As their monumental show approaches in about a month, Above & Beyond have been working hard on their next artist album. In a recent interview, Tony McGuinness, one third the Above & Beyond, sat down with Irish News to discuss the upcoming album along with their success in the U.S.
For over a decade, Above & Beyond have built themselves into one the biggest names in dance music. One the key factors, as said by Tony, is their heightened popularity in the United States. They became the first UK dance group to sell out both Madison Square Garden and The Forum in Los Angeles. It only makes sense that their next milestone show be at the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington State.
If the past has taught us anything, we should expect a flurry new material at ABGT 250. Perhaps some new material from their upcoming album. When asked if the album is coming together, Tony replied,
Fans’ eyes should be lighting up.
Back in 2014, Above & Beyond graced Madison Square Garden with their 100th Group Therapy show. Here, they announced their new artist album, We Are All We Need and premiered some new tracks from the album. Flash forward to 2017, A&B return to the states for their 250th show with another new album in the works. Sometimes history has a way repeating itself.
No exact date has been announced yet for the new album or a name for the album. But if you know Above & Beyond, the title and songs will surely be “heartfelt, emotional, and tinged with sadness”. We’ll make sure to keep our eyes open for any news about the album and make sure to catch Above & Beyond in the U.S in the fall. Meanwhile, you can read the full interview .
