Italian Prog Ensemble NOT A GOOD SIGN To Release Sophomore Album “From a Distance”

NotAGoodSignMilan, Italy – Italy’s Fading Records/AltrOck will be releasing the highly anticipated second album by the Milan-based band NOT A GOOD SIGN. The new album is titled “From a Distance,” and in these tracks many will recognize the ‘old school’ Prog from the ’70s, but in a modern key, with a pinch of hard-rock and psych. Resonant vocal melodies and lyrics complete the gloomy but colorful imagery of the band.

Says Not a Good Sign, “For every band, a second record is a great achievement and at the same time an occasion to focus on past experience and visions. We expect we’ll satisfy all the people who enjoyed our first work and we hope to gain new fans, even amongst people who don’t like progressive rock.”

Not a Good Sign are proud and full of hope. Their second release, “From a Distance”, follows up where their 2013 self-titled debut album left off. “From a Distance” starts from the best parts of its predecessor and presents new developments and solutions. The Milan-based band, created in 2011 by Paolo “Ske” Botta and Francesco Zago (Yugen) along with producer Marcello Marinone, has a renewed line-up. During the February 28th album presentation, Not a Good Sign introduced to the fans their new guitarist Gian Marco Trevisan, replacing founding member Zago who left the band after the recording of “From a Distance.”

Upcoming gigs:
March 27th – Musicolepsia (Melegnano – Milan); May 29th – live unplugged Radio Cernusco Stereo; August 20th – Crescendo Festival (St. Palais sur Mer, France).
