Kansas has announced the release of their new studio album, The Prelude Implicit, due out September 23rd. The album, the prog-rock band’s first new release in 16 years, features 10 new tracks written by the band and co-produced by guitarist Zak Rizvi, drummer Phil Ehart and guitarist Richard Williams.
“This is definitely a KANSAS album,” remarks Williams. “Whether it is the trademark Prog epic like ‘The Voyage of Eight Eighteen,’ biting rocker such as ‘Rhythm in the Spirit,’ or mindful ballad like ‘The Unsung Heroes,’ there is something on this album for every kind of KANSAS fan. After years of pent-up creativity, the entire band is very proud of ‘The Prelude Implicit.’”
The release of the new album comes 40 years after the release of Kansas’ breakthrough album, Leftoverture. The band will debut songs off “The Prelude Implicit” this fall when they embark on their Leftoverture 40th Anniversary tour.
