Among the world’s most influential, ground-breaking, and respected progressive rock bands, Grammy Award winning YES are proud to announce they will release their new studio album, Heaven & Earth, July 22 on Frontiers Records. Having sold nearly 40 million albums in a career that has so far spanned more than four decades, Heaven & Earth sees YES continuing with its tradition of symphonic progressive rock that remains timelessly fresh and innovative. Heaven & Earth is available now for pre-order HERE.

here:http://smarturl.it/YES_Amz_Preorder. Heaven & Earth contains eight new tracks, each of which boasts the unique musicianship and craftsmanship that have come to be known as “the YES sound.” YES’ distinctive layered music, swirling arrangements, brilliant vocals and harmonies are all in abundance. Heaven & Earth is an album sure to please both long-time and new YES fans. For Heaven & Earth, YES teamed up with legendary Grammy Award winner Roy Thomas Baker (QUEEN, THE CARS, GUNS N’ ROSES, FOREIGNER, SMASHING PUMPKINS, ALICE COOPER, etc.), who handled the production and Billy Sherwood (TOTO, PAUL RODGERS, AIR SUPPLY, etc.) who mixed the album. Also onboard is long-time YES artist, the world-renowned Roger Dean, who again brings his masterful artistic creativity to the album’s cover art and packaging.

Tracklisting for Heaven & Earth:

  • "Believe Again"
  • "The Game"
  • "Step Beyond"
  • "To Ascend"
  • "In A World Of Our Own"
  • "Light Of The Ages"
  • "It Was All We Knew"
  • "Subway Walls"
To coincide with the release of Heaven & Earth, the multi-platinum progressive rock band--bassist CHRIS SQUIRE, guitarist STEVE HOWE, drummer ALAN WHITE, keyboardist GEOFF DOWNES and singer JON DAVISON--announced in March they’ll launch their 35-date summer tour featuring YES performing, in their entirety, 1971’s groundbreaking album Fragile for the first-time ever and a repeat performance from last year’s tour of 1972’s Close To The Edge, followed by an encore of the band’s greatest hits.

The album Fragile is considered to be their U.S. breakthrough album peaking at #4 on the Billboard Albumcharts in the U.S. The RIAA-certified double platinum album has sold over two million copies and features YES’ hit single “Roundabout” and other classics like “Long Distance Runaround” and “Heart Of The Sunrise”. It also marks the band’s first collaboration with artist Roger Dean on cover art, who has designed many of the band’s album covers and logos. The band’s album Close To The Edge--widely regarded as one of the greatest progressive rock albums ever recorded--was on the U.S. charts for 32 weeks, peaking at #3. Inspired by Siddhartha and their “state of mind” at the time, the Gold-certified album featuring epic suites such as “Close To The Edge” and “You And I” was named one of the “100 Greatest Guitar Albums of All Time” by Guitar World (2006).
