Rik Emmett & RESolution9 are gearing up to release new record RES9. The band have put out video for latest single Human Race which you can see below. Emmett had the following to say about the record:
“The idea behind ‘Human Race’ and a lot of the songs on the album was to figure out who I am and why I’m doing what I’m doing,” Emmett admits. “I’ve been around the block a few times, but one of the things I like about these lyrics is when we get to the last verse, and it says, ‘I’m still this guy. I still live this.’ And I think that’s very true. There’s also a line in there about raising a joyful noise — and I still want to do that too.”
The record also features the guitar chops of legendary Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson who said of the record “When Rik asked me to play on his new album, I didn’t hesitate for a second.”
RES9 is out November 11th on Provogue Records.
