Power Quest led by founder and keyboardist Steve Williams, return with their 6th album, the first since 2011. “Sixth Dimension” is prime time PQ. Melodic, catchy and uplifting which are the trademarks of the PQ sound.
“Sixth Dimension” contains 9 tracks and the main lyrical theme running through the album is that no matter how bad things seem today, tomorrow is a new day and an opportunity for us all to step out of the shadows and be who we want to be.
The title track, co-written by Steve Williams and Richard West [Threshold] is a real tour de force bringing to mind bands like Marillion and Symphony X, whilst not losing the quintessential Power Quest identity.
“Kings and Glory”, the first single from the album is a traditional speedy power metal romp with a typically glorious vibe in the vein of Sacred Land, Glory Tonight and Survive. Songs like “Pray for the Day” and “No More Heroes” maintain the hard rock edge that the band have become known for over the years, whilst “Revolution Fighters” is one of the heaviest songs the band have written without losing the melodic edge that defines the PQ sound.
Ahead of the album release, the band are touring heavily including appearances at Sabaton Open Air in Sweden and ProgPower USA in Atlanta. In between these festivals Power Quest will be playing 3 shows in Japan with Freedom Call and Twilight Force before returning to the stage in the UK on October as special guests of DragonForce on an 11 show run. After that the band play 4 UK headline shows in late October. For all the latest tour dates check out www.power-quest.co.uk
Steve Williams, keyboardist and band leader, commented
“It’s such an exciting time for the band right now. So many awesome shows to look forward and we really can’t wait to unleash the new album and see what everyone thinks. I’m extremely proud of the collection of songs we’ve got on this record and it’s been an amazing process from the first writing period through to the finished product. I’m also thrilled to have 3 songs on this album that I wrote on guitar. Another first for PQ.
I’m also extremely proud of Ash, Rich, Paul, Glyn and Andy who have all worked like demons to make this a reality and bring the vision to life. See you all on the road!”
“Break the night and crack the sky, take me on to another time, show me how to fly to the Sixth Dimension”.
