Now!
Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO), the highly acclaimed progressive rock group, will commeorate the 25th anniversary of The Christmas Attic with new vinyl editions of the second chapter in its multi-platinum trilogy of Christmas concept albums, available exclusively at Rhino.com from September 29.
Released in 1998, THE CHRISTMAS ATTIC earned double-platinum certification and continues to captivate audiences with fan favorites like Music Box Blues, Boughs Of Holly, and Ghosts Of Christmas Eve. The album also introduced Christmas Canon, which has become one of the band’s most popular songs and a modern holiday classic. THE CHRISTMAS ATTIC tells the heartwarming tale of a little girl’s magical night spent in an attic filled with yuletide memories, accompanied by spellbinding guitar solos and soaring choral vocals set against a rock orchestral backdrop. The record serves as the second installment in TSO’s celebrated Christmas trilogy, which also includes Christmas Eve and Other Stories (1996) and The Lost Christmas Eve (2004).
TSO was conceived by the group’s late founder, composer, and lyricist Paul O’Neill. His ambitious vision was to create a progressive rock band that combined rock opera and classical rock with a dazzling live show that featured lights, lasers, and pyrotechnics. In the 1980s and 1990s, O’Neill produced several albums for the influential heavy metal band Savatage, which is how he connected with longtime collaborators Jon Oliva (vocals), Al Pitrelli (guitar), and Robert Kinkel (keyboards/producer).
With more than 10 million albums sold, TSO has inspired generations of fans to rediscover the multi-dimensional art form of rock opera. Since its touring debut in 1999, the band has emerged as one of the world’s top live acts, performing for over 10 million people across the globe, selling more than $280 million worth of tickets, and donating $11 million to charity.
THE CHRISTMAS ATTIC will arrive on September 29 e.g. as a 2-LP set on black vinyl, ready for pre-order via https://rhino.lnk.to/TCA25
