I think most of you know Fiction Plane, the English rock band featuring lead vocalist, guitar and bass player Joe Sumner (son of The Police frontman Sting), guitarist Seton Daunt and American drummer Pete Wilhoit.
Mondo Lumina is the title of their latest album, released in USA yesterday, November 13 (in UK and rest of Europe the album is out since February). It's the band's first studio album after Spark, released 5 years ago.
Two years in the making, Mondo Lumina was written in London, New York, New Haven and Los Angeles and was produced, mixed and engineered by the multi-talented Tom Syrowski (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Brandon Flowers, Vertical Horizon and many more high profile artists) at the legendary Henson studios in Los Angeles.
"The album takes a more textural approach than previous Fiction Plane records. Mellotron, organ, glockenspiel, hammerchord & reverb chambers were used to create soundscapes set against the traditional three piece sound. This gave way to a dynamic and often intimate vocal. With Tom at the helm he helped us to capture everything we were hoping for and far beyond" said Joe Sumner.
Where Do We Go From Here is the leading single from the new LP; it features Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, The Killers, Incubus) on Hammond organ and John Shanks (Bon Jovi, Van Halen, Lawson) who did background vocals.
