The full promo is set to arrive on April 17, with the track taken from the band’s upcoming studio album The Absence Of Presence which will launch on June 26 through InsideOut Music.

Speaking previously, frontman Ronnie Platt said: “We are really excited for our fans to be able to get a taste of what is to come from The Absence Of Presence. I think people will really be surprised by the album. 

The Absence of Presence shows the band firing on all cylinders.”

Guitarist and producer Zak Rizvi added: “We are really proud of the album. Making a new Kansas album sets a very high musical standard that is expected from our fans. From rockers, to progressive epics, to ballads, there is something on this recording for everybody.” 

The Absence Of Presence will be released on CD, 2LP, limited edition deluxe CD/Blu-ray and on digital and streaming platforms.
