World-renowned guitarist/composer Steve Hackett and his electric band will soon take to the road in North America to play select cities. Hackett and company will tour in support of Steve Hackett's new album Out Of The Tunnel?s Mouth, which hits streets in North America on June 8th via InsideOut Music. The release includes a special live bonus disc featuring solo and Genesis classics including "Firth Of Fifth," "Fly On A Windshield," and more.

According to a press release: ?Out Of The Tunnel?s Mouth is a rock album which features beautifully-sweeping symphonic sounds highlighted by Hackett's signature soaring guitar and unsullied vocals.

Emerald And Ash
