Reformed Asia Plan A New Album

June 14th, 2007 9:18am EDT
Asia
Rock super group Asia's original line-up is to record a new studio album after reforming last year. Yes star Steve Howe, the guitarist of the group, insists he and his band mates are working well together - and still have plenty of new music left to record.

He tells Billboard.com, "We're starting the process of recording, and we feel good about that, partly because we're getting on well and we think, 'Why not?' We're trying to make an album that isn't terribly predictable for us. We're not doing retrospective music; we're certainly going to try to show our histories but still have a s...

Fair To Midland's New Album, 'Fables From a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times is True,' Out June 12

April 3rd, 2007 2:30pm EDT
Fair to Midland
Founded in the quiet farm town of Sulphur Springs, Texas—"Where people still say 'please' and 'thank you,'" as its chamber of commerce notes—Fair to Midland have become one of the most idiosyncratic musical forces in the Lone Star State. But as singer Darroh Sudderth—who rounds out FTM's current lineup with guitarist Cliff Campbell, drummer Brett Stowers, bassist Jon Dicken, and keyboardist/electronics manipulator Matt Langley—explains, idiosyncrasy also helps give the band its internal power.

"For the most part, our musical tastes are completely different," Suddereth begins. "All of...

Rush
Progressive rock ("prog") is an ambitious, eclectic, and often grandiose style of rock music which arose in the late 1960s principally in England, reaching the peak of its popularity in the early 1970s, but continuing as a musical form to this day. Progressive rock was largely a European movement, and drew most of its influences from classical music and jazz fusion, in contrast to American rock, which was influenced by rhythm & blues and country, although there are notable exceptions in the New World such as Kansas and Rush — considered by many to be the finest examples of the form.
