JOURNEY Announces New Album “Eclipse” (Video)
Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of JOURNEY’s forthcoming studio album « Eclipse » in Europe on May 27th 2011.
Following the release of « Eclipse », Journey will launch the “Eclipse Tour” which will kick off with a 7 dates arena tour in the UK/Eire, together with Styx and Foreigner and will then hit Germany, Switzerland, Benelux, Scandinavia, France and – for the first time ever – Italy.
“I’m in love with this record, which I haven’t said about one of our albums for a long time,” says founding member and lead guitarist, Neal Schon. “It’s a rock record and it sounds amazing.” Commenting on the upcoming tour, Schon continued, “We’ve got a lot of hits to play and there’s plenty of time to do some new stuff too, so we’re gonna mix it up. We haven’t toured with Foreigner for over 10 years, so we’re really looking forward to this run.”
Keyboardist Jonathan Cain recently described “Eclipse” as “a concept record with some spiritual themes to it…pretty tough, hard-hitting stuff.” Jonathan continued, “We just felt like it was time to send a message to the world about how we feel about life in general.”
The new album release will be preceded by the digital release of the single “City of Hope” on April 4th.
