MIND'S EYE, the Swedish progressive rock/metal band featuring former/current members of THERION, SECRET SPHERE and NOVAK, will release its new album, "A Gentleman's Hurricane", in Japan on August 1 via Mellow Music. It will contain the bonus track "Those Who Fear" and the DVD "The Making of A Gentleman's Hurricane" in NTSC format. The whole package will be slightly different from the European release as the Japanese release will be a resized magazine, double CD package as opposed to the European/U.S. release which will be a DVD package.

With regards to the new album's concept, the band previously said, "The story deals with an assassin's life and whom he killed, everything based on 90% actual facts and 10% fiction, making this an essential nail-biting journey for anyone. The booklet [was once] again done by Mattias Norén (EVERGREY, JOHN PETRUCCI, ARENA), this time really going into depths with the characters in the story, really making them come alive like never before."
