John Hackett - New album plus live dates
« Thread started on: Sep 4th, 2017, 10:32am »
Duncan from the John Hackett Band here with things you might wish to know! (of course you might not, but that's a risk I'll just have to take..)
The band have been out and playing material from John's first two rock albums for over a year now. From the outset we started adding new material written by the band, and now have a full band album called "We Are Not Alone" coming out at the end of September on Esoteric/ Cherry Red Records. It features a full length studio disc plus a second disc recorded live at the Classic Rock Society in 2016 (see here).
Steve guests on a tune that talks about when the Hackett family emigrated to Canada for all of four months in 1957. The whole album reflects each members influences and heritage, pulling in a number of directions, as you'd hope any progressive album might.
We're also embarking on a number of live dates through this coming Harvest time and beyond: 9th Sept - Trinity Theatre, Tunbridge Wells 16th Sept - Seven, Leeds 14th Oct - AATMA, Manchester 28th Oct - The Cluny 2, Newcastle 11th Nov - Bodega, Nottingham
Additional dates are coming in the new year.
We'd love to see you!
