The Crimson ProjeKCt to release new album, announce world tourThe Crimson ProjeKCt – an offshoot of the legendary King Crimson – will release its Live in Tokyo album through InsideOutMusic on March 18. Utilizing a double trio configuration similar to the Thrak period in the ’90s, consisting of Adrian Belew, Tony Levin, and Pat Mastelotto, as well as Markus Reuter, Julie Slick, and Tobias Ralph, and focusing primarily on the repertoire from the early ’80s through to the mid-’90s, the 12 track album includes the classic King Crimson track “Red,” among others. “‘Red’ is one of the pre-80s instrumentals that has remained an integral part of King Crimson’s repertoire up until the early 2000s,” says the ProjeKCt. “Our interpretation of this classic piece is uniquely energetic and always ‘on-the-edge,’ especially the double drumming from Pat and Tobias. Markus is doubling the main guitar part in a baritone register, which adds a subtle new pushing element to the song. The roar going through the audience when we start playing this is one of the highlights of our shows for us.”
Additionally, the band will begin its world tour on March 5, beginning in Israel and ending in Australia at the beginning of July.
