New music from a new band in the United States is the latest addition to the line-up of new material on a new album from the New York-based New York City rock opera outfit Aquarius.
Aquarius are releasing their self-titled album in September, following up 2013’s The New York Times/Variety/NPR Music/AQS-The New York Story, which they co-produced with their longtime producer, composer and lyricist Matt Sernett.
“I’ve been waiting to see the new material since I heard it through the news,” said Sernetts, who has also collaborated with the band in other projects including a live album and a film, The Last Time.
“There’s some of my favorite material from the album.
I’ve been looking forward to hearing more.”
Aquarius will tour the U.S. and Canada in 2018 and 2019.
The band also recently released a documentary, the band’s first in over a decade, which follows the band on their world tour.
In a statement, Sernitts said that Aquarius’ new material has a “greatly distinct character and sense of place.”
“The material I’ve heard is just a little bit different, but we’re confident that it’s going to capture the essence of Aquarius,” he said.
The album, released on Sept. 30, marks the band at the beginning of their 20th year of recording, following a two-year hiatus from the studio following a 2010 breakup.
The release coincides with the release of Aquarians new studio album, The New Manhattan, which is scheduled for release on Oct. 6.
The new album will be available on iTunes, Spotify and other streaming services in late 2018.
