    Thank you!

    We're releasing this song today for Deluxe Edition pre-orders. It's called "Catrina."

    I'm excited about this release. Such a cool duo! Serious musicianship and creativity going on here. Cool to hear what you guys have come up with working together compared to what we've done with IC.

    Just a little bump for this one, as it comes out on Friday.

    Here's a lighter song from the record:

    Here's an interview with Marco and Randy all about the new album, including covering many of their older projects like Steven Wilson, The Fringe, etc...
    Interview is transcribed, or you can listen to the audio:

    Contender for my yearly Top 10. Don't snooze on this one.

    I listened this this quite a lot while working on projects in the garage this weekend. It's always great when your sander has a speed control so you can tune it to the key of the song you're listening to.

    Very solid album. The music is catchy and has a lot of depth and detail to be revealed over time (when not running power tools).

    Probably in the top 3 of my favorite things Marco has been involved with.

    Going to have to check out The Fringe now (not sure why I let that one slip past).

    Marco has been doing so many projects during the past decade or so, although none have established him as a major prog artist. He tried for the Dream Theater drummer vacancy but that did not work out and have done stints with both Steven Wilson and Steve Morse, Eddie Jobson UK and as his obscure debut with supergroup Seas Within that needs no introduction. And his Continuum band but where does he stand? I wonder if this McStine project will finally break him as he deserves.

    No doubt Marco is an extreme talent but don't sleep on this guy Randy McStine. I did and I'm now trying to make up for it. I was aware of his work in the Fringe and as a side guy on a number of other projects but when I saw his performance of "Here Comes the Flood" with Adam Holzman on "Prog From Home" a month or so ago he knocked my d**k in the dirt. Holy mother of G-d. Who knew he could sing like that? And his guitar solo was other-worldly. Guthrie Govan watch out. There's a new sherrif in town. Meantime loving this new album. Don't miss out

    There's a bit of Randy's playing near the end of this, not to mention some other amazing players:

    Thanks for all of the positive feedback here so far!

    The record is starting to reach some people now (it's been out for less than a week), and there is a lot of detail for repeated listens.

    In the words of the mighty King's X, "if you like what you hear, go tell somebody!"

    hoping you play some of it when you open for brand x in september in albany (assuming the show actually happens...fingers crossed). and that you have copies for sale

    The album is really good. Kind of a surprise for me, since I am not favorably inclined for this kind of "mainstream" prog (I don't know how else to put it). Good songs, lots of interesting ideas, excellently performed. And a fun, positive energy permeating the whole thing. Congratulations!
