After successfully releasing 2 albums in the 80’s (East/West & Through Your Eyes) and touring with the likes of Magnum and other name acts, Multi Story triumphantly returned in 2016 with their 3rd studio album Crimson Stone and an extensive UK tour to support it, playing many well respected venues and festivals. Multi Story have since continued to push the envelope throughout 2017 and are carrying the momentum into 2018 with new music, whilst aiming to please new and old fans alike.
Sheffield based Rock band The Tirith appear at Talking Heads in Southampton on Sun 3rd June, playing material from their 2015 album “Tales From the Tower” and songs from the forthcoming album “A Leap into the Dark”.
The Tirith are a Classic Prog Rock band playing original material, this is song based Rock, often described as Power Prog, and more guitar based than most. The band has a long history; but the present band reformed in 2010 and has been playing festivals and selected gigs since 2011. The band is known for playing a wide variety of music within the Rock / Progressive genre and beyond. If you like guitar based rock come and see Tim Cox riffing it up.
The main writers in the band are Tim Cox and Richard Cory, the band being fronted by Richard Cory on vocals and bass. The Tirith feature the stunning guitar playing of Tim Cox, Tim fashions melodic solos and has been described by Geoff Barton of Classic Rock Magazine as evoking the spirit of Gary Moore with his delicious solos and punchy power chords. The lineup is completed by Carl Nightingale on drums.
The music can be described as a fusion of Styx-like pomp rock with bluesy prog. Rock with a hard crust and a deep tremor in its heart. The bands influences are many but suffice to say if you like Rush, Styx, King Crimson, Pink Floyd and Opeth you will like this.
In the past The Tirith have appeared at The Cambridge Rock Festival, Danfest 2 and Danfest 4 (Leicester), Resonance Festival and HRH Prog VI. In 2018 they appear at Fusion Festival in Stourport. They have also supported Focus, The Enid, Gnidrolog, and Karnataka.
“This is powerful, high quality material. Once they have finally punched a hole in the sky, Cox’s solo spirals out into the ether. A tale that is well worth the wait. Prog January 2016
