Eagle Rock Entertainment/earMusic (edel) are proud to announce the August 28th US release of 20/20, the 20th studio album from Canadian progressive rock band SAGA. Finally reunited again with their original singer Michael Sadler, 20/20is the ultimate AOR/progressive rock album. [MSRP $13.98 for CD, $9.99 Digital]
Since SAGA’s foundation in 1977, the band has toured the globe various times, won many awards and has sold over 8 million albums worldwide. Their musical style is defined by prominent guitar riffs, often in harmony with a synthesizer and complex keyboard arrangements.
The title 20/20 obviously refers to the album being the 20th of SAGA, but, in addition, it’s a good luck wish to keyboardist/vocalist Jim Gilmour, who had to undergo an eye operation during SAGA’s latest European tour…and now his eyesight is, indeed, 20/20.
The album features ten brand new songs, never missing the distinctive sound of SAGA’s legendary hits. With striking keyboard sounds and Michael Sadler’s stunning vocals, the album has all that it takes to become an instant fan favorite as well as a worldwide hit. The opener “Six Feet Under” features a dominant keyboard sound, roaring guitars and a chorus you can’t get out of your head. Followed by the catchy, high-energy “Anywhere You Wanna Go,” SAGA clarifies that their original trademark sound is still going strong. The emotional ballad “Lost For Words” once again demonstrates Sadler’s incredible vocal range.
“One thing that we agreed on was that, if and when I ever were to return, it would have to feel like it was exactly the right thing to do and exactly the right time to do it!” reflects Michael Sadler on his return to the band.
And clearly, there has never been a better time than now!
Summer and fall dates in USA, Canada, Europe and South America will follow.
