Downes Braide Association stream Machinery

Geoff Downes and Chris Braide have premiered their lyric video for latest track Machinery Of Fate via Prog.

It’s taken from second Downes Braide Association album Suburban Ghosts, which arrives on November 6 via Cherry Red Records.

Braide recently said: “It’s an album about isolation and loneliness in small-town suburbia. Now everyone has long gone, you’re haunted by images of those former frost-covered school gates, the laughter of children in the park and the lovers you once loved – the alternative life you could have lived.”

Suburban Ghosts – the follow-up to 2012’s Pictures Of You – is available for pre-order now.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
