Tuesday The Sky - Launch "Vortex Street" single

Tuesday The Sky,the new Ambient Instrumental Rock project by Fates Warning guitarist Jim Matheos, will be releasing its debut album 'Drift' worldwide on June 30th, 2017 via InsideOutMusic.

A video clip directed by David Brodsky / MyGoodEye for the album's second single "Vortex Street" can be now seen here:

Jim Matheos checked in with the following comment about "Vortex Street"

""Vortex Street' was co-written with vocalist Anna-Lynne Williams and is a bit different from most of the songs on "Drift" in that the main focus is the vocals, as opposed to the more guitar centered material on the rest of the album. The basic outline of the song was written using the AdrenaLinn II to process the guitars and bass so that they, hopefully, don't sound like guitars anymore. Those ideas were sent to Anna-Lynne, who crafted the beautiful melody lines. The "chorus" was created by editing and processing some of the main vocal lines along with some alternate vocal ideas Anna-Lynne provided."

The previously released first single and album opening track "Today The Sky" can still be checked out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XITon_EBATA 

Tuesday The Sky and "Drift" sees Matheos expanding the boundaries of his playing and sound even further than ever before. "Drift" came together in the downtime between Fates Warning finishing "Theories Of Flight" and the beginning of the touring cycle, enabling Matheos to explore a type of atmospheric and instrumental music you might not expect of him. Taking cues from artists like Brian Eno, Boards Of Canada, Sigur Ros and Explosions In The Sky, he explores expansive textures and ambient electronica, as well as some of the most colossal riffs he has ever produced.

"Drift" also features the talents of God Is An Astronaut's drummer Lloyd Hanney, who provides a rhythmic backbone that is at once punchy, precise and restrained when necessary. Other guests include long-time OSI collaborator and former Dream Theater member Kevin Moore who plays keys on two songs as well as Anna-Lynne Williams (Trespassers William, Lotte Kestner), who provides ethereal vocals (of the non-verbal kind) on two other songs.

"Drift", whose cover artwork created by Jan Tomic can be seen above, will be released as special edition CD, black LP + CD & digital download. Here is the album's track-listing:

Did you know that?

Steve Jones of Sex Pistols loved to listen to Foreigner and Journey in the late 70´s but never admitted it to the others in the band.
