Babb, Schendel, Shikoh and Davison return with PERILOUS, the highly anticipated follow-up to their critically acclaimed IF and Cor Cordium releases of 2010 and 2011.
“It has been a very big year for Glass Hammer,” says GH co-founder Steve Babb. “Jon Davison became the front-man for YES while retaining his role as lead singer for Glass Hammer. Suddenly, we were introduced to thousands of new listeners world-wide. The response has been overwhelming and we’re fully expecting PERILOUS to be a must-buy with our fans as well as this new audience.” “PERILOUS is a classic concept album created as one giant piece of music in thirteen parts,” he goes on to say. “Lyrically, as the cover-art suggests, the album takes the listener on a perilous journey through the gate and beyond. We set out to make something epic, and I think we have done just that.” Featuring audiophile mastering by Bob Katz of Digital Domain and a twelve-page full-color insert with artwork by R. T. Adolfo, PERILOUS hits the streets October 23, 2012.
