MORGLBL signed as first band for Progday 2009

ProgDay is very excited to announce MORGLBL as our first confirmed band for 2009!

Made up of guitar master CHRISTOPHE GODIN, bassist IVAN ROUGNY and drummer JEAN-PIERRE FRELÉ ZEAU, THE MORGLBL TRIO released their first album in 1998. The Mörglbl Trio !! offered a guitar-driven instrumental combination of jazz and metal served up with dollops of humor that was well received by critics and fans. The heavier Bienvenue á Mörglbl Land was released in 1999 to even greater acclaim and the band toured Europe.

The momentum of other projects led to the end of THE MORGLBL TRIO in 2000, but everyone stayed in touch. In 2005, while working together on Christophe Godin's Metal Kartoon, the members found renewed interest in their old band. They reformed as MORGLBL and released their third album, Grötesk, in 2007.

French music scene veteran AURÉLIEN OUZOULIAS took over the drum chair in late 2007, and the band went on to deliver a striking set at NEARfest in 2008. As anyone at NEARfest X that Sunday morning can tell you, MORGLBL at ProgDay will be a performance you won't want to miss!

ProgDay is the world's longest running progressive rock event. The 15th edition will take place on September 5th & 6th, 2009, at beautiful Storybook Farm near Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Join us for another great weekend of the best in progressive music!
