Nach 5 Jahren unermüdlichen Tourens rund um den Globus, bei denen sie unter anderem auf den größten Bühnen der Welt standen, namen Tyketto ihre wiederbelebte Energie zusammen um im Frühjahr 2016 in die legendären Rockfield Studios in Wales (Queenj, Rush, Oasis) zu gehen und ihr neues Album aufzunehmen.
Lead-Sänger Danny Vaughn selbst dazu:
»Although we only had planned on recording ten songs for Reach, we were so pleased with everything, we decided to keep all twelve songs on the record. We unanimously decided on Reach as the title of the album, as it defines who this band is in 2016. We have a new energy, some incredible new members, and a fresh outlook toward the future. All of us have pushed each other beyond our limits to make what we feel is a pinnacle record in our catalog.«
Schlagzeuger und Gründer Michael Clayton Arbeeny fügt noch hinzu:
»Many bands who have been out as long as we have feel they need to fit into a preconceived notion of what their fans expect to hear. Following in the footsteps of icons such as Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Prince, we have decided to expand our musical boundaries and introduce our friends around the world to Tyketto 2016. Rest assured that all the songs on Reach still carry the trademark melodies and choruses our fans have grown to love over the decades. The band is feeling stronger and performing better than ever and we can't wait to share this music with the world.«
Neben Vaughn und Arbeeny komplettieren Chris Green (Gitarre und Gesang), Ged Rylands (Keyboard und Gesang) sowie Chris Childs (Bass) das aktuelle Line-Up.
