After an extensive hiatus, Joe’s progressive-fusion band PARALLEL MIND is getting ready to record their long-awaited second album! The group’s first album “Colossus ADEA” was released in 2005 through the Canadian label Unicorn-Digital and received rave reviews worldwide.
The new album is truly a momentous occasion; an accumulation of songwriting spanning the past decade as well as the reunion with past members. PM is thrilled to once again be working with original guitarist Aaron Harris and original bassist Tim Seisser. Former bassist Jason Pachona will also be contributing his talents. Tracking & mixing will begin in January 2015 and take place at The Alley Recording Company with engineer Marc Nelson. More details to come!
This month, Joe will be touring with the Parisian rock band, Teleferik. Formed in 2011 by Eliz Mourad (vocals/bass) and Arno Vincendeau (guitar), their music is a mixture of blues, 70′s rock, punk, and Lebanese. Visit the SHOWS page for tour dates!
