For me, Relayer’s up there in the top three albums the band’s ever made - Alan White May 2020 will see Prog legends Yes touring Europe, which will take in a series of eight dates in the UK, including one at London’s Albert Hall where, as part of its album series, fans will be treated..
British four-piece rock band Collateral are set to release their highly anticipated eponymous debut album on February 21st. The album is released through Roulette Media Records and distributed worldwide through Cargo. The band are looking to promote the album through several gigs in the near future, - touring with Jared James Nichols in February and..
Scottish rock band Anchor Lane released their debut full length album Casino on 31 January. They're a young band, but they've been developing this first album over quite some time, and they're understandably excited about it, and very happy that people can now hear their recorded material. The band is a classic four-piece, comprising singer..
The Alan Parsons Project can be seen in some ways as one of the more unlikely successes of the late-‘70s and early ‘80s. Indeed, just as punk was, supposedly, sweeping the prog dinosaurs away (and undoubtedly making that genre much harder to succeed in for quite some time), along came this collective, named after a..
Supreme Southern Rock icons The Outlaws, one of the most influential and best-loved bands of the genre, have lined up the release of their stonking new studio album, Dixie Highway, on Steemhammer / SPV on February 28th. The title of the album pays homage to the first vital long distance route created between the Midwest..
The title track of The Other Side is 18 minutes long, occupying a full side on the vinyl version, and has all the characteristic trademarks that will probably make it a genuine Nektar classic. I recall a football commentator once saying that everyone remembers the teams that make it to any big cup final but..

I think you can look at many, if not most of the Jethro Tull albums, as containing elements of progressive rock - not necessarily prog, which is a bit more fanciful, but progressive rock. In November 2019, Ian Anderson announced that in September and October 2020, he’d be playing a series of eleven dates across..
I can’t honestly say I had a conversation with Syd Barrett. We had a few shots at it, but it really didn’t work... “I have often said, I wish Relayer wasn’t called Relayer, I wish it was called Gates of Delirium,” muses the artist Roger Dean, sitting at a huge wooden table in a large..
