Former GENESIS Guitarist STEVE HACKETT To Support New Album With Upcoming Tour

World-renowned guitarist/composer STEVE HACKETT and his electric band will soon take to the road in North America to play select cities. Hackett and company will tour in support of Steve Hackett's new album Out Of The Tunnel’s Mouth, which hits streets in North America on June 8th via InsideOut Music. The release includes a special live bonus disc featuring solo and GENESIS classics including ‘Firth Of Fifth’, ‘Fly On A Windshield’, and more.

According to a press release: “Out Of The Tunnel’s Mouth is a rock album which features beautifully-sweeping symphonic sounds highlighted by Hackett's signature soaring guitar and unsullied vocals. The tracks contain a mélange of influences from classical to Middle Eastern and showcase Hackett's prowess as a composer with the ability to meld seemingly disparate styles. Although majestic in sound and scope, Out of The Tunnel’s Mouth was recorded in Hackett's living room and produced in a virtual studio there by long-time writing partner, keyboardist and producer Roger King."

Out Of The Tunnel’s Mouth tracklist is as follows:

‘Fire On The Moon’
‘Emerald And Ash’
‘Ghost In The Glass’
‘Still Waters’
‘Last Train To Istanbul’

Live bonus disc tracklist:

‘Blood On The Rooftops’
‘A Tower Struck Down’
‘Firth Of Fifth’
‘Fly On A Windshield’
‘Broadway Melody Of 1974’
‘Every Star In The Night Sky’
