I admire the tenacity of the band Asia. They are very committed to the longevity of their music and global audience.
Asia announced today that they are assembling a 30 year anniversary world tour. Asia will also release a new studio album “XXX” with the original line-up: Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Carl Palmer & John Wetton on July 3rd in the US.
Their Connecticut dates later in the year include The Ridgefield Playhouse on October 23rd and Mohegan Sun on October 25th.
The new album, produced by Mike Paxman, has been hailed as Asia’s best album since its classic early 80s releases. The album will be released on CD, collector’s edition CD/DVD (featuring new music videos and behind the scenes footage), and on a limited edition vinyl.
The album’s first single, “Face on the Bridge,” will be available for download on May 14 and is already streaming online.
The Roger Dean, Year of the Water Dragon artwork for the new album and tour is stunning.
