Debuut nieuwe band Alex Lifeson komt eraan

De voormalige Rush-gitarist ging in zee met Andy Curran (Coney Hatch), Alfio Annibalini and Maiah Wynne.

Het debuut van Envy Of None, zoals de band gedoopt wordt, bevat elf tracks en verschijnt op 8 april via Kscope. Liar krijg je alvast als opwarmer. Zangeres Wynne wordt door de band zelf omschreven als "[hearing] Shirley Manson of Garbage or Amy Lee of Evanescence for the first time."

Curran zegt dat het materiaal klinkt "like, if you can picture maybe Massive Attack with a little bit of some electronic stuff with Nine Inch Nails influences, with this beautiful, fragile, sweet voice and some very, very dark heavy sounds."

De vergelijking met Rush gaat dus niet verder dan het artwork, waarover wordt gezegd: "[The] [Hipgnosis] style artwork of albums like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin and others were so eye catching, surreal and attention grabbing and we wanted to scratch that itch. We were instantly drawn to Lebanese photographer Eli Rezkallah at Plastik's photography and design work. We fell in love with a bunch of his work - we had a hard time choosing something because he had so many great images."
