Here’s info on the latest from Circa: which features Billy Sherwood and Tony Kaye:
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the new album from progressive rockers CIRCA: “Valley of the Windmill”, which will be released on July 8th. The album is available for pre-order from both Amazon and iTunes.
CIRCA: is a Progressive Rock band formed by veteran musicians Tony Kaye (original YES keyboard and organ player) and Billy Sherwood (who took Chris Squire’s place in YES after his untimely passing in 2015 and who also previously served time in the progressive rock legends) and also features Ricky Tierney on bass and Scott Connor on drums.
CIRCA: was originally formed in 2007 by Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood. The band’s self-titled debut features YES drummer Alan White and Jimmy Haun on guitar. The follow-up, “CIRCA: Live” a special DVD set, archived the band’s first ever live performance.
In 2009, “CIRCA: HQ” was released with Jay Schellen on drums, followed by the release of “CIRCA: Overflow” a collection of bonus material from the first and second recording sessions, available only as a digital download.
“Valley of the Windmill” the new album, includes several extended length songs, and can be described as “super proggy,” with influences ranging from classic Yes and Gentle Giant, to Porcupine Tree and latter-day Marillion. An absolute must for all Prog Rock fans!
“It’s very exciting to know there’s a new CIRCA record coming out… We’ve been working long and hard on it and now we look forward to share it with everyone else,” says Billy Sherwood of “Valley of the Windmill.”
Sherwood’s latest solo record, entitled “Citizen”, was released in November of 2015 via Frontiers Music Srl. The album features several past and present YES members, including the last ever recorded performance from Chris Squire, as well as Steve Morse, Jordan Rudess, Alan Parsons, Steve Hackett and more.
