Kansas LogoKansas will release a new studio album, The Prelude Implicit, on September 23. The album is the first new one in 16 years for the band behind such classic rock staples as “Carry On Wayward Son” and ‘Dust In the Wind.” They will debut songs off the new album this fall as part of their Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour, which celebrates their breakthrough album.

The Prelude Implicit, the band said in an announcement, features 10 all new tracks written by the band and co-produced by Zak Rizvi, Phil Ehart and Richard Williams. It’s available for pre-order here.

It showcases Ronnie Platt’s lead vocals, David Ragsdale’s violin, Williams’ and Rizvi’s guitar, David Manion’s B3 organ and keyboards, Ehart’s drums and Billy Greer’s bass and vocals. Ehart and Williams are the only remaining members from the group’s earliest years.

Kansas returned to the studio in January after signing with Inside Out Music. The new album will be available on CD, Double 180 Gram Vinyl, and digitally on iTunes and Google Play.
