SYNTH-PROGGERS KYROS RELEASE COVERS ALBUM ‘RECOVER’
SYNTH-PROGGERS KYROS RELEASE COVERS ALBUM ‘RECOVER’Featuring songs by Rush, Genesis, Frost*, Haken, Jukebox The Ghost, Devin Townsend, Imogen Heap, Sordid Pink and Giraffe! Also with special guests John Mitchell, Ray Hearne and and Andy Robison.
Kyros will return to the live circuit throughout August and September to perform some of the tracks not just in isolation, but in a live setting.
Peter expresses excitement for hitting the road again. “Playing our new songs from ‘Celexa Dream’ and ‘UNO Attack’ sat in front of a screen for the ‘isolation gigs’ isn’t quite the same as performing before a crowd of music lovers. Finally it seems we’re going to be able to perform live in August and, needless to say, we’re all incredibly eager to get on with it. We haven’t played together for over a year and half and have only seen each other via Zoom calls, this simply isn’t good enough! The tour is going to be a blast, a rebirth even! A perfect opportunity to RECOVER from several months of separation.”
‘RECOVER’ is a selection of cover songs featuring special guests that the band recorded throughout lockdown last year, as well as some more choice cuts to add to the collection.
Joey says this about the album “The songs we wound up with were, essentially, a whittled down few from a huge list we all contributed to. We tried our best to pick songs that we thought would map onto our own style in interesting ways. As such, Recover is not a collection of perfectly faithful recreations, but rather, fun interpretations of some really great songs that we love. Now you can decide how much we did or did not butcher them.”
Some of the guests on the album include John Mitchell of Frost*/Lonely Robot, and Ray Hearne of Haken and Andy Robison of IHLO.
Standing as one of many bands that have adapted to a new professional landscape in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Isolation Sessions that resulted in ‘Celexa Streams’ became favourably viewed as an opportunity for Kyros fans to gather together with a shared love of the band’s music and to feel the support of a music based community throughout the pandemic.
This is the first musical output since singer and keyboard player of Kyros, Shelby Logan Warne, announced that she is transgender and currently undergoing transitioning. The overwhelming support from Kyros fans has instilled a new wave of motivation and creative inspiration for the four piece.
