I believe it's PB's fourth studio album, after Peace Among The Ruins, The Lost Art Of Time Travel, and Invisible Places. I love their music. It straddles the line between heavy rock and roll and progressive rock. Saw them perform in 2008 at CalProg cool

Just a little quotation. wink "After 2 full studioalbums and one EP the band returns with their latest effort Relic Of The Modern World" soon to be released".

I e-mailed Jonas Reingold and told him about all the great reviews I've been hearing from my friends overseas regarding TFK's European tour. I asked if the band would consider touring America next year. He replied.....


Yeah, been looking into some possibilities to play overseas 2013, more to
follow...

Jonas



Sounds like there's some hope for a U.S. tour!

THE TANGENT - ANNOUNCEMENT 10/10/2012



Hello everyone. I'm really sorry to have to make this awful announcement but, after many months of trying not to, I am going to have to dissolve the current line-up of The Tangent. There are a number of complex and personal reasons why I have to do this, but top of the list, head and shoulders above all reasons is the continuing financial impracticality of running the band in its current state.

As a result of the current economic situation, logistical problems (250 miles between members) and other overriding commitments, this whole Summer we met once to play the Celebr8 concert, and once at a Maschine gig. We haven't recorded or rehearsed together since July 7. Along with that are numerous other issues far too complex to recount here.

The Tangent until now have managed to exist as a 100 percent professional band since 2003. This has been my living, and I've had to fight to stay alive against many competitors. The huge huge number of bands coming into this arena now, along with the the public's acceptance of piracy as the norm means that I have less and less money to finance anything like tours. I chose Progressive Rock Music as my life's work out of love, not desire for success. The choice was guaranteed to fail, from the moment I chose this path in the late 70s. The fact that we got as far as we did is testament to a success that some folks dream of. I'm proud of our track record, what we accomplished and how we accomplished it.

We've seen the world, we've played from Moscow to RoSfest, from Spain to Sweden, from Quebec to Parma. We've sold records to 100 and more countries. Without electronic pestering, without vote canvassing we've had the opportunity to stand at the top, yet never look down on anyone. We only had disagreements with a couple of other bands in all the many gigs and festivals we've played. We've shared our "headline" dressing rooms with other bands, we've refused to sign contracts that call other bands "support". We've stuck around to watch the whole festival rather than just appear for our slot. We've worked out how to do the fastest sound check on earth to make sure everyone else gets a turn. We played shorter sets when the festival was running late. We've seen every gig we do with another band as an evening of entertainment rather than our own showcase. A couple of times that attitude has been abused, but for the most part it's worked.

NOW

While of course I wish to apologise to all friends and supporters of the band who will surely be disapointed by this sudden announcement just before some scheduled gigs, of all the people I wish to apologise to, it's IO Earth. They are a true "heart and soul" investment band who work their bollocks off to do what they do. One stressful night in Leicester they managed to save the day for The Tangent and it makes me kick myself that I have to let them down on a tour that they enthusiastically promoted and worked hard for. I have spoken about this with them and in place of the full Tangent show, Guy Manning and I will do 4 special one off shows with IO Earth on all those dates. This set is well overdue. The set will feature songs from our intertwining careers which reach back over 25 years and will be rehearsed here at home making the trip at least possible if not profitable. I sincerely hope Tangent fans will still support the events and help to make this a profitable tour for IO Earth and the fantastic promoters that risk everything to keep prog alive in the UK.

THE FUTURE

People who know our songs know that "the future finds you" rather than any other way around. It's ironic, but during this very difficult and stressful time I have been writing some of the most ambitious music in the band's history. I hope to release Tangent album number 7 next year. Other than a few demo parts I never had the chance to get anyone from the band onto the recordings. I intend to find musicians who can help me complete this recording and I hope that with those musicians I can build the essence and workable framework of a new Tangent closer to home and thereby more practical.. The Y-Prog festival date next year is still in my diary and I fully intend to honour that commitment. Luke and Dan will of course continue the development of their excellent band Maschine and I wish them every success for the future.

THE PAST

At this crucial point I need to stress that all musicians involved since the inception of the UK band, (in order of appearance) Guy Manning, Jonathan Barrett, Theo Travis, Paul Burgess, Mike Gilbourne, Luke Machin, Tony Latham, Nick Rickwood & Dan Mash have provided the best moments of the Tangent's career to date. Sally Collyer has been a true brick in organising everything. All of them have been amazing, highly skilled and enthusiastic players and to lose them in this horrible way is heartbreaking. It is with seriously twisted lip that I remember that flying Beardfish in from Sweden on Ryanair to play with The Tangent at Summers End 2008 cost less money than it costs the current Tangent line-up to meet in London.

THE FUTURE NOW

I believe that I have earned the mandate to continue releasing music under the name The Tangent hopefully without the hurls of "tribute band" levelled at some bands who don't have the 'right' player. I accept that for many people the name has now become synonymous with the people currently in the band but I beg to suggest that the music has a continuity since that first album 10 years ago. The Swedish band had to be dissolved owing to running costs and impracticalities in 2008, and it now appears that the same thing has to happen here. I'll be rebuilding the Tangent. For now, I'll keep you posted on developments - there are over 2 hours of music written for the Tangent name already. This is an ongoing story, as it always has been.

Best to all

Andy

Sad news about The Tangent, but understandable. sad

Andy seems like a nice guy, and I love the music that he and both Tangent lineups have released over the years. I'll continue to listen as long as he's still writing music.

'If you have been affected by events in this press release, ring this helpline now'.
grin

I had the regulation complaint from my boss last week - wonder if Andy went to all the people he was about to dump with a cup of tea and a Lidl Battenburg cake? Wonder if all these ex-Tangent members are good at spreading Lidl margarine on crackers and waiting around like a spare part while my boss yaks on the mobile phone for hours?

An episode of Trollied featured the firing of Leighton by Lorraine after he turned off a freezer in the belief he was doing something for the environment. The after-effects should have carried an 'additional script by Andy Tillison and a certain arts organisation boss'.

In May, Galahad released their umpteenth (well, tenth or so) album, Battle Scars. it certainly wasn't a bad effort - I'd expect quite a few here would love it.

Somewhat surprisingly, perhaps, the group has now released yet another new album.

It's called Beyond The Realms of Euphoria, which frankly sounds a little dodgy. Worse, the cover is enough to make a grown man grab his comfort blanket.

But, but - the music on this is absolutely gorgeous. There are certainly shades of other "neo-progressive" bands to be found (especially, perhaps, IQ), but that doesn't detract for an instant from the fact that this is very good stuff indeed.

To my mind, this is much more adventurous than Battle Scars, much less run-of-the-mill prog, and altogether much more worthwhile.

For years, Galahad have been known by many as a "second tier" prog band. No more; not for me.

In fact, Euphoria is simply one of the better albums of the year.

NEW ITEMS NOW IN STOCK
www.progrock.co.uk

GALAHAD - Beyond The Realms Of Euphoria - GBP 10.99
This is the second new studio album to be released this year from established English progressive rock band Galahad. Recorded, engineered and mixed by Karl Groom (Threshold) at Thin Ice studios in Surrey. ‘Beyond The Realms Of Euphoria’, Galahad’s eighth studio album, shows the band treading similar water to that of ‘Battle Scars’ which was released earlier in 2012 but with a few additional and unexpected twists and turns.

MYSTERY - The World Is A Game - GBP 10.99
Two years after the very successful album One Among The Living, Canadian band MYSTERY is back with their seventh album, featuring Benoit David on vocals, following touring and recording two albums with legendary band YES. This new CD also features Nick D’Virgilio (Spocks Beard, Tears for Fears, Genesis) on drums. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

MOON SAFARI - Lover's End (Part III) EP - GBP 7.99
Superb EP from Sweden's Moon Safari! "Lover's End 3" is a perfect blend of "Lover's End 1/A Kid Called Panic" with "The Other Half of the Sky," the two epics from their two previous releases. At over 24 minutes this has everything that you could hope for from Moon Safari - emotion, melody, beautiful vocal harmonies and superb musicianship.

JADIS - See Right Through You - GBP 10.99
After a hiatus of 6 years, Jadis have finally released a new album, "See Right Through You", their first since 2006's Photoplay. The new album features all the Jadis trademarks - great song writing, and great melodic guitar work.

MAGENTA - Live: On Our Way To Who Knows Where (2 CD) - GBP 11.99
A two disc live set, with over 100 minutes of music, featuring songs from every album, with four from the current album ”Chameleon”. Includes a bonus studio recording of “When We Were Young” which is available on CD for the first time.

PRESTO BALLET - Relic Of The Modern World - GBP 10.99
"Relic Of The Modern World" is a truly enjoyable piece of classic Prog played, recorded and produced in the old-fashioned way - using an analogue tape machine, analogue synthesizers, real Hammond organ and real Mellotron sounds. The Prog retro feel is more American than that coming out of the UK at the time, and fans of the likes of Kansas, Styx and Rush will find much to enjoy in "Relic Of The Modern World", with some great instrumental interplay present amongst the melodic hooks.

ALAN REED - First In A Field Of One - GBP 9.99
Alan Reed - for 25 years the voice of Scots Progressive Rock legends Pallas - unveils his first album as a solo artist. 'First in a Field of One' is a unique collection of songs that provide the perfect setting for the unmistakable timbre of Alan's voice. The album embraces a number of musical flavours - from Celtic folk, world music, and even jazz; - held together by strong song writing and a passionate sense of identity. Band includes Mike Stobbie (ex Pallas) - Keyboards, Scott Higham (Pendragon) - Drums and percussion, Jeff Green - lead guitars on 'Kingdom..' and 'Darkness..', Kalle Wallner (RPWL) - lead guitar on 'Never Too Late', Christina Booth (Magenta) - additional vocals.

MANGALA VALLIS - Microsolco - GBP 10.99
Seven years after "Lycanthrope", "Microsolco" is the highly anticipated new album by Mangala Vallis. It's been a long time since the band's last album, during which many things have happened. Bernardo Lanzetti (vocals) and Riccardo Sgavetti (bass player) both left the band, with Roberto Tiranti, the extraordinarily gifted singer and bassist joining. The typical soundscapes and style of Mangala Vallis are all there, but there's room for a little more "rock". The versatile voice of Tiranti interprets it wonderfully, in an album that continues the stylistic groove pattern set with the first two albums. This is a release that will certainly please lovers of good prog rock!

GALAHAD - Year Zero (2 CD 10th Anniversary Edition) - GBP 10.99
The fifth studio album by Galahad, originally released in 2002. The original release of the CD has been unavailable for several years, but has now been remastered for this new edition, to coincide with its 10th anniversary. This release includes a bonus CD of a live concert from 2002. Packaged in a digipak, this is a great re-issue!

TWELFTH NIGHT - Live And Let Live - the definitive edition (2 CD) - GBP 11.99
THE classic Twelfth Night release! The final gig with Geoff Mann in its entirety! Recorded over 2 nights at London's Marquee Club, and originally released in a reduced form on vinyl, this is the first time that the whole concert has been released. Twelfth Night performed 15 pieces of music on both 4th and 5th November 1983. Only 6 of these were recorded to multi-track and mixed for the original vinyl album. However for this Definitive Edition the entire set has been reconstructed, in the actual running order, using the best available sources from those two nights. This is intended to be a definitive edition of what is perhaps Twelfth Night’s best-loved album: the best available source material has been used for each track, but as you will hear it’s not perfection … think of the flaws as ‘scratches in fine leather’…

RIVERSEA - Out Of An Ancient World - GBP 9.99
Excellent debut CD with guests musicians from Mostly Autumn and others.

MANNING - Akoustik - GBP 8.99
New studio CD from Manning with excellent acoustic interpretations of tracks from the extensive Manning back catalogue. In a card sleeve with a 4 page booklet.

KARNATAKA - New Light: Live In Concert (various formats)
GBP 12.99 (Blu-ray) / GBP 11.99 (DVD) / GBP 10.99 (2 CD)
New Light features tracks from the band's back catalogue including the award winning (Best International Album – World Web Awards Italy) 2010 studio album The Gathering Light, a symphonic rock masterpiece but also previously unreleased versions of the traditional Celtic classic "Lagan Love" and new song "My Love". Hayley Griffiths' breathtaking vocals clearly illustrate why she was handpicked by Michael Flatley himself to perform in the Celtic phenomena Riverdance and Lord Of The Dance. Her effortless transformation to rock vocalist brings that magical something extra to the band’s unique symphonic sound.

NEAL MORSE - Momentum (Ltd. CD+DVD Mediabook) - GBP 13.99
NEAL MORSE - Momentum (Standard Edition CD) - GBP 11.99
'Momentum' has great Prog elements, hooky pop choruses, intricate vocal weaving, blistering musicianship and beautiful melodies. With its surprising directness, depth and pure Prog exhilaration, 'Momentum' is quite possibly the ultimate Neal Morse album.

www.progrock.co.uk

MOSTLY AUTUMN - The Ghost Moon Orchestra - GBP 10.99
Already regarded as one of the best albums Mostly Autumn has ever produced. The song writing, performance and production are superb, with Olivia Sparnenn’s vocals reaching new heights and featuring some of Bryan Josh’s best guitar work to date. There's a unity to the album, thematically, lyrically and harmonically - a complete piece of work.

STOLEN EARTH - A Far Cry From Home - GBP 9.99

GENTLE GIANT - I Lost My Head - The Chrysalis Years (1975 to 1980) (4 CD)
4CDs covering Gentle Giant’s Chrysalis albums plus many bonus tracks

EDEN SHADOW - Hail (EP)
Hail as a whole takes the listener through intense King Crimson and Tool inspired dark metal riff driven musical passages contrasted with moments of ethereal soundscapes and guitar/keyboard driven soaring melody lines inspired by the work of Progressive musicians of the 70’s to present (Andy Latimer/Eric Johnson) and influenced by a range of musical styles including jazz, orchestral, electronic and folk. Featuring Rob Reed of Magenta on 2 tracks.

DISTRICT 97 - Trouble With Machines - GBP 10.99
DISTRICT 97 - Hybrid Child - GBP 10.99
District 97 is the only Progressive Rock band in the world to feature an American Idol finalist and a Chicago Symphony Orchestra virtuoso cellist. The band was formed in the Fall of 2006 by drummer Jonathan Schang, keyboardist Rob Clearfield, bassist Patrick Mulcahy and guitarist Sam Krahn. The foursome from Chicago honed a no-holds barred style of Liquid Tension Experiment inspired Instrumental Rock before deciding the right vocalist was needed to complement their sound; enter 2007 American Idol Top 10 Female Finalist, Leslie Hunt. With a look, sound and stage presence comparable to a young Ann Wilson from Heart, Leslie's dynamic performances pushed the band into a new direction that forged a unique marriage between accessible, catchy vocal melodies and an adventurous instrumental prowess.

AYREON/Star One - Live On Earth (Re-Issue 2011 - 2CD + DVD) - GBP 14.99

BREATHING SPACE - Coming Up For Air - GBP 9.99
