Other Bands / New Yes Album...

Will be called "Fly From Here" according to Chris Squire and is named after the main track (re working of the Drama tour track maybe?).

Apparently due in July. Trevor Horn & Geoff Downes involved too :?

Sounds like it will be a Drama style recording.

in May, Neal's new prog rock epic "Testimony 2" will be released. Although further details such as track list, cover, etc. aren't known yet, there is reason to rejoice: A month after the release Neal Morse & Band will go on tour again. They will not only play at the High Voltage Festival in London, but also present the new album in numerous concerts across Europe. It is Neal's longest solo tour to date.

All details and constantly updated tour dates can be found here: ... =1&lang=en

    New Studio CD, First In Nearly A Decade, Slated For 2011

    HOLLYWOOD, CA (October 29, 2010) - Grammy Award winners YES, one of the most influential and ground-breaking progressive rock 'n' roll bands, today announced the signing of a new worldwide recording deal with the Italian-based record label, Frontiers Records. Songs such as "Roundabout", "I've Seen All Good People", "Owner Of A Lonely Heart", and countless others, have served to place the group upon the pantheon of rock 'n' roll history. But history is still yet to be written, because Steve Howe, Chris Squire and Alan White, along with Oliver Wakeman (Rick Wakeman's son) and new lead singer Benoit David, will enter the studio to record the group's first new CD in a decade. It is anticipated for release before Summer 2011.

    Frontiers Records President Serafino Perugino said: "I am truly honored and excited to have these Rock and Roll pioneers on the label. YES have written some fabulous pages in the history of this music and I look forward to keep on writing new exciting chapters with them!"

    "Having the two new guys in the line-up has inspired the impetus behind the need for YES to return to the studio," explains Chris Squire, while Steve Howe adds, "The new lineup has shown that we can operate well as a touring band, so now to expand that to recording would broaden our repertoire and the inclusion of Oliver and Benoit on new recordings will show a new leaf in YES music's continuing development."

    One of the most popular concert attractions of all-time YES's remarkable career has served to re-define the boundaries of rock. Proving to be a dominant force for more than four decades, YES has sold over 33 million albums worldwide. Their symphonic use of sound and innovative musical style has made each of the group's players are virtuosos in their own right.
    Other Bands / Yes to record new album?

    According to Steve Howe, the current line up of Yes are going to record a new album. Here's what he has to say:

    We're planning to start recording some music in October together. We hope to finish up by early next year, then we would think there would be something out next summer. No guarantees, but there's a feeling that we're going to move on to it. We've been writing material, we've been talking to producers, and basically we think we've got something happening.

    Will this include Jon Anderson?

    It won't include Jon Anderson. Benoit David is our new vocalist from Canada. Basically, it works, it's practical, it's friendly. It's very constructive and it's working. We can't keep going thinking we're going to go back to something. Back is old. Back is problem. Back is baggage. Forward is adventurous and revealing. We say to people that this is the Yes that's working. This is the working Yes. You can have all the other lineups you like in your mind, but this is the line up that actually goes out and does the work. We're the perpetuation, the continuation, and the saga of Yes.

    It seems that you can download the latest Yes Tour concerts from The question is, considering Jon Anderson isn't on vocals, should I bother or not? At a price of £10.95, it's not too bad, but what to do :?

    Announcements / The Point in Cardiff has closed
    April 20, 2009, 11:17:38 AM
    Absolutely gutted to hear that this venue has closed. Seen so many great bands there, it is a sad day. Here's what's posted on their web site.

    To all customers, promoters, fans, bands and supporters of The Point Cardiff Bay

    It is with deep regret that we announce the closure of the venue today. On 27th February 2009 the Director of the Point Cardiff Bay Limited signed the appropriate notices to call a meeting of creditors pursuant to S98 Insolvency Act 1986.

    A number of factors have contributed to this situation. Many of you will be aware that during 2008 we began receiving noise complaints from one or two neighbours that had moved into the new apartments that have been built next to the venue. After some difficult negotiations with the Cardiff City Council we undertook a huge amount of work to soundproof the venue in an attempt to secure its future. While that has largely been successful, the burden of the debt that we took on, together with greater restrictions in our banking facilities and more difficult trading conditions in the last few months, as well as the loss of revenue whilst the refurbishment works were undertaken, has meant we are unable to meet our current liabilities and have been left with no option but to seek voluntary liquidation.

    Many people have put their heart and soul in turning the Point into the magical venue that it is and we have received huge and loyal support over the years from fans and bands alike. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for that support. It is a very sad day for us and for the live music scene in Cardiff.

    If you have bought tickets for shows in advance, we must advise you to seek compensation from your credit card company. If you are a supplier to the Point, there will be further news about a creditors meeting in due course.
