    LANDMARQ announce they are parted company with Tracy Hitchings, after 20 years as lead vocalist. Whilst the band remains UK-based, Tracy has been living, and married, in Australia for the last three years. This has inevitably presented a range of logistical difficulties in keeping the band together and maintaining a long-distance working relationship. Landmarq is now actively seeking a new lead singer to join the group and become involved in the writing and recording of the next studio album and future gigs.

    DUKES OF THE ORIENT will release their self-titled debut album on February 23rd via Frontiers Music Srl. This band has its origins in 2007 as Asia Featuring John Payne, that continued on after Asia keyboardist Geoff Downes left to re-form the original 1982 line-up. John Payne recruited Erik Norlander to join Guthrie Govan, Jay Schellen, Jeff Kollman and Moni Scaria for tour dates in the US and initial recordings, some of which endured to appear on the Dukes of the Orient studio album... Following the death of original Asia vocalist, John Wetton, in early 2017, Payne and Norlander decided that these recordings should give birth to a new group, both out of respect for Wetton and for clarity with the Downes-led Asia.

    I'm here just to add something else about Rush, especially Neil Peart.
    This banner, hanging a few times along St. Paul Street, the main street in St. Catharines,
    is a celebration of Neil Peart and all that he has accomplished as a home-town boy.
    They have other local celebrities, but Neal is the only rocker.

    I'm seeing a lot of aquatic graphics for these recordings here,
    so I'm adding a photo of a painting I did.
    Hey! I'm a lead guitarist so I have to be artistic.

    Highly acclaimed for their unusual medieval sound & intricate instrumentation, flourished in the progressive rock heyday of the 70's, seminal British act GRYPHON are currently putting some finishing touches to their brand new studio album. The yet untitled CD-release is scheduled to Summer 2018.
