Kinetic Element Set to Launch New Studio Album Chasing the Lesser Light on March 20th Through Melodic Revolution Records in Advance of their Appearance at the Winter’s End Festival in the UK on April 1st. Pre-orders Kick-off March 3rd

Melodic Revolution Records is thrilled to announce the upcoming release Chasing the Lesser Light by US Symphonic Prog band Kinetic Element.

Chasing the Lesser Light is a sixty-minute symphonic prog journey through human’s desire to explore space. From the lunar missions of 50 years ago to the present-day planning for a journey to Mars.

Five songs cover the past, present, and future:

1) First Stage (6:15) – contemplating space travel, as we learn to fly high without wings.
2) Chasing the Lesser Light (19:50) – landing on the moon, and seeing the earth as one world.
3) Radio Silence (9:55) – the perils of space travel, with the emotional impact on an astronaut’s son.
4) We Can’t Forget (11:35) – glancing back at the moon, as we look ahead to mars.
5) Door To Forever (15:18) – reopening the door to space travel, and to become the Starman in the sky.

The cover artwork portrays space travel as commonplace with a man in a business suit and helmet, as he observes an Apollo launch that brought a nation and the world together.

Mike Visaggio: Piano, Organ, & Synthesizers
Michael Murray: Drums
Mark Tupko: Bass
Saint. John Coleman: Vocals
Peter Matuchniak: Guitars

Track 2, 5, by Mike Visaggio
