U.S. progressive metal pioneers FATES WARNING will release their much-anticipated 12th studio album, “Theories Of Flight”, on July 1 via InsideOut Music. The cover artwork for the CD was created by Michigan artist Graceann Warn.
Performed by the FATES WARNING lineup that returned to form with 2013’s acclaimed “Darkness In A Different Light” release, “Theories Of Flight” was produced by guitarist Jim Matheos and mixed/mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (OPETH, SYMPHONY X). Guitarist Frank Aresti contributed a couple solos on the new record, but due to his current work commitments, he will not be able to tour with FATES WARNING for the foreseeable future. FATES WARNING guitarist and main composer Jim Matheos states; “[Frank] remains part of the extended FATES WARNING family and the door is always open for him to return anytime his schedule permits.”
Adds Frank: “I absolutely love ‘Theories Of Flight’, and I’m proud to be a part of it. I’ll continue to do as much as I can, as often as I can, with the band. Meantime, they’re in good hands with Mike Abdow, a great guitarist and a great guy. I wish them the best of luck, and look forward to sitting in on a song (or two).
