The original line-up of Tyketto will be recording a new album this coming month to be be released on Frontiers Records next spring. This album will be the band's first studio album since 1995's 'Shine' and first with original vocalist Danny Vaughn since 1994's 'Strength In Numbers'.
Joining Vaughn on this release are original Tyketto members Brooke St. James, Michael Clayton and Jimi Kennedy. The band says, "These are some of the best ideas we have worked on in years. There's plenty of the classic 'Don't Come Easy' sound mixed in with some new ideas and some great surprises!"
Tyketto also have a few UK shows coming up just to get their feet wet again which will feature a couple of the new songs. On Saturday, November 26th at 3:00pm EST, Tyketto will be globally broadcasting a live webcast from the New York area. This show will feature the original line-up of the band onstage together for the first time in years, along with their fifth member, Bobby Lynch on keyboards. The full 90 minute show will be interactive and new ground for the band. Most importantly, it's a chance for Tyketto to finally be seen by fans of the band that have never had the opportunity to see their live show.
Tickets for the online fan interactive broadcast can be purchased at www.tyketto.de
