We had such a blast talking with Frank Long yesterday, covering many different music-related topics including backgrounds, connections, and even spontaneously tackling the infamous “What is prog?” question. All five of us learned more about each other as well (something that doesn’t happen too often). A huge thank-you to Frank for a most engaging discussion that we hope you’ll enjoy as well!
Alan’s guest appearance on Mats Öberg’s new album
Advent guitarist Alan Benjamin was honored to contribute sitar guitar tracks to “När solen går upp,” the final cut of Mats Öberg’s beautiful new album, Visa från Inneröra. The album can be heard (and purchased) on Bandcamp here.
Great new fan videos of our Gentle Giant tribute tracks
We want to extend a most sincere and heartfelt thank-you to Frank Long for putting together two fantastic videos for both of Advent’s Gentle Giant tribute recordings from the mid-1990s. Frank’s latest offering (above) features the final mix of our “Experience/For Nobody” medley that had never been released until Alan remastered the track just a couple of years ago. Several months earlier, Frank also published the following video for our “BITB” tribute offering as well.
We sincerely hope you enjoy these blasts from the past, accompanied with the wonderful new visual accompaniment courtesy of Frank.
New Advent single: “Pas de Quatre”
It’s a great pleasure to announce the release of the new Advent single, “Pas de Quatre”—available now on Bandcamp. We very much hope you’ll enjoy this instrumental offering (and the accompanying video as well). Thanks very much for listening and best wishes to all our our fans, friends, and families!
