Keeping the prog flowing through the generations, Next To None, who count Max Portnoy (son of legendary drummer Mike Portnoy) amongst their members, have just announced the details of their second album.
Titled Phases, the album is going to be released on the 7th of July through InsideOut, and follows on from the band’s recent European tour with Haken. Here’s what Next To None have had to say about their upcoming release:
“We’re so excited to finally be releasing our new album. We feel it’s a huge step forward for the band and shows a much heavier and much more technical side.
This album is very special to us because it’s the first time we recorded and self-produced our entire album. We were able to create music that it completely our own. Every note, every sound, every word, came from us and we can’t wait for you all to hear it.
Working with Adam Nolly Getgood on the mix has been one of the highlights of this recording for us. He captured the exact sound we wanted right from the start.
Doing this upcoming tour with The Shattered Fortress will be a great opportunity to premiere this new material to an audience that will surely get where we’re coming from”
The Pennsylvanian natives will also be supporting Max’s dad on his very special set of shows across the Summer as Mike Portnoy brings Dream Theater’s Twelve Step Suite to live shows for the very first time with Mike Portnoy’s Shattered Fortress project. The details of that tour can be found below:
