Frost* to issue Falling Satellites in May
Third album from prog heroes Frost* includes a 6-track, 32-minute suite
Frost* will release their third album in May, they've confirmed.
Jem Godfrey's crew will issue Falling Satellites on May 27, their first record in eight years and the follow-up to Experiments In Mass Appeal.
The album features 11 tracks, the last six of which form a 32-minute long suite. Guitar icon Joe Satriani guests on the record.
Godfrey says: “It’s been a long time coming, but we got there in the end. I think this is our strongest album to date and moves the sound forwards whilst still referencing what’s gone before.
"It’s also great to have finally co-written some songs with John Mitchell in a Frost* context. The end results were better than either of us could have imagined, we just can’t wait to get out and play it all live now.”
Godfrey is joined in Frost* by guitarist & vocalist Mitchell, drummer Craig Blundell and bassist Nathan King.
Falling Satellites will be available on limited edition CD mediabook, including two bonus tracks, gatefold 2LP + CD and as a digital download.
The band have also announced a run of UK tour dates kicking off in June.
