The 24th album from fearless experimental rock innovator Mike Keneally (known for his work with Frank Zappa, Joe Satriani, Dethklok and many others) is You Must Be This Tall, and it will be released on August 27, 2013. It can be pre-ordered now at The Mike Keneally Store, complete with an instant mp3 or FLAC download and digital booklet.
Featuring 12 largely instrumental pieces, the album is a wildly careening ride through multiple moods, unified by Mike's virtuoso turns on guitar and keyboard, and his widely respected compositional acumen. Many songs feature Mike on all instruments, but expert assistance also comes from Marco Minnemann, Bryan Beller, Joe Travers, Rick Musallam, Missy Andersen and XTC's Andy Partridge (Mike's co-songwriter on 2012's massively acclaimed Wing Beat Fantastic). Moods range from madcap humor to deep introspection, all captured in truly sumptuous audio quality-- this is an album that rewards dedicated attention with a good set of headphones. You Must Be This Tall is a dream come true for fans of adventurous music made with heart and wit.
