Infinite Visions has finished recording a 4-song demo which will now be presented to labels worldwide. This demo includes the tracks "Dangerous", "Sonata Black", "You Rock My World" and "Infinite Visions", songs which will be featured on their upcoming album, "Union Magnetica", to be released in 2021. They plan to tour and perform select festival dates next year.
The band will be starting a crowdfunding campaign early next month to help finance the making of their album. To kick off the crowdfunding they will release a video for a song from their 4-track demo, with this song also streaming on the band's web site.
