TEN YEARS AFTER Naturally Live
Rock. Pop. Blues.
Fifty years after the release of their eponymous debut album in 1967, Ten Years After are back with a brand new studio album containing twelve newly written tracks. As well as original members Ric Lee (Drums) and Chick Churchill (Keys), the band now features Bass Icon Colin Hodgkinson (Peter Green, Spencer Davis, Chris Rea) and multi-award winning Guitarist/Vocalist Marcus Bonfanti ((Van Morrison, Ginger Baker, Ronnie Wood). The subject material on the album ranges from childhood memories of growing up in post war Britain, songs of love lost to the rock n roll lifestyle as well as sincere odes to a life well lived. They pay homage to the steam train drivers of the past and guitar heroes of the future as well as other interesting characters the band have encountered since they embarked on this journey over fifty years ago. The title "A Sting In The Tale" reflects the same sentiment Ric & Chick wished to convey in the 2015 live album "The Name Remains The Same". Although the band lineup has changed and the music continues to evolve and grow fifty years on, the sound of the band will always be heavily rooted in the way they paved the way during the late sixties and early seventies and will never forget it's incredible heritage. This new record is the 'Sting' in the continuing Tale of Ten Years After.
