Dutch Prog/Sympho Rock Band ‘Kayak’ Releases First Song from Upcoming “Seventeen” Album, Instore Showcases Announced


Legendary Dutch progressive rock band Kayak will release their seventeenth studio album entitled “Seventeen” on the 12th January 2018 via InsideOutMusic. The first track ‘Feathers and Tar’ is available for streaming below.

To promote the new album Kayak‘s creative core Ton Scherpenzeel (keyboards), Bart Schwertmann (vocals) and Marcel Singor (guitar) will do three unique instore showcases one day later (January 13th). Free entrance! Locations and expected showtime:

Jan. 13th. – Instore Showcases (3 piece band)

11:00 hrs Velvet Music, Nieuwe Rijn 34. 2312 JE Leiden (NL)
13:00 hrs Velvet Music, Frederik Hendriklaan 217, 2582 CB Den Haag (NL)
17:00 hrs Velvet Music, Voldersgracht 3, 2611 ET Delft (NL)

“Seventeen” is now available to pre-order on 2CD Digipak (featuring an extra disc with 36 minutes of demo material), gatefold 2LP + CD & digital download. A strictly limited blue Gatefold 2LP+CD (200 copies only) is exclusively available at the band’s own official store.

Originally, the album’s release was already announced for October 2017 and a presale is available via Kayak’s official website. It remains valid but due to the new record deal, these pre-orders will be fulfilled in Jan. 2018 when InsideOutMusic officially releases “Seventeen”.

Now, with singer Bart Schwertmann and guitarist Marcel Singor joining Ton Scherpenzeel as the band’s creative core and additional members Kristoffer Gildenlöw (bass / ex Pain Of Salvation) and Collin Leijenaar (drums / Affector, Neal Morse, Dave Bainbridge), a reborn Kayak once again proves that the band’s name -though chosen randomly back in 1972 -is as appropriate as ever. Just when everyone expects the boat to sink, it miraculously resurfaces and sails on.

“Seventeen” also features a guest appearance by Camel guitar player Andy Latimer.

The history of Kayak goes way back to 1972, you can read it here (in Dutch).
