Kansas release clips from The Prelude Implicit


Kansas have released the first teaser clips from upcoming album The Prelude Implicit.

Hear nearly four minutes of music via a band promo page.

Their follow-up to 2000’s Somewhere To Elsewhere arrives on September 23, featuring 10 all-new tracks co-produced by guitarists Richard Williams and Zak Rizvi with drummer Phil Ehart.

Confirming the launch date last month, Williams said: “This is definitely a Kansas album. Whether it’s the trademark prog epic The Voyage Of Eight Eighteen, the biting rock of Rhythm In The Spirit, or the mindful ballad The Unsung Heroes, there’s something on his album for every kind of Kansas fan.

“After years of pent-up creativity, the entire band is proud of The Prelude Implicit.”

Kansas begin a North American tour in September, marking the 40th anniversary of classic album Leftoverture.

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 (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) 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.
