Thanks to all the incredible SAGA fans out there for participating in the video. You make the acoustic reimagination of their classic hit perfect.
Canadian prog-rock-band SAGA released their new studio album “Symmetry” on earMUSIC.
After going on tour in spring 2020, SAGA went straight into their home studios - the result: An album full of acoustic originals.
“Symmetry” offers a unique listening experience by bundling complex and delicate arrangements with familiar melodies and sounds.
“Symmetry” gives the listener the possibility to explore and discover SAGA classics like “Wind Him Up”, “Say Goodbye To Hollywood” and “Tired World” once more and in a completely new way.
SAGA managed to create more than just new versions of their songs; they created a sonic world full of little details that invites the listeners to dive deeper into the complex musical phenomenon that is SAGA.
Ian Crichton about the album:
“After opening for 'ourselves' Saga, on our 2017 European tour acoustically, the decision to record an acoustic record was born. This is different Saga everyone! We invited from Ontario Canada, Shane Cook on fiddle, and Stefany Seki, Beth Silver on cello to accompany us on our offside interpretation of music we've played for years, had a lot of fun doing so!“
“Acoustic Saga!?!?!... it’s like construction work for an electric guitar player.”
“Symmetry” will be available as CD Jewelcase, 2LP Gatefold and Digital on earMUSIC.
