September: Lifesigns continue their UK tour enjoying fantastic reviews for 'Live In The Netherlands'
“An album for anyone with a penchant for for prog’s glorious past, yet looking for something refreshingly modern. Exceptional stuff” (PROG magazine)
If you’re not already aware, members of Lifesigns have worked with artists ranging from Asia and The Scorpions through to pop and jazz icons like Bonnie Tyler and Quincy Jones.
Out again across the UK starting June 2023, the band have been playing to rave reviews in the UK and Europe, and in May 2022 played on the music cruise ‘Cruise To The Edge’ out of Florida. This excerpt is from a typical review of their performance from The Prog Report :
“Lifesigns in the Theatre were a sight and sound to behold. Utterly and absolutely triumphant, this was my favourite concert of the entire cruise”.
Work has commenced on the fourth studio album, but meanwhile, the band the 2nd leg of their UK tour on 2nd September, but without drummer Zoltan Csörsz unable to perform with Lifesigns unfortunately due to unexpected family circumstances. Instead, the band will perform as a 3 piece using Zoltan's tracks from the’ Live in the Netherlands’ album. If the situation changes and Zoltan is able to play at any of the scheduled shows, then he will be back behind his drumkit as normal.
Lifesigns’ 2017 album ‘Cardington’ got to number 4 in the UK Indie chart without so much as a play on mainstream radio. The 2021 album ‘Altitude’ was crowdfunded by their dedicated fans in 40 countries worldwide (including 36 US States) and has been compared to everything from Steely Dan to Pink Floyd to U.K.
“A great album close to perfection” (MLWZ Poland)
Their current album, ‘Altitude’ was released on CD March 2021 and on vinyl July 2021, but as an independent release sold through the band, was not eligible to follow its predecessor into the official charts. Nonetheless it reached the Top 100 in the Amazon UK charts and was Number 1 in the US Gagliarchives radio chart (for 14 weeks) and in the Dutch iO Pages magazine chart. It was voted No. 2 album of 2021 in the Prog Magazine Readers' Poll, with individual accolades going to John Young (1st keyboards) and Dave Bainbridge (3rd guitar).
“Compositions are soulful, varied, epic and utterly glorious in their musicality. This underrated guitarist delivers a moment of musical Zen that is as good as anything you have heard from a Rothery, Rabin,Gilmour or Howe. Take a bow, Mr Bainbridge – you have made the angels sob in the best possible way” (The Prog Report)
“One of the finest sounding albums I’ve heard for years. So much space between the instruments the album seems to breathe”
“Quite exquisite music with goose bumps aplenty. Simply Stunning” (Fireworks)
“Everything I love is there; damn, these moments are rare !“ (French review)
