Rothery trails solo Ghosts album

Steve Rothery has released a trailer offering five minutes of music from his debut solo album The Ghosts Of Pripyat.

The record features guest appearances by Steve Hackett and Steven Wilson. It was funded via a successful Kickstarter campaign, which the Marillion guitarist admitted exceeded all his expectations.

Last month he made opening track Morpheus, featuring Hackett, available as a free download.

The Ghosts Of Pripyat is released on September 22. It’s available for pre-order in deluxe and standard editions, while a live album, recorded during the Steve Rothery Band’s second-ever show, is also available.

He tours the UK in November:

Nov 05: Glasgow Oran Mor

Nov 06: Manchester Band On The Wall

Nov 07: Bilson Robin 2

Nov 08: London Bush Hall

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.
