London UK – Chasing The Monsoon’s eagerly anticipated debut album ‘No Ordinary World’ will be released on Sept 20th from Immrama Records, Plane Groovy and Gonzo Media. Ian Jones, a founder member of critically acclaimed symphonic/progressive rock band Karnataka, and Steve Evans, multi-million selling songwriter and producer join forces with vocalist Lisa Fury, guitarist Ian Simmons and special guests including world-renowned Uilleann pipe player Troy Donockley (Nightwish) to create a powerful, dynamic and evocative sound fusing lush cinematic soundscapes with progressive, Celtic and world music influences, all bound in a state-of-the-art production.
This is expansive, cinematic music painted on a very broad canvas but with intimate story telling at its heart, taking the listener on an emotional journey through the rose-tinted memories of our childhood summers to the devastating threat of a nuclear winter but with an overarching theme of hope over adversity.
“Creatively, we were inspired by the beauty of our unique and beautiful yet fragile planet, juxtaposed against the increasingly loud alarm bells that warn of humankind’s impact on its future,“ says Ian & Steve. “Ultimately, this is an album that shines a positive light on an uncertain world.”
Recorded in Swansea and London, No Ordinary World is released in Sep 2019 on deluxe audiophile heavyweight vinyl as a double album edition of just 300 copies in a gatefold cover and is available to pre-order from www.burningshed.com
In closing Ian & Steve had this to impart, “We hope you enjoy listening to our debut album as much as we enjoyed making it. This has been a labor of love for the band and we’re very proud of our new creation. Over to you!”
