The Tangent, the progressive rock group led by Andy Tillison, have released their new ninth studio album ‘The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery’ today! To celebrate, watch Andy discuss the making of the album in this new interview: https://youtu.be/ky5Tx4iZK1g

The album is available on limited digipak CD, gatefold 2LP + CD, and digital download here: http://smarturl.it/TheTangentTSROFM

Andy comments: “This is our furthest reaching, most ambitious and genuinely heartfelt album since we began our career together. It is the result of our experiences, friendships, disasters and successes over 15 years. We believe in not just OUR music, but the ability of Progressive Rock to be a real life movement in today’s world. This album is our attempt to prove this philosophy true.”

The album has been receiving some fantastic reactions from press, you can find a few of them below:
“Eloquent, far-reaching prog” – Prog Magazine
“sophisticated and spot on” – Classic Rock
“This is essential listening” – Powerplay
“simply masterful…The Tangent are indeed back.” – The Prog Report
“one of the most unique-sounding and technically-impressive groups ever to come out of the British Isles” – Get Ready To Rock

Listen to an excerpt of the track ‘Slow Rust’ here: https://youtu.be/9X1OhUYntEU
Listen to the track ‘Two Rope Swings’ here: https://youtu.be/s9ins8XqqRI

The line-up for this album once again features Tillison on keyboards, vocals (and for the first time on a Tangent record – drums), Jonas Reingold on bass, Luke Machin on guitars and vocals, and Theo Travis on sax and flutes plus new member Marie-Eve de Gaultier on keys and vocals. There are also guest appearances from author/playwright and Chumbawamba founder Boff Whalley on vocals, and upcoming DJ/producer Matt Farrow.

The album sees The Tangent in political commentary mode once again – this time often focussing on the horrendous plight of refugees from war torn parts of the world – and the way in which they are treated by the West, and in particular by the tabloid press. The album laments the new trend in building walls and defending borders across the world yet takes time to look at the breakup of friendships and other more personal issues – along with a song about the fate of wildlife in the modern consumer world.

And it’s a Progressive Rock Record. Full of intricacies, long developed pieces, challenging arrangements and virtuoso playing from all members. New sounds and styles (the band have brought a DJ on board for some sections) – new voices and techniques (first female vocals in The Tangent since the “Not As Good As The Book” album 10 years ago). A new producer in the form of Luke Machin whose open and deep/clear sound is a major factor of this album, a new drummer in the form of Andy Tillison who decided at long last (after drumming for 30 years) to let his own performances guide the rest of the band rather than adding another musician later. And after 13 years of asking, Jonas finally agreed to play some double bass in a song where Luke also plays some Scat guitar and Andy does a full on drum solo.

“The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery” also features stellar artwork from Marvel / DC Comics artist Mark Buckingham. The sleeve of the album is totally based on the music it contains and was especially created for this project.

1. Two Rope Swings
2. Doctor Livingstone (I Presume)
3. Slow Rust
4. The Sad Story of Lead and Astatine
5. A Few Steps Down the Wrong Road
6. Basildonxit

Legendary Dutch progressive rock band KAYAK has signed a worldwide deal with InsideOutMusic! The band’s seventeenth studio album is entitled “Seventeen” and is set for release on January 12th, 2018.

Currently being busy mixing “Seventeen”, the band’s mastermind Ton Scherpenzeel comments: “KAYAK are excited about signing to IOM, and are looking forward to a long lasting and successful collaboration. The combination of the band with an almost complete new line up, and a new record company seems very promising and will hopefully open new doors for us!”

Originally, the album’s release was already announced for October 2017 and a presale is available via KAYAK’s official website. It remains valid but due to the new record deal, these pre-orders will be fulfilled in early 2018 when InsideOutMusic officially releases “Seventeen”.

KAYAK was founded in 1972 by keyboardist/composer Ton Scherpenzeel and drummer/composer Pim Koopman, along with lead singer Max Werner, guitarist Johan Slager and bass player Cees van Leeuwen. Often compared to contemporaries like Yes and Focus, the band quickly developed their own style of symphonic rock that was rather concentrating on songs than elaborate solos and long instrumental passages while KAYAK never shied away from including epic, longer tracks and captivating, dramatic arrangements. Throughout the years, KAYAK has seen many line-up changes with Ton Scherpenzeel now being the only original member and leader of the band.

KAYAK achieved tremendous success from the late 70’s onwards, cracking the US top 60 charts with the single ‘Want You To Be Mine’ in 1978, holding number #1 in the Dutch charts for several weeks with the Platin awarded “Phantom Of The Night” album released in 1979 with its single ‘Ruthless Queen’ reaching #5 on the Dutch single charts. This first era of KAYAK ended after eight albums in 1981. All members went their own way, Ton Scherpenzeel for instance played and recorded with groups like Earth & Fire and Camel, whereas former singer/drummer Max Werner scored a number #2 hit in Germany with ‘Rain In May’ from his second solo record “Seasons” already in 1981.

But the story of KAYAK was not over.

Fast forward to 1999: after an 18 year absence, Ton Scherpenzeel and Pim Koopman restarted KAYAK, with Max Werner again taking over lead vocals. This second era was marked by an explosive, new creativity making the band’s output exceed the early days. In 2009, disaster struck when Koopman died of heart failure in the middle of the “Letters from Utopia” tour. In 2011, the band had overcome this big loss and returned to the stage and with a new album. A couple of years later KAYAK completed their rock opera trilogy “Merlin”, “Nostradamus” and “Cleopatra” but when lead singers Cindy Oudshoorn and Edward Reekers left the band shortly after, Scherpenzeel realized he had to completely renew the line up in order to maintain his creativity as well as keep the band going.

Now, with singer Bart Schwertmann and guitarist Marcel Singor joining Ton Scherpenzeel as the band’s creative core and additional members Kristoffer Gildenlöw (bass / ex Pain Of Salvation) and Collin Leijenaar (drums / Affector, Neal Morse, Dave Bainbridge), a reborn KAYAK once again proves that the band’s name – though chosen randomly back in 1972 – is as appropriate as ever. Just when everyone expects the boat to sink, it miraculously resurfaces and sails on.

Further information on the new album “Seventeen”, which also features a guest appearance by Camel guitar player Andy Latimer, will be revealed soon!

Bent Knee have unveiled their gripping music video for ‘Time Deer’. The video and song are a stunning depiction and commentary on our ever-changing and strained relationship with technology and our environment, just one of the many themes discussed on band’s critically-acclaimed album Land Animal.

Watch it now here: https://youtu.be/JjAnRiMjipw

The director Riki Nitabaru comments: “Before I began working on the animation, I spent some time thinking about how to portray the song’s story in visuals. The story centers around a deer that travels through time, trying to find the cause of humanity’s problems in the modern world. I thought it would be too dull to draw that up literally, so I interpreted the story in my own way to add some flare.

In my take, just as the deer finds the cause of all strife, the world starts to cleanse itself. The deer becomes a receptacle of all living things, and it morphs to become a brand new being that encompasses all life forms.

Since I had this storyboard in my mind, putting together the production was like a simple puzzle. There were times where I was unsure what to draw for specific moments of the song. But, I found inspiration in the drama portrayed in the music, and was able to create something better than I first imagined.

I hope this video enhances your enjoyment of Bent Knee!”

‘Land Animal’ is available as CD, LP+ CD & digital download here:

“Bent Knee deliver in a way that not many bands can.” – Louder Than War

“Throwing off shackles of genre…truly the definition of experimentalism.” – Consequence of Sound

“It’s very rare that an artist or band comes along that changes your perspective on music and art. Bent Knee have done just that.” – Substream

The band recently released a live video for the single ‘Terror Bird’, and you can watch that here:
https://youtu.be/XIcTchfB8To

Bent Knee formed in 2009 as a democratic collective determined to push the boundaries of pop and rock. Lead singer and keyboardist Courtney Swain’s soaring vocals are instantly arresting. Guitarist Ben Levin is one of the most dynamic and versatile guitarists around, shifting between the raging and raucous to the sublime and meditative. Bassist Jessica Kion and drummer Gavin Wallace-Ailsworth combine into an enthralling rhythm section that’s equal parts powerhouse and nuance. Violinist Chris Baum’s kinetic violin work provides drama, grace and intrigue. World-class producer and live sound designer Vince Welch weaves it all together with a captivating, expert touch.

The band has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Its last two albums, 2016’s Say So and 2014’s Shiny Eyed Babies, were hailed as significant art-rock achievements. The group has performed hundreds of shows across the world to date. During the fall of 2016, the band played for ecstatic audiences as an opener for the U.S. leg of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s farewell tour ahead of signing with InsideOutMusic/Sony.

“We’re very excited to be working with InsideOutMusic/Sony,” said Swain. “It’s wonderful to have our music reach a lot of new ears across the globe through them. It’s an honor to join their roster of prestigious artists and we look forward to a long relationship with the label.”

“Mind boggling… the grandest and subtlest ideas are on the table” – NPR

“The silo-smashing Bent Knee’s unique mix is equal parts ingenuity and deliciousness” – The Wall Street Journal

“Bent Knee breaks new stylistic and temperamental ground” – The Boston Globe

PFM (Premiata Forneria Marconi), the most famous Italian rock band in the world and InsideOutMusic are proud to announce their partnership to release the band’s upcoming albums worldwide!

PFM began writing their new opus, entitled ‘Emotional Tattoos’, in 2016, started recording in early 2017 and are about to finalize it in July! The worldwide release is currently planned for late October.

Drummer and singer Franz Di Cioccio commented: “We are delighted to be a part of the InsideOutMusic family! We have created a powerful record that will bring the sound and creative energy of PFM all over the world.”

Patrick Djivas, bass player and co-author of the music, added: “I am very excited to sign with such an important record company. I’m looking forward to the opportunity of playing our new songs for our audience all over the world.”

Thomas Waber, Label Manager and Head of A&R at InsideOutMusic says: “We are really excited to be working with this legendary Italian band. Their passion and fire still burns very bright!”

PFM is a very eclectic and exuberant musical group with a distinctive style that impressively combines rock, progressive, and classical music into one mesmerizing sonic entity. Formed in 1971, the band quickly gained a prominent place on the international scene by making it to the Billboard charts (for 1973’s ‘Photos Of Ghosts’), and winning a Gold record in Japan while constantly ruling the charts in their home country until today. Recently, PFM were honored with position #50 in the “UK Classic Rock Hall of Fame” of the 100 most important artists in the world.

‘Emotional Tattoos’, PFM’s new album, marks the return of the band’s trademark sound after two more experimental releases: “PFM in Classic, from Mozart to Celebration”, dedicated to leading European classical music composers; and ‘States of Imagination’, a journey of sound and images comprising eight short movies, each with a different theme and atmosphere.

‘Emotional Tattoos’ finds its inspiration in a compassionate and wide look at the predicament of our planet and humanity as well as on the relationship between music and dreaming. The album’s sound is energetic, imaginative and encompassing, inviting all listeners to really sink into its musical facets and stories. These are not just songs: these are emotional tattoos you can feel on your skin.

PFM is:
Alessandro Scaglione: keyboards, Hammond, Moog
Lucio Fabbri: violin
Patrick Djivas: bass
Franz Di Cioccio: lead vocals, drums
Marco Sfogli: guitars

Legendary Swedish progressive rockers Kaipa, led by mastermind Hans Lundin, have announced the release of their new studio album ‘Children of the Sounds’ for 22nd September 2017. The band’s 13th album, and 8th since the act were reborn in 2002, this album features the line-up of Lundin, accompanied by Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry), Morgan Ågren (Karmakanic), Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings, Karmakanic), Patrik Lundström (Ritual) & Aleena Gibson, plus a guest appearance from violinist Elin Rubinsztein.
Hans comments: “In November 2014 when I was still filled with all the energy I had captured during the summer I started to write the new songs. What really made me push the start button this time was a magic spirit that filled my whole body after visiting a concert with Morgan Ågren and his band ‘Mats & Morgan Band’. I woke up the morning after the concert and still felt that enormous groove filling every part of my consciousness. I realized that I had to canalize all this energy somewhere so I decided to start to write some new music. I had also found a lot of inspiration from the long bicycle rides that I made during the summer in the open land-scape around Uppsala. It was like if the notes were rising up from the billowing fields I passed and the words were falling like raindrops from the clear sky. So now I suddenly had found the key to open up all these ideas that had been slumbering at the back of my mind for a while. All the beauty and the wondrous inspiration from nature in combination with this “enormous groove” made me create five long songs during the next months.”

The track-listing for the album is as follows:

1. Children of the Sounds 11:31
2. On The Edge of New Horizons 17:10
3. Like A Serpentine 12:52
4. The Shadowy Sunlight 6:57
5. What’s Behind The Fields 9:31

The result is as colourful musically and lyrically as Kaipa devotees will expect from the band’s rich discography dating back to the debut opus released in 1975. Formed in 1973, Kaipa never shied away from experimentation, embracing fresh elements and sounds manifesting especially on the albums released in the 2000’s. ‘Children Of The Sounds’ is no exception, the album burns with creative fervour and spirit most vividly displayed on the title track, the 17 minutes long ‘On The Edge Of New Horizons’ or closing track ‘What’s Behind The Fields’. It embodies a powerful, positive energy and artistic brilliance that is irresistible and true to the genre’s very essence.

Rising young metallers Next To None release their sophomore album ‘Phases’ today, in Europe via InsideOutMusic & in North America via EMP. Pick up the album now here: http://smarturl.it/NextToNone-Phases

The band comments on the release:
“Phases is a great representation of what we can do as musicians. It shows our metal side, our progressive side, and the tons of dynamics.”Max Portnoy
“I’m really excited for people to finally hear what we’re capable of. We all worked really hard collectively to deliver something we could definitely say was our own, and shows our various talents”Kris Rank
“An album that really wets my lips”Thomas Cucé
“Had a great time recording this album and hope people will really enjoy the listening experience.”Derrick Schneider

The band have just finished a run of shows supporting Mike Portnoy’s Shattered Fortress in Europe, including last night’s sold out show in Tilburg, Holland. Metal Talk noted of the London show that “they left the stage to sound acclaim, clearly having won new admirers”.

‘Phases’ has been receiving great reviews, and you can find a few of them below:
“an intriguing and intelligent album”– Powerplay Magazine
“heavier, weirder and, importantly, far more confident” – Prog Magazine
“a fine achievement” – Metal Discovery
“an album you could listen to over and over again and always find something to delight you.” – Avenoctum

The band recently launched a lyric video for the new track ‘Pause’, and you can check that out here: https://youtu.be/Sm40F4sbP4U

The band launched a behind the scenes teaser video, giving you a glimpse into the recording of ‘Phases’, and you can watch that here: https://youtu.be/BFX6ILGjAQM
Watch the video for the album’s first single ‘The Apple’ here: https://youtu.be/usnsetwZsxc

5. Alone
6. Kek
7. Clarity
8. Pause

11. Denial
12. The Wanderer

Formed in 2012, and based in Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, the foursome released their well-received debut ‘A Light In The Dark’ during 2015 on InsideOut. But if this set a template for the band’s style, then this has now been excitingly stretched.

“We actually began to write songs for the new record as soon as we finished the first one,” explains drummer Max Portnoy. As previously, this involved the duo of Portnoy and vocalist/keyboard player Thomas Cuce collaborating in this part of the process. And, also to some extent mirroring ‘A Light In The Dark’, there’s a partial concept here. “On the previous album we had six tracks which were lyrically linked. But it did not stretch throughout all the
songs. This time, we have four tracks which deal with the idea of grief. However, that isn’t reflected on the entire record.”

The new 12-track album (including two short instrumental passages) marks the recording debut of new guitarist Derrick Schneider who replaced Ryland Holland last year, (the line-up is completed by bassist Kris Rank). “Ryland wanted to go to college, and is now going to Berklee College Of Music, whereas the rest of us wanted to be in the band full-time. So, there was no way that he could carry on with us. And we were very lucky to find someone immediately to take over. He was recommended to us by Bumblefoot (the ex-Guns N Roses guitarist who guested on the first record) and he was the only guy we tried out that fit perfectly. Musically and personally he fit straight in with us. One of the things he does so well is shred on guitar but he also has great voice and plays very heavy which has made a difference to our style and sound.”

Although the album was mixed by the Grammy nominated Adam “Nolly” Getgood (Periphery), the band have produced themselves this time, a decision Portnoy insists has been of immeasurable help. “It’s a collective production, with all of the band having their say. We had strong ideas as to how we wanted this album to turn out, and if we’d brought in an outside producer, then this could have changed. So, it was best for us to stick together and follow our own vision.” The recording process started early last October, with the drum parts being recorded at Neal Morse’s Radiant Studios in Nashville; these sessions were engineered by Jerry Guidroz. “We then spent about four months at Thomas’ home studio (Battery Powered Studios) doing the rest of the work; Thomas was the engineer for those sessions. We were in there every day until 3am. I don’t know how Kris coped, because he was going to school after we’d finished in the studio and getting just a couple of hours’ sleep.

Portnoy believes Next To None have become a sharper and more challenging band with ‘Phases’. “I suppose you could say that we’ve done here is do more of everything we did before, but the greater experience we now have has helped us become better at what we want to do. This time around, there are no guests featured, as was the case on ‘A Light In The Dark’, and as it’s just the four of us you are getting more of what we want to express to everyone, musically and lyrically.”

The Tangent, the progressive rock group led by Andy Tillison, recently announced the release of their first new music since 2015. Their new ninth studio album ‘The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery’ is set for release on 21st July 2017

and today sees the release of an edit of the track ‘Slow Rust’ which you can listen to here.

Andy comments: “The song ‘Slow Rust’ is a long involved piece that looks at the whole massive set of implications of the various refugee crises around the world today. The piece tries to take on many of the points of view from different groups like The Press, Politicians, Industry, Education and all of US – but just for this section of the song we turned the camera on the people actually in the middle of this story, desperate people doing desperate things in a world that has little time to help them.

‘The Actual Story’ is a small section of this massive piece – a subsection of it. Marie Eve de Gaultier’s voice becomes the leading instrument here in a rare Tangent acoustic section and is one of the highlights of the album as a whole, part of one of the band’s most complex ever songs both in musical construction and lyrical development. The piece is challenging, dynamic and ‘of its time’.”

A series of track-by-track interviews featuring Andy Tillison and Luke Machin discussing the album in detail were recently launched, and you can watch the latest one here.

Listen to previously released track ‘Two Rope Swings’ here.

The line-up for this album once again features Tillison on keyboards, vocals (and for the first time on a Tangent record – drums), Jonas Reingold on bass, Luke Machin on guitars and vocals, and Theo Travis on sax and flutes plus new member Marie-Eve de Gaultier on keys and vocals. There are also guest appearances from author/playwright and Chumbawamba founder Boff Whalley on vocals, and upcoming DJ/producer Matt Farrow.

The album sees The Tangent in political commentary mode once again – this time often focussing on the horrendous plight of refugees from war torn parts of the world – and the way in which they are treated by the West, and in particular by the tabloid press. The album laments the new trend in building walls and defending borders across the world yet takes time to look at the breakup of friendships and other more personal issues – along with a song about the fate of wildlife in the modern consumer world.

And it’s a Progressive Rock Record. Full of intricacies, long developed pieces, challenging arrangements and virtuoso playing from all members. New sounds and styles (the band have brought a DJ on board for some sections) – new voices and techniques (first female vocals in The Tangent since the “Not As Good As The Book” album 10 years ago). A new producer in the form of Luke Machin whose open and deep/clear sound is a major factor of this album, a new drummer in the form of Andy Tillison who decided at long last (after drumming for 30 years) to let his own performances guide the rest of the band rather than adding another musician later. And after 13 years of asking, Jonas finally agreed to play some double bass in a song where Luke also plays some Scat guitar and Andy does a full on drum solo.

“The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery” also features stellar artwork from Marvel / DC Comics artist Mark Buckingham. The sleeve of the album is totally based on the music it contains and was especially created for this project.
