King Crimson Offshoot Stick Men Announce 'Prog Noir' Album

Stick Men

(Prog) Stick Men have announced they'll release their latest album titled Prog Noir later this year. The band, featuring King Crimson men Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto, along with Markus Reuter, will launch the follow-up to 2014's Power Play on October 21. And to mark the announcement, they've issued a lyric video for their track The Tempest.

Reuter says: "What's unusual about Prog Noir is that we spent years composing it. Usually we get the ideas and quickly turn them into an album or start playing them in on the road. The imperative of a band like ours, that's out on the road touring a lot of the time, is to have new material each year.

"But this time the idea was to really refine the material, reject all but the best - indeed, there are some very nice pieces that didn't make the cut - and create a really special album that might define our band in terms of where our journey has taken us."
