Boston Nearly Done With New Album
Band say that they have 85% of their latest record completeFollowing Michael Sweet's announcement last week that he wouldn't be working with the band any more, Boston have released a statement about his departure.
"We truly enjoyed having Michael Sweet sing and play guitar on stage for the 2008 Boston tour along with Tommy DeCarlo, who was the lead vocalist replacing Brad Delp. However, Michael has not been involved in the recording of Boston's next studio album, which is now 85% complete. We have always understood his obvious commitment to his band Stryper and wish him and his band the best of luck with their new endeavors.
"The lead vocals for Boston's soon-to-be-released studio album include Brad Delp's singing on many songs, along with several excellent performances by our other three lead vocalists. The album reflects an intentional effort by principal songwriter and producer Tom Scholz to capture the recognizable sound and energy of his original releases, combined with the musical sophistication expected from exceptional players and vocalists all performing within the traditional framework of the well-known Boston sound."
No word on a release date for the new album but we will keep you up to date.
