Multi-instrumentalist Lucas Lee Releases New Record, Featuring Drumming Icon And Virtuoso: Marco Minnemann
For Immediate Release:
Orange County, CA: California-based, Canadian multi-instrumentalist Lucas Lee announces a new record release, featuring drumming icon Marco Minnemann (Joe Satriani, Steven Wilson, The Aristocrats, Mike Keneally). The 13-track instrumental rock fusion/ progressive rock full concept album is entitled, Acceptances of Gravitational Collapsing Manifestations.
After two previous records featuring virtuosic drumming by Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, Mr. Mister, XTC) and Tobias Ralph (Adrian Belew) respectively, Lee's new release continues that trend, this time, with Marco Minnemann behind the kit.
The story of the album is about a society where a powerful state's appetite for power, along with the perpetual greed of mega-corporations, resulted in their continuous collaborations, forming multiple invasive rulings at the expense of citizens' livelihoods. As unimaginable as some of the abusive trends were, most citizens lacked any willingness to resist, as they saw any action on their behalf involved changes in their addictive lifestyle behaviors. For the few that had the desire to act, they soon realized that there would be no escape.
Lucas: "I am most excited to be able to have Marco, who is widely seen by fans and peers as one of the most talented and creative drummers in the world, to take time out of his insanely busy schedule to play on my record. I think Marco's signature energy and power really shine though in this one. As a concept album, there's a definite flow and cohesion amongst the songs, but they were also written in a way to contain plenty of changes and areas for fun, angular groves. I also wanted to explore areas of complex dense harmony, so there are elements on that front too. The overall process of putting this record together took plenty of time and effort personally, but the experience has been overwhelmingly positive. Hopefully, listeners will enjoy this record as much as the experience of putting it together!"
