10T Records is proud to announce the pending release of the new full length CD by TCP, entitled Fantastic Dreamer, on April 11, 2011, with a retail street date following on June 15th. TCP is a project based around the collective artistry of Henry Tarnecky (vocals), Blake Tobias (keyboards, bass), and Jack Wright (guitars, drums). This new progressive release includes guests Tom Shiben (bass), Nicole Tarnecky (backup vocals), and features Glenn Arpino (keys) along with his epic piece, "Vision."
TCP's 2009 debut CD, The Way, was a critical success that landed the band on many top 10 lists for the year. Fantastic Dreamer sees them further refine their sound, adding depth and layers to the foundation previously established. Deftly blending elements of classic-era and modern progressive rock, the nine tracks that make up Fantastic Dreamer showcase a haunting and emotive blend of vocals with layers of soaring guitar and keyboard passages which often ride a shifting and complex rhythm section.
"While not lacking for things to say musically, this time around the band focused more on Jack Wright’s prolific writing and playing styles to shape the basic direction for Fantastic Dreamer," says TCP's Blake Tobias. "Jack has a unique method of expressing his angular guitar. It tends to infuse our sound with an addictive progressive math rock type of foundation. In addition, I believe Fantastic Dreamer benefits from the extra scrutiny as a result of a truly band effort in production decisions. As for this new release, we remain very pleased to have our continued association with 10T Records, where we feel the label management support, artist quality and market visibility are paramount."
"We couldn’t be happier about bringing TCP’s newest release to the public," says 10T Records president Steve Carroll. "When I first heard the advance demos I was excited about how the band had evolved and deepened their sound. I think fans of the debut CD will be ecstatic and new listeners will become converts."
Fantastic Dreamer by TCP is available for immediate pre-order through the 10T Records website. All orders received between now and the official release date will ship by the end of the week prior to the official release.
