Gizmodrome, a new band re-defining the words, “super group” will release their first self-titled album worldwide on earMUSIC on September 15th, 2017.
Gizmodrome is the high-voltage band formed by Stewart Copeland (The Police and multi-awarded soundtracks composer), Mark King (Level 42), Adrian Belew (ex-King Crimson, David Bowie, Frank Zappa and Talking Heads) and Vittorio Cosma (who played with Italian prog legends PFM and an impressive list of Italian and international stars). The band will not only release a new record in September, but announce tour dates shortly.
Gizmodrome began with the old school approach of four musicians at the ready, gathering in one rehearsal studio, ready to play and create.
Stewart says, “In these modern days of “long-distance recording”, with musicians emailing each other sound files, never having been in the same room, it is not a surprise that the four us, playing one step from each other, would create this music: vibrant, electric, and unpredictable.”
Stewart Copeland who is known for his exceptional drum style is the wild talent behind the drums in Gizmodrome, but also takes the lead as singer on most of the tracks. It is the match of his unique vocal approach with the melodic vocals lines of Mark King and the extravagant singing style of Belew that lends itself towards the energy and success of each song on this project.
“Gizmodrome” was produced by Claudio Dentes, the wizard producer that could be best described as the musical version of Dr. Brown in “Back To The Future”, responsible for some of the most creative and successful Italian production for the last 30 years.
“Progressive Pop” could up sum the elements in Gizmodrome, but it would probably do no justice to the wild rock guitars of Adrian Belew or the imaginative and poetic keyboards of Vittorio Cosma.
