Ian Anderson
(UK) / December 22, 2013

Forthcoming release:

A couple of weeks ago, Ian Anderson announced via the Jethro Tull website that a new album ”Homo Erraticus” would be released in April 2014. This will be followed by tours in the UK and USA, during which the album will be played in its entirety. “Homo Erraticus” will be a prog-rock concept album which, according to Anderson, "chronicles the weird imaginings of one Ernest T Parritt, as recaptured by the now middle-aged Gerald Bostock after a trip to Mathew Bunter’s Old Library Bookshop in Linwell village. Bostock and Bunter came across this dusty, unpublished manuscript, written by local amateur historian Ernest T. Parritt, (1873 -1928), and entitled Homo Britanicus Erraticus." Like "Thick as a Brick 2", "Homo Erraticus" is billed as an Ian Anderson solo album.

RECORDING COMPANIES:

We Do Band Stuff Promotion
(UK) / December 22, 2013

New releases:

  • Frost* – “The Rockfield Files”
  • Kompendium – “Elements”

    Two crucial releases for Prog Fans this Xmas:

    Prog Supergroup Frost* releases their brand new CD/DVD bundle "The Rockfield Files" through Cube Records (distributed via Tigermoth). Tigermoth are proud to handle the distribution of “The Rockfield Files”, the first ever official live Frost* DVD. This highly anticipated release finally captures a live Frost* performance at the world-famous Rockfield Studios near Monmouth, Wales. Fans of the band have been waiting many years for a live DVD; the wait is finally over… The package consists of 2 discs (1 x DVD plus 1 x CD) in a gate-fold digi-pack. The DVD’s main feature is a selection of tracks from the band’s first two albums captured on multiple cameras at Rockfield. This showcases the extensive talents of the band and their obvious and infectious enjoyment of playing together. There is also an option to view the tracks with short introductions from Jem Godfrey. This is followed by two bonus acoustic tracks performed by Mitchell and Godfrey at Mitchell’s Reading home, including ‘Lantern’ a previously unheard new song. Finally there is an in-depth interview in which Mitchell and Godfrey tackle a variety of diverse topics ranging from chords to confectionery.

    "Kompendium - Elements" is a brand new album of alternative versions and unreleased tracks from Rob Reed's award winning masterwork, "Beneath The Waves". Following the extraordinary success of the award winning "Beneath The Waves", Rob Reed has compiled a 2CD limited edition of unreleased tracks, demos, alternative versions and a complete instrumental mix of the original album entitled "Kompendium - Elements". "Elements" is the essential companion piece to the outstanding original album, able to stand on its own as a work of stunning beauty and maturity, but offering fans the chance to go deeper into the narrative and the musical vision of the original. Once again, the artwork of Geoff "War Of The Worlds" Taylor graces the cover of this collection. "Elements" includes a new version of the track ‘A Moment Of Clarity’, featuring vocalists Steve Balsamo and Tesni Jones.
