    New Jim Matheos (Fates Warning) side project announced

    I'm a huge Jim Matheos fan and saw this shared on Fates Warning's FB page today:

    Jim Matheos, founding guitarist of legendary US progressive metallers Fates Warning,announces the release of the debut album from his new Ambient Instrumental Rock project Tuesday The Sky. The first full-length album ‘Drift’ is set for release on June 30th, 2017, and sees Matheos expanding the boundaries of his sound ever further.

    The album also features the talents of God Is An Astronaut’s drummer Lloyd Hanney, who provides a rhythmic backbone that is at once punchy, precise and restrained when necessary. Other guests include long-time OSI collaborator and former Dream Theater member Kevin Moore who plays keys on two tracks, and Anna-Lynne Williams (Trespassers William, Lotte Kestner) who provides ethereal vocals (of the non-verbal kind) on two other songs.

    “Drift” (49:04) / Tracklisting:
    1. Today The Sky (04:15)
    2. Kite (05:10)
    3. Vortex Street (04:46)
    4. It Comes In Waves (04:30)
    5. Dyatlov Pass (07:29)
    6. Far And Away (04:19)
    7. Westerlies (05:27)
    8. Roger, Gordo (04:06)
    9. The Rowing Endeth (04:31)
    10. Drift (04:09)

    The album will be released as special edition CD, black LP + CD & digital download.
    Further details will be revealed soon.
    There's nothing at the linked page right now but here's the link: Tuesday The Sky

    Ambient Instrumental, huh? Hey, Matheos rules, I'll check it out.

    oh this sounds awesome! I will be picking this up I like the more ambient type songs on the the FWX album a lot so this will be right up my alley.

    First track dropped today:



    I don't like that warbling guitar sound at the beginning and the song isn't mind blowing or overly complex but- it definitely has some Matheos DNA and isn't that bad, IMO.

    Agreed - enjoyable, nothing in particular to latch on to. Kind of like a mundane Explosions in the Sky by a musician I respect enough to hear out. Also, does the drum stereo spectrum sound exaggerated to you?
