This is the the new project masterminded by producer, guitarist and vocalist John Mitchell (It Bites, Frost*, Arena).
Mitchell had this to say about the first full track to be released from the album:
“God vs Man, the human race seeks to control and overcome everything it comes into contact with. Just because science and progress says we can doesn’t mean we should”.
A teaser for the album was also recently launched and you can find that here.
Backed by the storming rhythm section of Nick Beggs on bass and Craig Blundell on drums, the album also sees guest appearances from Peter Cox (Go West), Nik Kershaw, Steve Hogarth (Marillion), Heather Findlay, Kim Seviour (Touchstone), Jem Godfrey (Frost*) as well as narration provided by British actor Lee Ingleby (Master & Commander, Harry Potter).
John Mitchell had this to say about the project:
“I’d long thought about doing an album where I could have total control from start to finish with the music, lyrics, production, and choosing who I wanted to contribute – expanding from the idea of just a solo album. Musically, this album is very proggy, but more about atmosphere than technical expertise, inspired by my love of science fiction and interest in the evolution of the human race.”
The track-listing for the album is as follows:
God Vs. Man
The Boy In The Radio
Why Do We Stay?
A Godless Sea
Are We Copies?
The Red Balloon
