ASIA Reveal Details on 30th Anniversary World Tour & New Album

A brand new album and 30th anniversary world-tour has been announced by British super-group, Asia.

The band's original line-up of Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Carl Palmer and John Wetton will release new studio album 'XXX' (pronounced Triple X) on June 29th in Europe, July 2nd in the UK and on July 3rd in North America.

The new album has been produced by Mike Paxman and is being hailed as ASIA's best album since its classic early 80s releases. The album will be released on CD, collector's edition CD/DVD (featuring new music videos and behind the scenes footage), and on a limited edition vinyl.

The first single from the highly anticipated new record is entitled "Face On The Bridge" and will be released digitally worldwide on Monday May 14th.
