IO Earth have shared a video for the title track of their forthcoming new album New World.

The album is expected to be released in time for the band’s upcoming orchestral show at the Crescent Theatre in Birmingham on the 23rd of May.

IO Earth announce one-off orchestral show

UK prog-rockers IO Earth have announced a one-off orchestral show.

The band will add a string and brass section in to the mix for a live gig in their hometown of Birmingham in May.

IO Earth are currently hard at work on their third studio album, New World, and are set to perform material from the record at the city’s Crescent Theatre on the 23rd of May.

Says Dave Cureton of the group’s collaboration with Orchestra Of Sound & Emotion: “We decided to put on a show which is truly that – a show. We feel that people expect value for money and that’s what we are trying to create. We want to make something really special.

“Every genre we cover and every song in the catalogue can benefit from being tweaked for this 14-piece band – and some may be tweaked a little more than others.”

Adds keyboard player and guitarist Adam Gough: “The addition of more live strings and brass will augment the live sound in a way we never thought we would have a chance to hear. We can’t wait to hear the results for ourselves, and sharing with you, our IO Earth Family will be a real honour.

“Whether your favourites are the soft, airy songs like Smokey Wood and Drifting, the guitar-led melodies of The Creation and Moments, or the full-on stonkers like Light & Shade, you will not go away unsatisfied.”

Tickets for the show are £21 and are available directly from the Crescent Theatre.
