After signing with Metal Blade Records, the prog rock masters in 3 have announced a new album dubbed The Ghost You Gave To Me. It is their sixth album in 12 years and is due out in October, according to the pre-order from Metal Blade.
Singer Joey Eppard talked about the new album:
“The songs told us where to go and the instrumentation followed. We knew this record would be our most progressive but it would be on our terms, and in our own way. As always songwriting and melody are the driving forces behind the sounds capes we generate. I think the biggest challenge was to rise to the occasion lyrically with so many musical scene changes. What I found was that I had to let go and allow the words and melody to be as creative and original as the music, if not more so. In a progressive situation this can be time consuming and indeed the bulk of my efforts were focused on exceeding my own lyrical standards.”
