Legendary American progressive rock band Kansas has released a new song ‘Memories Down The Line’ taken from the band’s new studio album The Absence of Presence due out 26th June, through Inside Out Music.
“‘Memories Down the Line’ starts out as a piano-based rock ballad; It builds dynamically to a more powerful sound that still has a sense of longing to it,” remarked keyboard player Tom Brislin.
“Lyrically, I was intrigued by the concept of not only passing down one’s physical traits from generation to generation, but also the experiences that shape us. As with a number of coincidences occurring with this album, I had no idea we would be living through unforgettable times, when the song would be released.”
“We are living during a time when people are doing a lot of reflecting – Reflecting on past memories, or the memories they are making right now,” added lead vocalist Ronnie Platt. “‘Memories Down The Line’ really makes one consider the importance of sharing our experiences with those who come after us. I love the sincerity of the song.
“We are really excited for our fans to be able to get a taste of what is to come from The Absence of Presence,” he continued. “I think people will really be surprised by the album. The Absence of Presence shows the band firing on all cylinders.”
