New line-up and album confirmed for 2013.
It certainly looks like 2013 will be an exciting year for ASIA, with new album 'Valkyrie' to be recorded, more live appearances, and the signing of guitarist Sam Coulson to the group.
Coulson, a world-renowned name among guitar virtuosos, will be making a high-profile appearance at Sweden Rock in 2013. John Wetton, Geoff Downes and Carl Palmer are said to be "delighted" at Steve Howe's replacement, describing Coulson as an "incredible talent".
John Wetton stated that ASIA is "ready to take its next steps along this remarkable road. We cannot wait to perform again for the fans and also to unveil some of the new material, of which we are very proud." Geoff Downes added that the group were looking forward to "writing another chapter in ASIA's history."
