BLAZE BAYLEY BRAND NEW ALBUM AND WORLD TOUR DETAILS ARE HERE 4th January 2017
Blaze Bayley's 2017 World Tour dates are in and the Tamworth Terror will also be releasing a brand new album, the ninth studio opus of his solo career.
The new studio album is aptly titled 'Endure And Survive (Infinite Entanglement Part II)' and as expected, it's an exciting and enthralling sequel to his 2016 release 'Infinite Entanglement# which was the first of a trilogy of releases on Blaze's a sci-fi concept and storyline.
Blaze spoke to us at length last year regarding 'Infinite Entanglement' and many other subjects and here's the conversation in full. This tells you all you need to know about the concept and where Blaze plans to take it.
'Endure And Survive' is set for release on 3rd March 2017 via Blaze Bayley Recording and will be accompanied by a world tour totalling some 120 shows. The European leg of the tour takes place principally between February and June 2017. After a small number of summer shows, Blaze will then go to the United States and Canada during August/September. It's also planned to take the tour to Latin America in 2018.
Throughout this world tour, Blaze will be backed by his main recording and touring musicians, picked from British Metal heroes Absolva and including Chris Appleton (guitar, backing vocals), Martin McNee (drums), Karl Schramm (bass, backing vocals).
The 'Endure And Survive' album also contains a talented array of collaborators; Luke Appleton (Iced Earth/Absolva) - backing vocals, Michelle Sciarrotta - nylon acoustic, backing vocals, voice actor, Jo Robinson - backing vocals, Mel Adams - backing vocals, Liz Owen – backing vocals, Thomas Zwijsen – nylon acoustic, Anne Bakker – violin, backing vocals, Corvin Bahn (Uli Jon Roth) – accordion, Aine Brewer – voice actor, Rob Toogood – voice actor, backing vocals.
The spectacular album artwork has been completed by Andreas Sandberg, with additional images from Christopher Steenstrup who is also working on a Blaze Bayley video game.
The album was recorded between October and December 2016 at Robannas Studios, Birmingham, produced by Blaze Bayley and Chris Appleton, mixed and engineered by Miguel Seco, mastered by Ade Emsley (Iron Maiden, Tank, Phil Campbell). As with the previous record the song-writing has been a collaboration between Blaze, Chris Appleton and Michelle Sciarrotta.
