Mike + The Mechanics' New Album Enters Chart In Top 10

Mike The Mechanics

Mike + The Mechanics scored a No. 6 debut on the UK iTunes album chart upon the release of their brand new studio effort "Let Me Fly", which hit stores last Friday.

Stateside, the album entered the U.S. iTunes rock chart at No. 23. The record is the second release featuring the lineup of band leader Mike Rutherford and Luke Juby, Gary Wallis, Anthony Drennan, Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar.

The Genesis star reflected on the differences between their last album "The Road" and this new effort, "The Road didn't move anyone's world as we made it just after we'd met. We've learned to play together now.

"For me, it's about proving I can write a good song, but the older you get, the less you let yourself off with 'it's not bad', the less you pretend and the tougher you are on yourself.

"The hardest part of the whole process is staying relevant, but anyone who says success doesn't matter is a liar: what you really want is people to like it. Then you feel it's all been worth it. It's as simple as that. Oh and my wife loves it, more than she's loved an album of mine for a while! Trust me, that's a really good sign."

Mike + The Mechanics have announced dates in the U.S. and Europe to promote the new album. They will be kicking things off in Asbury Park on April 21st.
