Kepler Ten, who recently announced their signing to White Star Records, the new label formed by John Mitchell and Chris Hillman have confirmed details of their first release on the label. The track entitled, Time and Tide, was released as a single on November 18th and is a taster of their forthcoming album, Delta V, which is planned for release in early 2017.
Time and Tide is a powerful melodic slice of prog rock that was produced by James Durand from the band in their own Echo Base Studio in Hampshire and then mixed by renowned producer John Mitchell in his Outhouse Recording Studio.
Steve Hales from the band, who wrote the lyrics says about the track - ‘No matter how in control of our lives we feel when it comes to the passing of time we are merely passengers. Our journey is flagged along the way by important personal moments such as falling in love but metaphorically the same powerful tide that brings two people together can in the blink of an eye tear them apart (in the song through illness). Whether you call it fate, probability or just dumb luck it's still outside of our control and there is no way that we can ever stop the clock or turn it back for a second chance. The song is sad but the message is not. Don't take anything for granted and make the absolute best of those good times. Fly their flags high!’
The track is available now from itunes, amazon & other download stores and is also available from streaming sites. Click here to watch a video of the track.
Kepler Ten performed their first ever live performance on October 28th at Southampton’s Talking Heads venue to great acclaim.
About Kepler Ten :-
Kepler Ten are a new powerful melodic prog rock band featuring three excellent musicians - James Durand (Vocals, Bass, Keyboards), Steve Hales (Drums, Piano) and Richie Cahill (Guitars). Steve has previously been in bands including Stranglehold, Steve Grimmett’s Seven Deadly Sins & Lionsheart whilst James & Richie performed together in Arrival.
Kepler Ten were formed in 2014 when, having already worked together on various projects, Steve, James and Richie teamed up as a three piece to play some Rush tribute shows. The project under the name R2 – A Tribute To Rush, which still continues, was so well received and so enjoyable that they quickly made the decision to begin writing original music.
With Steve and James coming from a progressive rock background and Richie providing a harder, heavier rock guitar the band influences are diverse. Muse, Rush, Yes, Dream Theater, Queensryche, Van Halen and even some Queen.
