Darrel Treece-Birch has chosen The Stand as the second video release from the album Healing Touch released October 27, 2017. The Stand represents that which we achieve against the greatest of odds, finding the inner strength that only the soul can muster. The gravitas of the journey and the magnitude of the achievement can only be captured in imagery which we can all relate. A child of the space age, Darrel simply and with great elegance takes us on a journey to space to look upon our home, humanities “stand” against gravity. Each of us is on a journey, and though we find ourselves moving in our own time, and to the beat of our own drum we find commonality for at some point we stood fast, and we held strong; to defy that which tried to hold us back from our great potential. Healing Touch is an album that speaks of a journey to renewal with the pivotal moment being – The Stand.

Spanish instrumentalist rockers Toundra recently announced the release of their fifth studio album ‘Vortex’ for April 27th, 2018, following the success of ‘IV,’ which reached an historic #2 in the Spanish charts.
Now they are proud to reveal the powerful new video for the first single ‘Cobra’, created by Jorge Escalona using photographic material from Pulitzer Prize winner Manu Brabo and video material from well-known Spanish journalist Gonzo.
Manu Brabo comments: “It made me feel really proud to collaborate on this considering how socially responsible the band was being as an artist and communicators.”
Gonzo adds: “The victims in every war is always the innocent, who never starts the war. They lose their lives, their homes and their dreams. Refugees escaping their homelands become ambassadors of the nonsense.”
Toundra comments: “With this video we just wanted to shine a light on those who Victor Hugo called Les Miseràbles.”
Watch the video now here:
As mentioned previously, the title of the album is ‘Vortex’, as the band explain:
“On September 19th in 2012 we arrived at a venue called ‘Vortex Surfer Musiklub’ in Siegen, a small town in Germany. We played there, the venue got packed and everything about that night, including the warm welcome from everybody working there, was incredible. We fell in love with that small venue and the house next to it where we slept that night.
“Since then, we played Vortex five or six times and there has always been that same great fond feeling from the people there. So, this upcoming album is called ‘Vortex’. We leave behind the roman numbers and want to use this as a way to thank all the promoters, people working in venues, labels, agencies, fans… and everyone who has helped us over the years to live this dream. We can’t wait for you to hear some of the music”
The album will be released on special edition CD digipak, gatefold black LP + CD & as digital download. Pre-order the album now here: https://toundra.lnk.to/Vortex

Sound of Contact co-founder Dave Kerzner has released a new music video from his second solo album “Static”. It’s for his song “Dirty Soap Box” which features a guest appearance from the legendary Steve Hackett, former guitarist of Genesis.
“I wanted to make reference to my deep-rooted influences of early Genesis in this song,” says Kerzner. “Having Steve Hackett join us for this modern day ‘Broadway Melody’ type adventure through current events completed the picture for me.”

Chilean Prog ensemble Aisles, South America’s most acclaimed prog band of the last 10 years, is premiering the second video of their “Live from Estudio del Sur” sessions, for the song “Shallow and Daft”, which was originally released on the album “4:45 AM” (2013). The clip was directed by Bernardo Quesney, who has worked with artists like Gepe and Javiera Mena.
Pure Grain Audio has premiered Aisles new video for “Shallow and Daft”:http://puregrainaudio.com/videos/aisles-take-aim-at-the-shallow-and-daft-in-new-in-studio-playthrough-exclusive-premiere
Says Aisles guitarist, German Vergara, “Shallow and Daft is a song with a strong criticism to the logic behind the mass entertainment industry. We wanted to be deliberately ironic and the original version had a notoriously ’80s pop sound. When we decided to release this series of videos we thought we could make it more current with a modern, fresher sound. Additionally, we wanted to include a feminine touch so we invited the talented singer Catalina Blanco from the rock band Tephiret. We kept the message but presented it in a new form”.
The “Live from Estudio del Sur” sessions started with the video for the song ‘Clouds Motion’, and it will continue with more videos coming soon.
With four studio albums and a career spanning twelve years, Aisles have become South America’s most acclaimed prog act of the last decade. Their daring combination of rock, fusion, jazz and world music illustrates the band’s uniquely eclectic approach. The group has played in South America and Europe, and their albums have been released in Europe, the Americas, and Japan.
In 2009 their second album “In Sudden Walks” was nominated for Best Foreign Record in the Italian Prog Awards and the group was invited to open the 11th Progressive Rock Festival Crescendo in France. Their third album, “4:45 AM” (2013) was widely acclaimed worldwide and was chosen among the best albums of that year in a number of specialized publications. “Hawaii” (July, 2016), their fourth studio album was called a “masterpiece” and named one of the albums of the year by media outlets such as Prog (England), Neoprog (France), Raw Ramp (England) and Chile’s premiere rock magazine, Rockaxis.
