Steve Hackett Surrender Of Silence

The songs on the new album were written by Steve, his wife Jo and Roger King. Musicians on this record are Roger King (keyboards, programming and orchestral arrangements), Rob Townsend (sax, clarinet), Jonas Reingold (bass), Nad Sylvan (vocals) and Craig Blundell (drums) are supplemented by Phil Ehart and Nick D'Virgilio (drums), the vocal talents of Amanda Lehmann, Durga and Lorelei McBroom, Christine Townsend (violin, viola), Malik Mansurov (Tar) und Sodirkhon Ubaidulloev (Dutar).

Steve says: "Lockdown cobwebs are blown away in one fell-swoop here! With the monster rhythm section of Jonas, Craig, Nick and Phil along with Rob's soaring sax and bass clarinet, Nad, Amanda and myself on vocals, Roger's darkly powerful organ and my guitar, we plunge full-pelt into that wild release of energy. It's a 'no holds barred' album, riding that wave, unleashing those demons, dreams and nightmares, all crashing together over the shore.
I enjoyed the power of this album allowing my guitar to scream in joy and rage... and once again flying across those oceans to distant lands. It's terrific to connect creatively with musicians from far flung places, particularly when we've all been unable to meet. We all have a voice in our cacophony of sound and we cry out together in the
Surrender of Silence!"

The press sheet also says: Hackett's vocals have never been bettered and his duet with Amanda Lehmann adds emotion to Scorched Earth a lament for the environmental horrors facing our planet. Throughout Hackett's guitars add a rich tapestry of colour with soaring solos and intricate weaving melodies. The journey takes them from the classical orchestrations of Russia (Natalia) to the plains of Africa (Wingbeats) to mysterious Easte shores (Shanghai To Samarkand), all via the ocean's depths (Relaxation Music for Sharks (featuring feeding frenzy)). The Devil's Cathedral pools the talents of Hackett's entire touring band and features King's atmospheric Gothic organ and a powerhouse rhythm display from Blundell and Reingold.

Surrender Of Silence can be preordered in early July.
