Rik Emmett, Alex Lifeson: classic rock legend Rik Emmett and his band RESolution9 release new album


Classic rock legend Rik Emmett and his band RESolution9 release new album

"RES9" will be released worldwide on November 11

Allied Forces! Rock & Roll Machine! Magic Power! If you're fan of classic rock, you should know these songs by legendary Canadian rock band Triumph by heart.

Former Triumph guitarist Rik Emmett signed with Mascot Label Group a few months ago, and it's time to reveal his new band and his new album. The members of RESolution9 are from Rik’s touring quartet: Dave Dunlop on guitar, Steve Skingley on bass, and Paul DeLong on drums, with Dave and Steve co-producing the project.

RES9 features contributions from Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie, and Rik Emmett’s onetime Triumph bandmates, bassist Mike Levine and drummer Gil Moore.

The first new track "Human Race", featuring a guest appearance by Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, will premiere in in less then two weeks. Keep an eye out on mascotlabelgroup.com, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

RES9 is available to pre-order on CD, black and red vinyl. The red vinyl is limited to only 300 copies worldwide, and available exclusively on the MLG webstore. These will sell out quickly, so act fast!
