Progressive rock group Yes has announced a 2013 spring tour that will see them touring N. America, starting in West Wendover, NV and ending in Detroit, MI. During the tour, the band will be performing three classic albums in their entirety: 1971′s The Yes Album, 1972′s Close To The Edge and 1977′s Going For The One. Apparently this will be the first time since 1973 that the band will perform an album in its entirety on a tour. You can see the tour dates below.

I recently got the opportunity to do a phone interview with Damon Fox, singer and keyboardist of progressive rock band Bigelf. Damon was a very cool guy who was eloquent and intelligent and gave some great responses that were not only well thought out, but also very intimate and personal. Read on to see how Damon responds to questions about a new Bigelf album, how the band survives the rigors of the road as well as his thoughts on the current state of music and a few of his favorite horror movies!
Bigelf’s last album, ‘Cheat The Gallows’ came out in 2008. Check inside for the video to their latest single ‘The Evil’s of Rock and Roll’!
