Last week, we announced that we’re heading to the studio in November to record our third album.  This week, we’re pleased to announce that the title for the album is “If All Goes Wrong.”  From September 15 – October 27, we’ll be running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise funds for the recording of the album.  Please visit www.aaronclift.com/indiegogo to make your contribution today!  Check out the video below for more details about the campaign:

Hey, ACE fans.  We have a big announcement for you today.  Many of you already know that over the last year, we’ve been writing new songs and premiering them at our shows.  We’re excited to announce that we’ve finished writing this new batch of songs and will soon be recording them for our third album!  We’ll be entering the studio in November and will be releasing the album in early 2018.

The new tunes are our most diverse to date – featuring everything from intricate prog epics, to crushing hard rock, to delicate ballads.  We’ve decided to enlist several top session guitarists to record the album with us.  Eric has decided, for personal reasons, to not play guitar on the new album and will be pursuing a new musical direction.  We wish Eric the best of luck with his solo career and thank him for the excellent guitar work he’s done with the band.

Our third album is going to have our best music to date, and we can’t wait to share it with you in the coming months.  Stay tuned next week for more big news about our third album, and thank you all for all of your support!

Our final video in our series of live videos from RosFest 2017 is our performance of parts 1 and 3 of “The Castaway Saga” from “Lonely Hills.”  (Song order in the video is: “Shipwrecked,” “Low Tide,” and “Staring at Fruit Out of Reach”) Joining us for this special performance is the ACE Quartet, featured on “Shipwrecked” and “Low Tide.”

Hey, ACE fans.  Wow, how time flies!  We are now 1 week away from RosFest 2017.  If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, there’s still time (click the picture below for a link to purchase your single-day pass).

Next week, we’ll be debuting several new songs from our upcoming third album as well as performing several songs from “Lonely Hills” and “Outer Light, Inner Darkness” with the ACE String Quartet.  Thank you all for your support in helping get to this moment.  We couldn’t have done it without you!  Eric, Devin, Tim, and I all look forward to meeting you next week at RosFest.

–Aaron

Hey, ACE fans.  We can’t believe that RosFest 2017 is only 2 months away!  Have you bought your tickets yet?

We’ll be debuting several new songs and will be adding a string quartet to several songs from “Lonely Hills” and “Outer Light, Inner Darkness,” so this definitely not a show to be missed.  As we get closer to the festival, we’ll have a few more updates for you.

Happy new year, ACE fans! We want to once again thank Prog Magazine for their coverage of The Aaron Clift Experiment in 2016 and for nominating us for the 2016 Limelight Award.

As you may have sadly heard, Prog Magazine’s parent company, TeamRock, went into bankruptcy at the very end of 2016, and Prog Magazine has folded. This is a huge blow to the progressive music community: for bands like ours, Prog Magazine was one of the ultimate resources for reaching a wider audience – for music fans, the magazine was a way to discover a world of exciting new bands.

If you care about Prog Magazine as much as we do, please join the new Facebook group, Bring Back Prog Magazine (click the picture below for a link to the group). Here, you’ll find a whole community of fans and musicians who are working together to help relaunch Prog Magazine.

Happy 2017, and thank you all for supporting The Aaron Clift Experiment and progressive music!
