On this tour, Instrumental Prog-Rockers Consider the Source will highlight songs from the band’s 2009 release “Are You Watching Closely” which is being released in record format for the first time.
The band noted, “The original version took up about a side and a half on vinyl so we decided to do something special for this one. We added 2 bonus songs, Kashyyyk and Put Your Face Away, which we recorded remotely in each of our home studios and are calling “2023 BONUS DEMOS”. (Both songs had been performed live in the early days of the band but never recorded until now)”
Pre-orders have started already and will begin shipping around the time of the Tour. Guarantee your copy (HERE) or better yet grab one at a show!
More on CTS…
Sci-fi fusion trio Consider the Source defy easy categorization. If intergalactic energy beings, upon their initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built a pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine powered by psychedelic math…it would sound like a cut-rate CTS cover band. With their blend of progressive rock and improvisatory jazz, soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate elements into an utterly original whole. A relentless touring schedule has earned them a fervent following around the world, with fans ranging from tie dye covered hippies to metalheads decked out in black.
Fresh off the heels of a tour of seated performances which highlighted their acoustic instruments and first ever “hybrid” album, the band is ready to get back to the face-melting electric shows they have become known for. Their most recent Maxx Power Tour featured material from throughout the band’s history, bringing back songs from the very beginning, each album, and a couple of the electric tracks from their latest effort “Hybrid Vol.1: Such As A Mule”. Additionally, the band is preparing for the release of their next album in 2024 which they have shared will include “some of the heaviest music we have written yet” and plan to begin weaving into their live shows on this tour.
CTS have performed in a half-dozen countries across three continents. They have shared the stage with a wide variety of artists, including: Victor Wooten, King Crimson Projekt, Wyclef Jean, Ozric Tentacles, Soulive, The Disco Biscuits, Papadosio, Turkuaz, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Wayne Krantz, TAUK, Spafford and many others. They have performed at festivals and events including: Electric Forest, Peach Fest, Northlands, Gathering of the Vibes, Resonance, Summercamp, Shakori Hills, ProgDay, and Progtober.
