After a 8 year hiatus the band released their 3rd studio album Whirlwind to mostly positive reviews. The band have decided to start working on the follow up with 3 members of the band recently touring together and sparking interest in the future of the band.
"We have set dates in May; and, my friends, it is actually happening! Before I left for the tour, and even just a few days ago, I have a lot of really strong prog music ideas that I’m really excited about presenting to the guys," says Neal Morse.
Morse believes that the album could be released next year.
Transatlantic is best prog. Portnoy finally doing something useful with his talent.
Digging: Athletics - Who You Are Is Not Enough
I concur; totally thrilled to hear these guys are writing more music together.
Well, alright. I look forward to covering this.
Digging: Edan - Beauty and the Beat
Still gotta check these guys out. Where to start?
Digging: Humanfly - Awesome Science
Whirlwind, totally looking foward to this album. Portnoy is brilliant in this band
Haven't really checked these guys out, but they're supposed to be really good. Their cover of Genesis's "Return of the Giant Hogweed" is phenomenal.
Digging: Ceremony - Ruined
Portnoys drums sound at their very best on Whirlwind, plus he grooves on that record, much more emotive playing than in recent memory from him.
Digging: Jaga Jazzist - What We Must
Just started listening to Whirlwind, it's sounds all amazing but I wish the vocals would come in sometime soon.
The instrumental section of the title track is incredible, the vocals will come soon enough, (spoiler alert) all 4 of them :D
Band is great. Finally some good news.
Well as long as they don't rush it... Despite being a prog band I think they could use some focus of their material. Just because they can fill up a CD doesn't mean they should, The Whirlwind was about 30 minutes too long.
With MP, Roine Stolt and Neal Morse on board you know yuo can expect every bit of the CD to be filled
Good news. Full of promising.
