Welcome to 'The New Normal'. Following their debut release 2021's 'Fragments', the trio of bassist extraordinaire Nick Beggs (Kajagoogoo / Steven Wilson), gifted jazz keyboardist Adam Holzman (Grover Washington / Steven Wilson) & rhythmic powerhouse Craig Blundell, return to deliver their signature brand of instrumental Prog come Funk or Prunk / Frog if you were to be so bold. Aside from being immensely talented performers, the three have all at one point performed together as part of Steven Wilson's band & all three appear on Wilson's new album 'The Harmony Codex'. Combining elements of Progressive Rock, Jazz Fusion all with a dash of typical English with the band bring the listener into a world where sound is malleable, time is a mere concept & vegetables have otherworldly properties like the 'Stroboscopic Fennel'. Joining the trio of masterful musos is Alex Lifeson (Envy Of None / Rush) for additional guitar on 'Once Around The Sun With You' & Theo Travis (Steven Wilson) on saxophone for insectoid grooves of 'Daddy Long Legs'. Alongside John Paul Jones' very chapman stick from 1979 that was sent to Nick & used to record 'The New Normal'. 'The New Normal' was engineered by the band & mastered by Andy VanDette (Beastie Boys / Rush / Whitney Houston), adorned with artwork that was inspired by an original idea from Hajo Muller.
