SUPPORT - THROUGH INFINITY
Croatian guitarist and songwriter Josip Pesut hits the extensive UK tour with his rock band Through Infinity to promote a new, third studio album The Afterlife. It is indeed one of a kind situation that a musician has such a strong passion to perform that he alone books the tour and then seeks for ways to reach the audience. Yet, at the same time, this story involves much of soul searching and decision making every artist has to go through to stay true to their personality and art.
Influenced by an array of names is many different genres, but emphasising Nobuo Uematsu, Joe Satriani, Peter Gabriel, Bon Jovi, Guns ’N’ Roses and Toto, Through Infinity are on the cusp of breaking the UK market with their intrigue. Their extravagant UK tour will surely cement them into the minds of all sorts of rock fans, both here and abroad.
