Winger Release Video For Their New Prog Anthem 'Tin Soldier'
For the new video, Kip Winger and the band recruited Jason Green and Dan Hubp to the direct the clip. Their history with the band goes way back as they designed the first Winger album cover and logo.
"Tin Soldier" showcases Winger's progressive rock side with three different time signatures and Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess had this to say about frontman the band's prog credentials, "I remember when I saw the first Winger video many years ago. I was struck by the high level of musicality within the whole band and total charisma of Kip Winger.
"Years later now moving to the present, I can still feel the magic and the power of this group. I've had the amazing fortune to work with Rod Morgenstein, who is one of the greatest drummers on the planet. He can play anything from solid rock to the craziest prog I can think of.
"I've also worked with Kip. His amazing voice and musicianship shine through anything he touches, whether it's singing Rudess, Gentle Giant or ELP songs on my albums, creating rich original orchestral music in his own compositions or leading his band Winger, to this day in driving, sonically satisfying rock gems. These guys are not only my friends and cohorts but also my musical heroes. Rock on Winger. Check out the album!"
The "Tin Soldier" video follows the release of videos for "Rat Race" and "Midnight Driver of a Love Machine" from the new album, which is set to be released on April 22nd in North America.
