Rush-inspired 4Front to Release Malice in Wonderland on March 1st
Update: 4-Front have released Big Scary Monster; the first track off of Malice in Wonderland. You can check it out HERE.
4Front, the instrumental progressive rock band, are set to release their third album - Malice in Wonderland - on March 1st, 2012. The drummer of 4Front is none other than Joe Bergamini who is also the senior drum editor with Hudson Music and co-producer of Neil's Taking Center Stage: A Lifetime of Live Performance DVD. Joe was also Neil's interviewer on the instructional DVD.
Heavily influenced by Rush, as well as other progressive greats such as Dream Theater, Kansas, Symphony X, The Dixie Dregs, and Genesis, 4Front excels in combining "the classic sound of prog with many other stylistic elements to create cinematic soundscapes that will capture your imagination."
Included in Malice in Wonderland is a tribute track to Rush entitled Many Places in a Rush. Additionally, the cover art for the album was designed by none other than Hugh Syme - Rush's long-time artist.
Ordering information for the album is available at Joe's website - www.joebergamini.com. Some time after the official March 1st release, the album will also be made available digitally via iTunes, Amazon and other online outlets.
