Prog Legends Gentle Giant To Release First 4 Albums On Vinyl April 3, 2020

Gentle Giant is happy to announce the release of the first 4 albums on vinyl April 3rd.

After the positive response to the box set “Unburied Treasure,” many fans asked whether the vinyl albums would ever be available. The band has responded and decided to make these albums officially available for the first time in decades.

The band’s first album “Gentle Giant” was first released in October 1970. Produced by Tony Visconti it marks the 50th Anniversary of the recording and live appearances of the band. Tony Visconti produced the follow-up album “Acquiring The Taste” in 1971.

The band oversaw the production of the third album “Three Friends” in 1972 and was the first official release in North America. Strangely the N.A. version featured the artwork from the U.K. “Gentle Giant” album.

This album was followed up with their milestone album “Octopus” in 1972. Once again the North American artwork was different to the Roger Dean U.K. version and featured a dye-cut Octopus in a jar.

Released on the Alucard label, the albums will be manufactured in 180 gram vinyl with the original gatefold artwork from the U.K.

The band hopes that their friends, followers, and fans will enjoy these albums in their original form 50 years later!

ANUBIS GATE announces New Album “Covered in Colours” to be released April 24th on NIGHTMARE RECORDS.

After recording the dark and introspective album “Covered in Black” the band needed a counterweight album, so they decided to release an album of tracks they were greatly inspired by in their youth, careers and by contemporaries…
They believe it’s a cover album like no other cover album you’ve ever heard!

Just as much care has gone into “Covered in Colours” as any other Anubis Gate album.
Guitarist Kim Olesen had this to say; …being the old serious people that are, we consciously strove to avoid the obvious pitfalls of metal-band does cover versions.
Instead, the band has treated these amazing songs like they were their own and almost all of them are completely rearranged.

The album is neatly divided into five corners. You can sit in your favorite corner, be comfortable in others, while there may be a corner from which you don’t care for the view. And just like any old grumpy prog listener, you might get the chance to say “They’ve gone too far”.

Some might ask what on earth the band was thinking… why did they do this? So here’s a little Q & A from their own minds.

Is this an essential Anubis Gate Album? YES! “Though it didn’t feel like it when we first started the project, it became essential when it became clear that this was not just a couple of songs, but a full-blown album project in its own right”.

But why? “Because we trust the process to deliver the answers. After going through the therapy that Covered in Black was, a wave of productivity came over us. And a couple of songs meant as B- sides for future singles became an E.P. But then the project became a runaway train and it ended up being the longest album we’ve ever done”.

Are you serious? “Of course we are, recording and rearranging those songs was seriously fun, but also funnily serious”!

Did you really need to spend time and energy on this project? “Yes. It would be safe to say that without this album the next one would not happen”.

Joe Mac’s American Garage pushes it to 11 for Valentine’s Day with “Slow Motion”

 


Joe Mac’s American Garage releases song number 11 “Slow Motion” a song for you on Valentine’s Day from the upcoming debut album “Bullet Train” due for release in mid-2020. 

So far Joe Mac’s American Garage has released 11 out of about 16 or so demos. premixes of final masters from the upcoming Bullet Train sadly only 10 to 12 tracks will fit on the LP/Vinyl release, so the band is digitally releasing one new track per week. But here’s the catch, the previous song becomes a ghost track, and is replaced by a new track, this will continue until ALL the possible album tracks have been released.

We said this before and we will say it again, t]his has never been done before and this means you will want to purchase each new track as they are released or you may miss out, not all the tracks will end up on the album, only the ones that are most popular by spins and sales or band favorites, this means anyone that has purchased all the tracks will have their own personal bonus tracks, this means each fan’s album will be unique.

*Note:
Each song features many different guest musicians to create something special and unique.

We hope you will join us in the celebration of the upcoming new release Bullet Train

Keyboard Legend Rick Wakeman & The English Rock Ensemble will be releasing “The Red Planet” on April 3, 2020. The album features 8 newly composed pieces, especially for this project, and harks back to Wakeman’s critically acclaimed debut album “The Six Wives of Henry VIII” where there were 6 heavy keyboard pieces based around a central subject matter. It is a serious return to “Wakeman Prog”…

Rick has blown the dust off his favorite analog keyboards and along with his with the latest keyboards, has used the same formula he devised when making his legendary albums “The Six Wive’s of Henry VIII” and “Criminal Record.”

Upon being asked about the expectations of his Prog Fans, that they are hoping he will have shoved the “Prog Fader” up to 11, he replied, “That could be a problem…. as it’s already at 14!!!”

The first 2,000 units of the CD edition signed and numbered, in a special “Pop-Up” CD album cover.
