SAGA: "20/20"; New Studio Album Featuring Michael Sadler Out In July; Album Artwork, Track List Revealed

Legendary Canuck prog-rockers SAGA will release their new album, "20/20", on July 6th via earMUSIC. The ten-track opus commemorates vocalist Michael Sadler’s return to the band. The title "20/20" first of all refers to the album being the 20th of Saga, but in addition it’s a good luck wish to keyboardist Jim Gilmour, who had to undergo an eye operation during Saga’s latest European tour. "20/20" stands for the perfect eyesight.

20/20 tracklisting: 
'Six Feet Under' 
'Anywhere You Wanna Go' 
'Spin It Again' 
'Another Day Out Of Sight' 
'One Of These Days' 
'Ball And Chain' 
'Lost For Words' 
'Show And Tell' 
'Till The Well Runs Dry' 

According to a press release, with striking keyboard sounds and Michael Sadler’s stunning vocals, the album has all that it takes to become an instant fan favourite as well as a worldwide hit. The opener "Six Feet Under" features a dominant keyboard sound, roaring guitars and a chorus you can’t get out of your head. Followed by the catchy, high energy driven "Anywhere You Wanna Go", SAGA clarify that their original trademark sound is still going strong. The emotional ballad "Lost For Words" once again demonstrates Sadler’s incredible vocal range. 

Michael Sadler reflects his return to the band: “One thing that we agreed on was that, if and when I ever were to return, it would have to feel like it was exactly the right thing to do and exactly the right time to do it!” 

"20/20" will be available on standard CD and special edition, a premium CD+DVD digipak edition. The exclusive DVD follows the studio recordings of "20/20" and gives a great insight behind the scenes of creating and recording a modern classic. 

Following the new release will be summer and fall dates in Canada, USA, Europe and South America. The shows also celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band's 1983 album, "Heads Or Tales".
