Ray Alder said the following about the new record:
“The styles of music we’ve written distinguish this record from the rest of our catalogue. There are some songs with electronics and some with a nice ethereal feel, as well as some pretty straightforward grooves, at least for us. And there are also some pretty heavy songs. We tried to give the listener a host of different things to listen to, as opposed to an album where every song sounds the same.”
“Like all albums, nothing comes easy. It’s quite a process to go from the idea to the actual finished song. Sometimes you think you’re done with it, then you hear something else and you have to try that. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but you at least have to try it just so you know that in the end you’ve done everything possible to make it as good as it can be. Jim [Matheos] and I spent practically every day for the last year writing this album. I am very happy with the outcome, and with the blend of styles. I guess I could say that this album represents all of the years that we have been together.”
Ray Alder has confirmed that he has finished tracking vocals for the new Fates Warning album. He said the following:
“It’s official, the vocals for Fates Warning’s 13th album are done. 13 songs in 12 days. It was quite the adventure. I’ll tell you about it sometime…”
Fates Warning bassist Joey Vera will be missing three shows due to his commitments to Armored Saint. During his absence, original Fates Warning bassist Joe DiBiase will be filling in. Here’s the dates DiBiase will perform at:
03/13 Detroit, MI – Diesel
03/14 Chicago, IL – Concord
03/15 Milwaukee, WI – The Rave
“Dear friends, Just a quick heads up with something regarding the upcoming Fates Warning tour. Over a year ago I had committed to playing a gig with Armored Saint in Athens, Greece this March 15. I wish to honor that commitment but that means that I’ll sadly have to miss a couple of gigs with Fates in order to do it. So i will be not playing on the Detroit, Chicago and Milwaukee shows. (Some of my favorite cities by the way!).
Luckily for us, and YOU, my brother and OG Fates Warning bassist Joe DiBiase will be stepping up once again for these three gigs. So this will be amazing!
I will resume in Minneapolis with Fates.
I am currently practicing over 37 songs for the upcoming gigs with Motor Sister, Armored Saint and Fates Warning. My head is spinning out. But, not to pity me. This is the bed I’ve made for myself this time.
I’m very sorry I’ll be missing these three gigs but I know you’ll be in good hands. i look forward to seeing all of you out there very soon!”
Fates Warning have announced their return to Metal Blade Records. The group are planning to release a new album through the label in 2020. Vocalist Ray Alder commented:
“All of us in Fates Warning are happy to announce that we are back with Metal Blade Records. Metal Blade has been there for us since the very beginning and we are proud to call them part of our family. The journey begins again and we cannot begin to say how excited we are to work together once more. A big thank you to our fans for sticking with us through all these years. We could not be here today without all of you. That is a fact. Thank you everyone. Here’s to making some new memories!”
