News: Nektar's New Studio Album Time Machine

Nektar To Release Highly Anticipated New Studio Album 'Time Machine'.

Prog legends Nektar return with their 13th album Time Machine (2013). The album was released on June 18 on Purple Pyramid Records – the first album of new material in over 4 years – that band leader and founding member Roye Albrighton is calling “The best album Nektar has ever made!” 'Time Machine' showcases a new depth of songwriting, melodic complexity and musical exploration that hearkens back to early Nektar releases such as A Tab In The Ocean (1972) and Remember The Future (1973).

Watch the first single of the album below:

Nektar, featuring Albrighton, founding drummer Ron Howden, keyboardist Klaus Hentasch and bassist Lux Vibratus, is British, but was formed in Hamburg, Germany in 1970. Their early albums featured a heady, exhilarating mix of progressive, experimental rock sounds that soon caught on worldwide at the height of the international prog-rock boom. Touring the world behind numerous album releases throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s helped to cement the band’s reputation as an influential prog-rock legend. Having undergone a variety of personnel changes over the past decade or so, the band now boasts its strongest lineup in years and is ready to prove so yet again to its many fans throughout North America. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original release date of the band’s classic album, Remember The Future (1973),  Nektar is looking to perform in its entirety this most heralded release from its vast catalog, a rarity in that the band has not performed the entire album live in years.
