Franck Carducci's Torn Apart set for January release

Franck Carducci will release his second solo album in January.

The prog multi-instrumentalist releases Torn Apart on January 9. The follow-up to 2011’s Oddity features a guest appearance from former Genesis man Steve Hackett.

A trailer for the album has been made available, which shows Carducci and his collaborators at work in the studio.

Torn Apart was original scheduled for a late 2014 release, but this has been pushed back into the new year.

Carducci said previously: “I’m thrilled that it will feature a special guest performance by Mr Steve Hackett himself. No need to mention that a collaboration with one of my all-time heroes is more than a dream come true for me.”

Stef wrote close to 5,000 stories during his time as assistant online news editor and later as online news editor between 2014-2016. An accomplished reporter and journalist, Stef has written extensively for a number of UK newspapers and also played bass with UK rock favourites Logan. His favourite bands are Pixies and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Stef left the world of rock'n'roll news behind when he moved to his beloved Canada in 2016, but he started on his next 5000 stories in 2022.
