Gig Of The Week: The Reasoning
BAND: The Reasoning
WHERE: Poole Mr. Kyp’s
WHEN: Wednesday, April 21
As proggies The Reasoning prepare to release new album Adverse Camber (out on May 3), their third, they also go back on the road – for the first time in 18 months!
“We haven’t toured properly since we supported Fish,” says bassist Matthew Cohen. “We’re gagging to go out and play live again.”
The Reasoning have undergone a major line-up transformation recently. The look band also has Rachel Cohen (vocals/percussion), Dylan Thompson (guitar/vocals), Owain Roberts (guitar), Maria Owen (vocals/acoustic guitar), Tony Turrell (keyboards/vocals) and Jake Bradford-Sharp (drums).
“I think we are a lot more focused now and, dare I say it, also more mature,” laughs the bassist. “All of us feel the new album is more cohesive. What we’re gonna do on this tour is everything from Adverse Camber, but in one block. That can be too much for fans to take, so we’ll spread it throughout the set, mixing it up with songs from our other albums, Awakening (2006) and Dark Angel (2008).
“I’m really looking forward to seeing how the fans react to the new stuff. I remember going to see Iron Maiden at Cardiff St. David’s Hall in 1986, and I was so excited to hear songs from the new album at the time, Somewhere In Time.”
This is the start of a hectic period for the band, with dates planned throughout the year as well as more recording, plus work on other projects.
