Hear Andy Timmons Band's Latest Instrumental Gem, “Ascension”

Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of “Ascension,” a driving—and dangerously catchy—new song by Andy Timmons Band. The song is from their new album, Theme from a Perfect World, which will be released this Friday, September 30, via the band’s own label, Timstone Records.

The album, which was produced by Timmons and his longtime bassist, Mike Daane, features 10 new melody-based guitar instrumentals that Timmons hopes will strike an emotional chord with every listener.

“I’m really proud of these songs,” Timmons says. “Some of them don’t even have a guitar solo per se, which is kind of unusual for an instrumental guitar record, but that underscores the importance of the idea that a good song has to be there right from the start. It has to be something that people identify with and find themselves wanting to listen to over and over.”

In addition to Daane on bass, Theme from a Perfect World features Rob Avsharian on drums and original Andy Timmons Band drummer Mike Marine, who plays on five tracks.

“I think we’re just scratching the surface, as far as tapping into the music’s emotional content goes,” says Timmons of the vibe he and his bandmates strove to achieve on the new record. “My playing and musical tastes have changed or matured in some way over the years, and here, we’re trying to be impactful emotionally and certainly melodically.”
