Asia announce US tour

Asia have announced dates for a US tour in support of their new album, “Gravitas.”

The 30-show trek begins September 11 in Norfolk, Connecticut and will wrap up in Solana Beach, California on October 20.

Produced and written by Geoff Downes and John Wetton, “Gravitas” introduces Asia’s new guitarist, Sam Coulson, who replaced Steve Howe last year following his return to the Yes lineup.

“Gravitas” is available in two configurations: a standard CD, and a Deluxe Edition that includes two bonus tracks and a DVD containing the “Valkyrie” music video, a promotional film, and footage of classic live Asia tracks such as “Heat of the Moment,” recorded with the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra in Bulgaria.

Asia are playing their first live dates for “Gravitas” in the UK this week.
