Focus Announce Album Release And UK Tour Dates

Read about Focus’ new album ‘Focus X’ and see their UK Tour Dates here!

Legendary progressive rock veterans Focus are set to release their new studio album ‘Focus X‘ on 5th November.

A new Focus era has arrived. There is a rejuvenated passion in the new compositions that adorn the new album ‘Focus X‘, which features a full scale Roger Dean painting on the cover.  

Thijs van Leer commented “It’s a thrill to have finally completed Focus X; we are all ecstatic and looking forward to playing the new material on the forthcoming Focus X Tour.”

This album and the following gigs will surprise the loyal fans. They will hear once again all the classic Focus tunes and they will be surprised at the strength and depth of the new material. “Our music is evolution, not revolution”, Thijs van Leer once said about the music of Focus.

After a comeback which resulted in the well received albums ‘Focus 8‘ and ‘Focus 9‘, the band is now back on the frontline, with a fantastic line-up. Also back on the drums is Pierre van der Linden, who is internationally renowned for his rhythmic skills, and is still a defining factor in the Focus sound.  Bassist Bobby Jacobs, who stems from a well-acclaimed Dutch musical family and guitarist Menno Gootjes, who participated in Focus at an earlier stage, completes the band’s current line-up.
