TEN – NEW Album “Illuminati” ….OUT NOW….

unnamed (22)

Hot on the heels of last year’s “Gothica”, UK hard rock stalwarts TEN/Gary Hughes are returning with a new album, “Illuminati”! The album promises to be one of the hallmarks of their 22+ years career, where fans will easily spot all the trademark textures and flavours they have come to expect from TEN, with a consistent and solid spark of creativity throughout. “Illuminati” continues to build upon the rich legacy that the great British rockers have established in their 20+ year career.

“Illuminati” is said to be an elite, secret organization of world leaders, business authorities, innovators, artists, and other influential members of the global society. A coalition that unites influencers of all political, religious, and geographical backgrounds to further the prosperity of the human species as a whole. The album “Illuminati” brings the band’s atmospheres and sounds and weaves them into a reel of mysteries, esoteric tales, and elaborate spells, evoking embers that spark the imagination courtesy of the classic songwriting of vocalist Gary Hughes.

Following the success of the recent string of albums, from “Albion” to “Gothica”, Hughes is joined once again by guitarists Dann Rosingana, Steve Grocott and John Halliwell along with bass player Steve McKenna, keyboard maestro Darrel Treece-Birch, and drummer Max Yates. On their fourth outing as a collective unit, the musicians in TEN have raised the bar even higher than they had previously. The album is full of stunning guitar work over a rich keyboard, bass, and drum tapestry with Hughes’ rich vocals once again bringing the nuances of the intricate lyrics to life.

“Illuminatii” was produced by Gary Hughes and mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward. TEN’s longstanding professional association with Dennis has been ongoing since he mixed their 2011 album, “Stormwarning” and has always guaranteed albums with stunning sound and production.

BIOGRAPHY:
Dale is a dreamy small city boy, born in Italy, class of 1981. His deep love affair with rock
music started when he was only 9. Spending his teens as an avid rock albums eater, at 17
he decided it was about time to have an actual role in the music scene so he picked up his first guitar and learned how to rock it playing along to his favorite records. The first bands then arrived bringing the chance to start writing original songs, developing his songwriter skills, love for deep lyrical content and building a huge live stage attitude. 18 years have then passed by playing in several bands, writing countless songs, gigging around Europe and growing either as a guitar player, a singer and songwriter. Now in 2018, with the precious help of producer extraordinaire Mario Percudani, he has the chance to fulfill his longtime dream and finally become a solo artist, presenting to the world his debut album “Handle With Care”, a romantic and sincere rock retrospective over what happened in his not-so-quite life  during the last years plus his shared vision on today’s world. The first step of many to come!
