Hear Kansas new song “Throwing Mountains”:
The band’s guitarist Zak Rizvi talked about the song:
“Throwing Mountains ’may be one of the heaviest songs Kansas has ever recorded. More than six minutes long, I like to consider it a mini-epic from Kansas” The Absence Of Presence will be released on CD, 2 LPs, limited edition on luxury CD / Blu-ray and on digital and streaming platforms.
Last March, Kansas announced a series of concerts in Europe in celebration of the album “Point Of Know Return”, starting at the London Palladium on October 18th and ending at the Holland Carre Theater in Amsterdam on November 10th .
Drummer Phil Ehart complained in an interview that people are currently physically present. But at the same time absent because they spend their time focused on their cell phones and other electronics. It is as if there is an absence of presence.
It is from this idea that comes the name of the seventeenth Kansas album. Which will be released on April 16th. Also, apparently, the keyboards will have prominence, as in the initial phase of the group. The first single will be released in April, as will the tracklist.
