Read an interesting post on Nad Sylvan's (Agents of Mercy, Unifaun) Facebook page that sounded exciting to me, wanted to share:

BREAKING NEWS!!

Ok, you might as well hear it from me first. 
So the Unifaun album, that caught the attention of mr Stolt
some 3½ years ago, lead up to the Agents of Mercy´s birth.
As they say, "one thing leads to another" - very true!
After three albums (plus a live album) with AOM this happens;
About a month ago, I got a call from Steve Hackett (Genesis).
He said he is in the process of making a sequal to his Genesis revisited album 
"Watcher of the Skies" (1996). He wondered if I would be interested in recording
three songs for Genesis revisited II, namely - "Eleventh Earl of Mar", "The Musical Box"
and "The Chamber of 32 Doors". (It will be a double album, and apart from myself on vocals
there will be people like Steven Wilson, Nik Kershaw and John Wetton among others.)
I would be a fool to say no, right? So off I went to London two days ago. 
Spent almost the whole of wednesday in the studio with Steve, his lovely wife Jo and his right hand ROger King -
just trying out things and also getting to know each other a bit. The chemestry was there from the word go!

Thing is - this will go on the road in 2013, and Steve wants me to perform the whole show
as his singer and frontman, singing old Genesis classics. Did I die and go to heaven? Almost think so!
Tour dates in Great Britain and Europe is yet to be confirmed. 
A little teaser is, that I will join Steve and his band on stage June the 24 (this year) on the Isle of Wight 
festival to sing "Watcher of the Skies". No batwings and cape, but I will make do with what I have, my voice.

The album is exciting. Steve Hacette touring the album, and so, old Genesis tunes, is even more exciting. Hope he finds his way around here... more interesting than going to a Genesis or Peter Gabriel concert nowdays (at leas for me, who wasn't around when those songs were toured in their own day).

If one thing's for sure, it's that Steve Hackett is and has always been an extremely dedicated musician. He just keeps on going, and I can't say I mind.

I loved the first Genesis Revisited. It refired my interest in Steve Hackett. I also think it sparked Steve off and rekindled his career. Looking forward to this.

This doesn't surprise me at all.  Even back in the 80s Nik Kershaw's albums were clearly very prog-influenced.  Just have a listen.  I know for certain that Steven Wilson was a fan too.

Hello everybody!

Indeed this is an intriguing story and I am utterly excited about it.
But I must stress that no tour has been set and is only on a discussion level.
Indeed I was a bit hasty. My misstake! 
I have merely been asked if I would be interested to join,  if a tour is to follow
the record release. And, of course I have said yes.
Still, the Isle of Wight thing is definitely on.
Please forgive me if I gave you too much to hope for so early on. 

Best regards,
Nad

Very exciting news, Nad! I love your work with Unifaun and Agents of Mercy, and those songs you mentioned are three of my favorite Genesis tunes.

Thanks for the heads-up. :)

Seconding Snow Dog here, thanks for clearing that up for us.  We're honored that you've posted to our little corner of the universe.  I know I'd love to see a tour, though will enjoy the album even without the subsequent live show.

With the voice he has, he could do a great job on Star of the Sirius too I think. But this guy ain't Peter Gabriel and it's certain it will be deceiving if we compare the songs to the originals. Wouldn't it be interesting if Steve Hackett hired Cyrus to sing some old Genesis though.

I wish Steve would handle all the vocals himself now and make the songs fit around them. I think he sounded great on TFOS when he wasn't using the voice changer.

I agree, specially after listening SQUACKETT and what a great work Steve did.

The merit of Genesis Revisited is that nobody tries to sound like Peter Gabriel or Tony Banks, Steve created a new and fresh sound that would never be compared with the original versions, if he adds a singer that tries to sound like Gabriel, would loose the special and unique Hackett sound.

So if Steve or any other good singer can imprint a new personality to the old masterpieces, i would be more pleased.

STEVE HACKETT : GENESIS REVISITED II UPDATE

The limited blue vinyl 4LP + 2CD edition of Genesis Revisited II has now totally sold out. However, the black vinyl version of the 4LP + 2CD set is now available to pre-order, as is the 2CD mediabook edition.

... and remember all orders for Genesis Revisited II on LP or CD placed via HackettSongs on or before 23rd October will be autographed by Steve and qualify for a £5 discount on the new GRII design t-shirt.
 
 
LIMITED EDITION GENESIS VINYL RELEASES

November 5th will see the release of two very special limited edition Genesis vinyl sets ...

GENESIS : SECONDS OUT 35TH ANNIVERSARY HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL LIMITED EDITION

35 years after it was originally released one of the greatest live albums of all time gets a very limited re-issue on heavyweight double vinyl. Recorded in Paris in 1976 (on the A Trick Of The Tail Tour) and 1977 (on the Wind And Wuthering tour) it features the band at what many fans believe was their absolute peak. Remixed & remastered by Nick Davis in 2009 with input from the band the 35th Anniversary Vinyl Edition sounds better than ever.

The initial allocation of this release sold out in just a few days but Hackettsongs are pleased to announce that they have managed to secure some extra copies. These are also likely to sell very quickly, so please pre-order ASAP to avoid disappointment. Steve will autograph all copies pre-ordered via HackettSongs.



GENESIS : 1976-1982 LIMITED EDITION VINYL BOX SET

The Hackettsongs team have also managed to secure some copies of the limited edition Genesis 1976-1982 5 album vinyl box set. This beautiful set features the albums A Trick Of The Tail, Wind & Wuthering, ... And Then There Were Three, Duke and Abacab all remixed & remastered by Nick Davies with input from the band and pressed on heavyweight audiophile vinyl. Anyone fortunate enough to have a copy of the previous 1970-1975 vinyl set will know how good these pressings sound.

This release will be in very limited supply, so pre-ordering is essential.



GENESIS REVISITED TOUR 2013

The first shows have been announced for Steve's Genesis Revisited Tour 2013.

10th May 2013 - London, UK - Hammersmith Apollo
11th May 2013 - Cardiff, UK - St. David's Hall
12th May 2013 - Liverpool, UK - Philharmonic
14th May 2013 - Glasgow, UK - Royal Concert Hall
15th May 2013 - Gateshead, UK - The Sage
16th May 2013 - Birmingham, UK - Symphony Hall

This will mark the first time that any former member of Genesis has toured the band's repertoire solely from the 1971-1977 period and will comprise of songs co-written by Steve from that era including such classics as Supper's Ready, Dancing With The Moonlit Knight and The Musical Box.

Visit www.hackettsongs.com for details of how to book tickets and check back regularly as lots more Genesis Revisited shows will be announced soon and follow Steve on Facebook and Twitter.

Agreed - I saw him over summer and he played three Genesis song, the rest of the set was his own material. Last year he released the stonkingly good Beyond The Shrouded Horizon and this year the Squackett album with Chris Squire. What more does he have to do? Confused

It is so infuriating, and unnecessary in this day and age when content gets restricted in certain countries like this. A fair few YouTube vids wont play in the UK because of licensing issues, and streaming content from several US and European music sites isn't playable either. Even Spotify doesn't work everywhere in the World yet, which is a nuisance for some folks who regularly use progarchives. Disapprove

Infuriating. I couldn't listen to Scott's new band suggestion earlier on My Space, as my new I-pad doesn't support the flash player, apparently.

Some time ago my friend HT (Bhkkhiu) gave me a 5'0 bucks certificate present for ITUNES 

They answered me that nobody in Peru could redeme this certificates.

I asked to pay him back, they said this was impossible, so I lost it

This is robbery IMO

With Archive's 'you make me feel' appearing on a Garnier Olia advert and selling like crazy on the MP3 download it's good times for prog. 

Time for a 4th Dave Gilmour album?

New box set has been released. Very expensive, but, apparently, very good with the live stuff.

4CD + 2DVD + 2LP box set all yours for a squid short of a ton.
 
Or the 3-CD box set is only 14 squids

and there it is from Steve himself about each track .
Wonderful how an artist of this magnitude freely talks about his work.

Genesis Revisited I was a mind blower, quite stellar.
I do love GR 2 My only criticism is the vocals of Gary O'Toole on Blood...He just sounds too fluffy.

He is playing in Cardiff next May. I will book tickets for the three of us tomorrow anyway, but does anyone know whether there will be some orchestra in addition to the band?

The tour will be a special production and something of a departure from his recent live shows.

"This will mark the first time any original former member of Genesis has toured the band's repertoire solely from the 1971 - 1977 period and will comprise songs co-written by Steve from that period, including such classics as Supper's Ready, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and The Musical Box. The line-up will feature the addition of Nad Sylvan as principal vocalist on several songs. The tour will commence in the US in early March and reach the UK in May 2013. For anyone who was a fan of Genesis, this will be a 'must see' event."

Steve Hackett - guitar and vocals
Roger King - keyboards
Gary O'Toole - drums and vocals
Lee Pomeroy - bass guitar and vocals
Rob Townsend - brass and woodwind

With Nad Sylvan as principal vocalist on several songs.

Message from Amanda Lehmann... "Regrettably I have decided not to join Steve Hackett and the band for the Genesis Revisited World tour... due to both illness in the family and the fact that I don't feel right about being away from my son for extended periods of time (and this tour is going to be a looooong one!!). I will be making appearances at some of the shows... watch this space! All being well, I'll be returning to the band in 2014."

No mention on Steve's website about any added orchestra, but I'll try to find out more...

Yes indeed - a follow up to 'Checking Out Of London Town' by Steve's brother John is now underway, which Nick is currently working with him on.

This instrumental project was born of our friendship and the same incurable and inextinguishable love of classical and progressive rock music. Between the two genres there exists a continuum of sound – who can say where one ends and the other begins?

With this intention we have chosen some of the masterpieces of progressive rock music. Friends and family, Steve Hackett, Dave Jackson and Giorgio Gabriel, did us the honour of accepting our proposal to perform all the pieces in new, interesting ways. These are fresh interpretations, in a way close to the performance of classical music without drums and vocals.

The core of our idea is to give a place of honour to progressive rock music on the same level as the works of the great classical composers. Progressive rock lyrics have often drawn on elements of myth and fantasy, so we have also included some new pieces inspired by the literature of JRR Tolkien.
What more can we say? Listen and enjoy!
(Marco Lo Muscio, John Hackett and Carlo Matteucci)
