Nick Beggs has created a new band with an album due out in January 2016. You may remember him as the recent bassist for Steve Hackett, as well as being the bassist for Lifesigns who released an awesome debut album in 2012. He's also been Steven Wilson's bass player since 2011.

The MUTE GODS are a brand new band from the mind of renowned bassist, Chapman
stick player & vocalist Nick Beggs alongside drummer Marco Minnemann (Steven
Wilson), and long-time Steve Hackett collaborator & keyboardist Roger King.

Nick Beggs had this to say:
"The record has a number of moods. But overall, it's a rather disgruntled rant
at the dystopia we've created for ourselves and our children. The song:
'Swimming Horses' is a warning about the passing of time and the rising of
tides. 'Feed The Troll' is a dedication to all those who have too much time on
their hands.
The person who has helped me realize this record is Roger King. We worked
together for quite a few years in the Steve Hackett band and when I approached
him last year about producing, I was honoured and surprised when he agreed. His
strengths are my weaknesses and I believe we complement each other rather well.
But the public will have the final word on that.
After working extensively with the Steven Wilson band, I invited Marco Minnemann
to play drums for me. Although I have a couple of other guest drummers like:
Nick D'Virgilio and Gary O'Toole, Marco is playing on the majority of tracks. He
also added his genius with some sound modelling and guitar.
Sonically, you can expect an album that tips its hat in the direction of
alternative rock and pop"


With the track record these guys have, we can expect a pretty exciting album from this collaboration!

'Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me' is released on 22nd January 2016.

Track List [CD Digi-Pak]:
01. Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me (7:45)
02. Praying To A Mute God (5:06)
03. Nightschool For Idiots ?(6:00)
04. Feed The Troll ?(4:55)
05. Your Dark Ideas ?(4:41)
06. Last Man On Earth? (5:30) * Bonus Track *
07. In The Crosshairs (3:18)
08. Strange Relationship (6:10)
09. Swimming Horses? (7:05)
10. Mavro Capelo (5:10) * Bonus Track *
11. Father Daughter ?(4:09)

Spock's Beard has compiled a first 20 years collection to be released on November 20th, 2015.

There is also a new song written by Neal Morse that clocks in at around 20 minutes. Everyone that's been in the band over the years is included on this one.

Sounds like a great release!!

The fantastic progressive metal group Headspace has a new album coming out in February entitled 'All That You Fear Is Gone.'

The band was formed by Adam Wakeman (Rick's son). Lee Pomeroy is on bass (he has been touring as Steve Hackett's bassist on and off for the last couple of years). Damian Wilson on vocals and Adam Wakeman on keys, Pete Rinaldi on guitar and Adam Faulkner on drums.

From the album 'I Am Anonymous'

Eric Gillette, guitarist extraordinaire and multi-instrumentalist with The Neal Morse Band, is releasing his sophomore album entitled 'The Great Unknown' in May 2016. With him are two members of Haken on keys and bass.

Eric's debut album, 'Afterthought,' is amazing. He plays all the instruments. Over an hour of fabulous music.

Tangent News!!

Sorry to hear about Andy's heart attack, but glad he's back on his feet

See below for a letter from Andy Tillison and lots of new music!!


Dear all

Well, 2015 was an eventful and challenging year at Tangent HQ as you may or may not know, Andy suffered a heart attack and was out of action for a few months. Thanks to the support of music fans, friends, family and countless wonderful people in the NHS he has now been declared “fit as a fiddle” and we have lots of news for you! Below is a recent letter that Andy posted on The Tangent Facebook group, apologies for duplicating this message to those of you who have already seen it and many thanks to those of you who have already pre-ordered “Durch” but we are very aware that there are many who don’t use social networking sites so we wanted to make sure that everyone is kept in the loop:


“NEW MUSIC CD!

Thank you to everyone who liked and commented on Sally's recent posting regarding my status. I have been through a rough time with my health over the past 6 months but thanks to the devotion and skill of the NHS I now have bionic arteries which have started to push the blood back into the "you need to make some music" part of my brain. The heart attack was naturally a shock.. (not expected for a less than 70kg - 56 year old - vegetarian wholefoods eating – non-drinker - who gave up smoking 2 years ago) - and with the shock came a lot of depression, loss of interest in music, conversation and just about everything I was previously interested in. I've recently been allowed to return to work at my College, all I need to do now is convince the College to let me do something when I'm there - I feel at present that I'm running a career restricted by a Risk Assessment that someone has done.

Strangely, coming THROUGH all this, back into the daylight at the other side of the tunnel, I've found quite a lot of music that I have utterly no memory of writing. Scattered about on a few hard drives are a load of unfinished bits and bobs, and in a few cases fully fledged songs, one of which seems to be called "The Man Who Couldn't Lead Us Because He Didn't Want To Blow Up Other People On Our Behalf". I have NO IDEA what that one is about… I'll probably have to think of a better title.

NEW MUSIC

I'm pleased to announce the third in my solo ambient/electronica/anything else series - "Machte Es Durch". This is the German phrase for "Made It Through" and "Through" is what I hope I am. The album follows my 2007 album "Fog" and the 2010 "Murk". The album will feature instrumental music very much inspired by the music of Berlin School Electronica acts like T Dream, Redshift and Michael Hoenig and in fact a centrepiece of the album is a fully developed version of "Transient Loss" a piece written in honour of Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream who died in 2015. As with the two previous albums the music does deviate quite widely from the central style, extending from time to time into Tangent style territory as well as Jazz and other genres.

Durch is nearing compositional completion now and is should be (emphasis on "should") available on CD by the end of March. Pre-orders are available at www.thetangent.org now!! As usual. pre-orders will allow early listening to some of the pieces in various stages of development although this will begin in FEBRUARY as I don't have mixes I'm happy enough to play you right away. I utterly HATE having to say that your buying this album is crucially important to getting other projects up and running - as my half year of illness has very seriously emptied the coffers here at Tangent Towers, your support would be most welcome - because...
.
The release of Durch is the first of FOUR ongoing musical projects that I have been working on during the past few months. The others include (naturally) the 9th studio album by The Tangent - although I should say that that is some way off official commencement. More further down..

The second album by MULTIPLEX is however, a lot further advanced and this time will include more musicians than just myself. I have asked Luke Machin and Theo Travis to help me with this album and Steve Roberts (formerly of Godsticks and well known for his work with Magenta) is also in line for the drum stool on the album. For those of you who don't know about Multiplex, it is a Tangent side project far more focussed on Jazz Rock instrumental work and the first album was released to some nice response early in 2015. We will open pre-orders on that album quite soon in order to finance the recording.

Another album that is currently being recorded is altogether less predictable. It is a COVER VERSION of a concept album recorded originally in 1985 by another artist altogether. The original album was not recorded by a Prog related artist, however I always believed that it would make a terrific album in my chosen genre and I spent a lot of the long break that I've been forced to have, working out how to make this genius, predominantly acoustic album work as a full on symphonic Prog Rock concept album. The original album is not very well known - in fact REALLY obscure, although the various people who made it went on to global success with a career lasting 30 years. There's something to keep you guessing. At present my version of the album is fairly well advanced - however I haven't actually decided whether it's going to be a "one off" Tangent album or something that's a different project altogether. Depends who ends up working on it... and there is a good chance that some people originally involved will reprise their roles. The release is likely to be 2 separate CDs, released around a year apart

To return though to THE TANGENT - after 13 years working with that project, Jonas, myself, Theo and Luke have decided we'd like to do something a bit different. The album "A Spark In The Aether" was for us a bookend to the band's career so far. During these years the band has managed to maintain a position among the most popular current era Prog Rock bands. Of course, within that time many other artists have moved into the same arena and flourished - entirely deserved in many cases incidentally - so now we feel that we'd like to work on something a bit more risky, built more for our own sense of adventure than on poll topping. The aim will be to still create a narrative based musical landscape with a broader still range of influences ( I think I can claim that ours were already pretty broad) - this time the emphasis will NOT be on what people insist on calling "Retro Prog" but looking around us NOW at what we'd like to fuse into our music in the same ways as our ancestors were doing in 1969. Prog? of course! Rules? Out of the window!

Also In the pipeline is the forthcoming album by Karmakanic, on which I have played some organ (including on the epic track we played on tour in 2014) and I can also happily announce on a new track "Steer By The Stars" which Jonas Reingold and I wrote together - our first joint composition and hopefully the first of many for BOTH projects.

May I be seriously late in wishing everyone A HAPPY NEW YEAR, I hope to be a little more present on the Facebook page this next few months. Best wishes to all. ~ Andy”

Anderson / Stolt, the brand new duo of legendary YES vocalist and singer/songwriter Jon Anderson and progressive rock veteran Roine Stolt (The Flower Kings, Transatlantic), have announced the release of their collaborative album, Invention Of Knowledge, on June 24th via InsideOut Music.

Pre-order here https://www.burningshed.com/store/InsideOutMusic/product/523/7555/

Jon Anderson had this to say: ".....Music is always the driving force in my life... working with such a wonderful musician as Roine Stolt made the creation of this album very unique,we are very excited with the release of Invention of Knowledge."

Roine Stolt adds: "It is not aiming at being new YES music; just new music, modern and classical, rock and ethno, tribal and orchestrated, grooving and floating. Hopefully in the true spirit of "progressive" - leaning forward, surprising and also comforting with familiar run-arounds. We've been "inventing" as we go along - Jon is an endless source of new ideas. We've been bouncing ideas back and forth for months and as a result there are probably dozens of versions of these songs. It's been a very interesting and rewarding time and the result is just insanely detailed."

InsideOut label-head Thomas Waber comments: "I have been talking to Jon for ages about making an album of ‘YES music' - as Jon calls it - and Roine seemed like the perfect guy for him to work with. I am really happy that it has finally happened and I am also thrilled with the material they have come up with. I think it will please a lot of fans!"

The idea came to life swiftly off the back of a performance from Roine's band Transatlantic, and Jon Anderson on the Progressive Nation At Sea Cruise in 2014, and was initially instigated by InsideOut Music label boss Thomas Waber. The duo set about crafting new music in the spirit of early epic works such as Tales From Topographic Oceans, Awaken & Olias Of Sunhillow, but giving it a modern twist.

Written AND recorded over the course of 1 and a half years, the tracks have been in a state of constant change as Roine and Jon swapped and refined ideas by sending tracks to each other via the internet. In March 2015, an ensemble was put together by Roine to realize the music live in the studio. Joining him there was Tom Brislin (who played on the YES Symphonic tour) and Lalle Larsson on keys, Jonas Reingold and Michael Stolt on bass and Felix Lehrmann on drums. The sessions were also bolstered by appearances from Daniel Gildenlöw, Nad Sylvan, Anja Obermayer, Maria Rerych and Kristina Westas, who all provided backing vocals.
