Fascination Curve releases politically-charged album 'Corona Time in Amerika'
Prog-rocker super group Fascination Curve explores the political climate on their latest 7-track album 'Corona Time in Amerika.' Inspired by the likes of Toto, Asia, and ELO, their unique sound fuses these inspirations together whilst their own sound can be found in between. Made up of Gregg Bissonette (drums – Ringo Star All Star Band, Toto), Marc Bonilla (lead guitar, vocals – Asia, Toto), Ken Stacey (vocals – Elton John, Michael Jackson), Amy Keys (vocals – Phil Collins, Ringo Starr), Mha Bhatti (bass – Elton John, Electric Light Orchestra), Tim Ries (saxophone – Rolling Stones, Sheryl Crow), and mastermind Karl Lundeberg in arrangements.
Their latest album 'Corona Time in Amerika' showcases their unique sound. Explosive choruses, atmospheric drums and thrashing electric guitars can all be found within the album. The album is sure to entice you in with it's textually diverse and dynamic exterior. However, the lyrical content is something that the listener will also delve into as it attempts to find answers in a time that is very uncertain.
“The album comes from a long-standing concern about racism in all its forms, and the fact that the lives of my two mixed race daughters changed the moment Trump was elected.” Says Karl Lundeberg. “In a time of separation, the band was brought together by social unrest. The album takes on the subjects of Ukraine, Roe vs Wade, racism, and the continuing drift towards Civil War."
Karl Lundeberg remains active in both artistic and social communities. The artist was a protestor during 2020’s BLM riots and wrote and performed the musical scores for Sir David Hare’s indictment of the Bush adminstration’s involvement in the Iraq War ‘Stuff Happens’, as well as the Jon Robbie Baitz anti-Trump work ‘Vicuna’. With an important message to be spread, we can't wait to see where Fascination Curve will take this.
