Rik Emmett is streaming samples of all songs featured on the upcoming November 11 release of his latest album “RES9.”
The project by Emmett and his touring band Resolution 9 – featuring guitarist Dave Dunlop, bassist Steve Skingley and drummer Paul DeLong – delivers new music with the help of guest appearances by Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie, and a reunion with Triumph members Mike Levine and Gil Moore.
“This album represents a journey through my life,” explains Emmett, “and the idea behind a lot of these songs is me trying to figure out who I am, and why I’m doing what I’m doing. There’s a common thread of positivity here that ties into the records I was making 30 years ago. What did I learn from making them? You’ll hear all of that echoed in the grooves of this album.”
“RES9” was first previewed with the lead track, “Human Race” - which features Lifeson – and “I Sing” with LaBrie.
The album will be available via CD, digital download and a limited-edition run of 300 copies on black and red vinyl.
