Yes first album in 10 years enters billboard chart

Fly From Here Soars to #9 on Rock Charts and Lands at #35 on Top 200 Current Chart

Legendary progressive rockers, YES, have released their first album in ten years, Fly From Here. The album bows at #9 on the Billboard Rock album chart and #35 on the Billboard Top 200 Current Album chart, respectively. Released on July 12th through Frontiers Records in the USA, the long-awaited 20th studio album is the follow-up to 2001’s Magnification and marks the band’s return to working with legendary producer, Trevor Horn. Horn was at the production helm for the band’s chart-topping album, 90125 and also sang for YES on the Drama album in 1980. Critics are already crediting the ground-breaking band for releasing their “best work since the ‘70s” (Paste) and their “ability to still craft a richly appealing soundscape” (The Republican).
YES also recently released the music video for first single “We Can Fly”. The video was directed by award-winning filmmaker Ken Horn (BAFTA- andEmmy-Award winner for the BBC series “The Street”) and features a guest appearance by Trevor Horn. The video builds upon the existential aeronautic theme developed in the song’s lyrics. You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKJwXLCnBKs.
The band recently kicked off their summer tour on July 4th in Philadelphia. In support of Fly From Here, YES will be performing new music as well as hits from their hugely successful and indelible catalogue of music. The 22-city tour ends August 3rd in Mountain View, CA.
YES is Benoit David on vocals (his first studio recording with YES), Steve Howe on guitars/vocals, founder Chris Squire on bass/vocals, Geoff Downes on keyboards and Alan White on drums. First formed in 1968, YES’ remarkable career spans over 40 years and the band has time and again redefined the boundaries of rock music. YES has sold nearly 50 million albums worldwide and continues to stretch the boundaries of progressive art-rock with their symphonic use of sound and innovative musical styles.

New Yes Album

PROGRESSIVE ROCK ICONS YES RETURN WITH FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN TEN YEARS
THE TREVOR HORN PRODUCED FLY FROM HERE SET FOR RELEASE IN EUROPE ON JULY 1ST AND NORTH AMERICA ON JULY 12TH VIA FRONTIERS RECORDS
Debut single “We Can Fly” to be released digitally on June 13th

The most influential and ground-breaking progressive rock ‘n’ roll band in history, legendary rockers and Grammy Award winners YES, will release their first studio album in a decade, Fly From Here, on July 1st in Europe and July 12th in North America through Frontiers Records. Their long awaited 20th studio album is the follow up to 2001’s Magnification and marks the band’s return with producer, Trevor Horn, who produced the band’s chart topping album, 90125, in 1983 and also sang for YES on the Drama album in 1980. YES is Benoit David on vocals (his first studio recording with YES), Steve Howe on guitars/vocals, founder Chris Squire on bass/vocals, Geoff Downes on keyboards and Alan White on drums. Roger Dean, creator of a number of YES’ most memorable album covers, also returns with his signature style for Fly From Here.


At last we have some shape and dynamics within these tracks that are truer to the original idea of what a YES recording is about,” proclaims Howe.
The new album represents the best of YES from the 70s and the 80’s with a current twist,Squire adds.
All of the songs on Fly From Here embody that classic and now iconic YES sound and style. The first single, “We Can Fly,” (to be released digitally on June 13th) is borne from a piece of music that was written prior to the Fly writing sessions – an idea that has now grown into an overture and 5 subsequent movements that feature the unparalleled musicianship and virtuoso talents that are synonymous with YES. From the first chord of “Fly From Here – Overture” to the last note of the album’s closer “Into The Storm,” there is no question that the unmistakable technical proficiency of YES carries on.
"It’s awesome working with Trevor Horn again, he pays a lot of attention to detail. It was a great pleasure in the studio to play some incredible music with some great players,” says White.


First formed in 1968, YES’ remarkable career spans over 40 years and the band has time and again redefined the boundaries of rock music. YES has sold nearly 50 million albums worldwide and continues to stretch the boundaries of progressive art-rock with their symphonic use of sound and innovative musical styles. This summer, YES will return to the road to bring Fly From Here as well as some of their classic hits to their loyal following. European tour dates are scheduled for the fall.
