For­mer The Nice gui­tarist an­nounces new solo al­bum and UK show.

Prog - - Intro -

Davy O’List is em­brac­ing his pop­pier side on up­com­ing al­bum The Fu­ture’s Wild, which is due out next spring.

“I proved that I still had my prog routes with [2015 al­bum] Sec­ond Thoughts and it was time for me to progress and do some­thing new and dif­fer­ent,” he says. “It’s still prog but the genre is now more ad­vanced than it used to be and it’s more pop­u­lar. Steven Wil­son has de­scribed pop as The Bea­tles and Abba. He came from a heavy prog back­ground and de­cided to make more com­mer­cial-sound­ing mu­sic and had a No.1 al­bum. I hear that as pop prog.”

The songs were writ­ten on his 2016-2017 tour and fea­ture key­boards from his for­mer At­tack band­mate Bob Hodges. The Nice’s Alan O’Duffy will help out with the fi­nal cut, and will also mix O’List’s up­com­ing live set at HRH Prog in Wales in Novem­ber.
